Freckles and pigmentation are both related to the distribution and concentration of melanin in the skin. Melanin is a pigment produced by special cells called melanocytes, which are located in the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin.
Freckles are small, flat, tan to light-brown spots that appear on the skin. They are usually more common in individuals with fair skin, red hair, and light-colored eyes. Freckles are caused by an increased production of melanin in response to exposure to sunlight. When the skin is exposed to the sun, melanocytes produce more melanin to protect the skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. The increased melanin production leads to the formation of freckles.
Freckles are generally harmless and do not pose any health risks. However, they can become more prominent with sun exposure and may darken during the summer months. Freckles are often genetic, meaning they can be inherited from parents or other family members. Some people may have a genetic predisposition to freckles, while others may not develop them at all.
This occurs when certain areas of the skin become darker than the surrounding skin. Common causes of hyperpigmentation include excessive sun exposure, hormonal changes (such as during pregnancy or with the use of birth control pills), and certain skin conditions or injuries.
Hypopigmentation refers to areas of the skin that are lighter or have less color than the surrounding skin. It can be caused by conditions such as vitiligo, which is characterized by the loss of melanocytes in certain areas of the skin, or by certain infections, injuries, or autoimmune disorders.
Melasma is a common form of hyperpigmentation that causes brown or grayish-brown patches on the face, particularly on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and upper lip. It is often associated with hormonal changes, such as during pregnancy or with the use of hormonal medications.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH):
PIH occurs as a result of skin inflammation or injury, such as acne, eczema, or a wound. After the inflammation subsides, the affected area may develop increased pigmentation, appearing darker than the surrounding skin.
