Press release from: Persistence Market Research

Skin pigmentation refers to a skin disorder that causes either lightening of skin or darkening of skin when compared to the existing skin color. In general, hyperpigmentary disorder relates to darkening of skin and hypopigmentation means lightening of skin color. Pigmentation disorders affect the skin color causing skin appear as discolored and blotchy. Color of skin is regulated by a skin component called melanin which is produced by some special cells present in the body. Pigmentation is caused due to minimal or excessive production of melanin owing to the damaged or unhealthy melanin producing cells. Melanin protects our skin from sun induced skin cancer and prevents the sunlight to penetrate deep into the skin by acting as an as an absorbent filter for UV-Rays. The most common pigmentation disorders are melasma (hyperpigmentary disorder), vitiligo (hypopigmentary), albinism (inherited rare disorder) and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Melasma occurs due to the hormonal changes such as pregnancy, oral contraception; and after the sun exposure that increases the melanin concentration in the skin. In USA, 5 - 6 million women are affected by melasma which comprises 80% of pregnant women in Mexico and 50-75% pregnant women in USA. However, vitiligo is an acquired skin disorder caused by depigmentation or lightening of skin. Individuals with over exposure to sun, hormonal changes, stress and overuse of cosmetics and hair dyes are more susceptible to higher risks of skin pigmentation disorders. Also, genetics and heredity are some of the reasons behind skin pigmentation.

Skin pigmentation treatment is of extreme importance as people are more concerned to improve the appearance of affected skin. In order to treat a skin pigmentation disorder, a physician or dermatologist uses 2 approaches that include: pharmacological treatment using topical drugs, hydroquinone, azelaic acid, L-ascorbic acid and cosmetic treatment using chemical peels, laser therapy, dermabrasion and skin grafting. As cosmetic treatment provides effective and efficient solution, thus it is most commonly preferred over pharmacological treatment methods.
