  • In simple terms, the formation of dark spots on the skin is known as hyperpigmentation. It may occur on the body in the forms of both small and large patches. The cause of hyperpigmentation is the increase in the level of melanin (the pigment that gives colour to the skin) in the skin. Some common types of hyperpigmentation include post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, sunspots, and melasma.
