Hyperpigmentation acne can be a frustrating skin concern to deal with. If you're looking for fast and effective ways to address it, read on to discover some tips and treatments that can help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation caused by acne.


What is hyperpigmentation acne?

The word "hyperpigmentation" is made up of the words "hyper," which implies excessive or over, and "pigmentation," which refers to the color of skin tissue. An excessive pigment in the skin is what is meant by hyperpigmentation.

Acne hyperpigmentation is when a dark area develops on the skin after a zit has cleared up. Inflammation causes the skin to become hyperpigmented after acne. Acne, blemishes, pimples, and other skin diseases like eczema can also cause inflammation. All skin types may develop these black spots, but those with darker skin tones are more likely to do so. In contrast to other types of acne, hyperpigmentation acne presents as a dark spot or patch on the skin rather than a raised pimple.


What causes hyperpigmentation acne

Because the skin produces extra melanin when a pimple is active, dark spots may develop on the skin after it heals. The pigment melanin is what gives skin its color and the excessive release of Melanin can give the skin a tan, brown, or dark brown appearance when it accumulates in a single area or as a patch on the surface of the body. The dermis is where some acne lesions with hyperpigmentation can develop. Deeper lesions will have a blue-gray appearance and may become permanent.

What causes varied levels of hyperpigmentation is unknown to medical professionals. More research is required to ascertain the influences on this factor after skin inflammation, melanin overproduction may take place. According to research, several immunological and inflammatory variables can increase melanin synthesis.

As was previously said, melanocytes generate melanin, which in turn produces pigment. The activation of melanocytes and the release of melanin increase with the length of time it takes for a wound to heal. Acne marks that are hyperpigmented develop in this manner.

Picking at zits is one of the main causes of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation associated with acne. Whiteheads or blackheads do not heal. Instead, the oil and dead skin are removed, and the pore soon goes back to normal. On the other hand, cysts and pimples need time to cure. Hyperpigmentation enters the picture at this point. Avoiding acne in the first place is the best way to manage hyperpigmentation that results from acne.


Acne Scars Vs Hyperpigmentation

The terms "post-acne hyperpigmentation" and "acne scarring" are frequently used interchangeably. Every change to the skin after a spot is called an acne scar. Although acne scarring and post-acne hyperpigmentation can both develop after a breakout, they are fundamentally distinct from one another.

Hyperpigmentation is unrelated to acne scars, despite the fact that they may appear to be connected. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) spots are flat skin marks, but acne scars can be elevated or pitted. Focusing on acne control is the initial step in treating both acne scars and Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation .

As the skin's texture is physically altered, acne scars develop. Post-acne hyperpigmentation, in contrast to acne scarring, is merely a type of skin pigmentation and does not affect the texture of the skin.
