Pigmentation Disorder Treatment Market: Overview

Pigmentation is a skin condition caused by high quantities of melanin, a pigment produced by melanocytes. The amino acid tyrosine is oxidized, resulting in the formation of melanin. Melanin is carried by keratinocytes and, while it is innocuous, it dulls the skin. It mostly affects the face, although it could also impact various regions of the body. Whenever melanocytes are harmed, the body's melanin synthesis varies. The skin blackens or lightens as a result of this condition. The formation of melanin causes the skin to darken, while reduced synthesis of melanin causes the skin to lighten.
