Pigmentation means the coloring and tone of your skin. Special cells called melanocytes creates melanin, which is how your skin gets its color or pigment. When the melanocyte cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects the melanin production, causing one to have lighter or darker skin. Certain skin disorders can also cause patches of the skin to discolor. Some affects the pigment of the whole body. The discoloration can be both unsightly and uncomfortable to live with.
