Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition where patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin. It is commonly found on the cheeks, forehead, upper lip and also other areas of the body such as the hands and chest.
