Pigmentation

Pigmentation is a skin condition in which you will start noticing brown patches or spots appearing on your skin surface. This skin condition is often also known as hyper-pigmentation, which occurs due to an increase in melanin production or an increase in the number of pigment-producing cells in the skin.

Some birthmarks are in the form of pigmentation and could exist anywhere on the body, especially face, neck, shoulders, hands, or back.
