How to Get Rid of Dark Spots

The type of dark spot that is left behind after a pimple is gone is called post inflammation hyperpigmentation. It occurs after an inflammation like acne heals, but can also result from any injury to the surface of the skin.  The skin responds to inflammation on its surface by generating new skin cells to heal the damaged skin. Dark spots occur when the cells that are sent to restore the surface of your skin contain too much melanin.
