Melasma (mask of pregnancy, chloasma) is patches of dark skin that appears on the area of the face which is exposed to sun. It is more common in females and individuals with darker skin-tones who live in sunny atmospheres. It is thought to be basically identified with external sun exposure, hormones like anticonception medication pills, and inner hormonal changes as found in pregnancy. Melasma is basically darker-than-typical skin influencing the cheeks, brow, upper lip, nose and button, as in a symmetrical way. It might be constrained to the cheeks and nose or simply happen overlying the jaw.

Skin Dark Spots

Dark spots on the skin, likewise called hyperpigmentation, are a typical skin issue particularly starting in middle age. Purposes behind dark spots are because of development of overabundance melanin on the skin. These brown appearing spots show up typically around the cheeks, arms and hands. Many refer to them as “age spots”. They are treated by Intense Pulsed Light Therapy and Microdermabrasion or by using sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF)

Melasma Treatment

Melasma treatment incorporates Hydroquinone, Tretinoin and corticosteroids, Other topical (connected to the skin) prescriptions like azelaic acid or kojic acid Chemical peel.

Skin tumor Skin growth — the irregular development of skin cells — frequently grows on skin presented to the sun. The two most normal sorts are basal cell tumor and squamous cell malignancy. They mostly appear on the head, face, neck, hands, and arms. Another sort of skin growth, melanoma, is more risky yet less regular.

Skin lesions

A skin lesion is a shallow development or patch of the skin that does not resemble like the region encompassing it. Skin sores can be gathered into two classifications: primary and secondary. Primary skin sores differs in skin color that possibly exhibit during childbirth, for example, moles or pigmentations, or that may be procured during a man's lifetime, for example, those connected with irresistible infections (e.g. warts, skin inflammation, or psoriasis), allergic responses (e.g. hives or contact dermatitis), or natural agents (e.g. sunburn, weight, or temperature extremes). Secondary skin lesions are those adjustments in the skin that outcome from essential skin sores, either as a characteristic movement or as a consequence of a person manipulating (e.g. scratching or picking at) a primary lesion.

Hair Color

Hair color is the pigmentation of hair follicles melanin. There are two sorts of melanin eumelanin and pheomelanin. In the event that more eumelanin is available, the shading of the hair is darker; if less eumelanin is available, the hair is lighter. Conditions influencing hair color are Aging or achromotrichia, Stress and so on.

Welcome Message from the Editor-in-chief

Dear All,

Greetings from Journal of Pigmentary Disorders!

Special Issue Release 2017

Topic: Dermoscope on Pigmentary Disorders

On behalf of the editorial board members, it is with great pleasure, humility and honour that I welcome you to the fourth edition of Journal of Pigmentary Disorders, an international peer-reviewed journal published by OMICS International.

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Fourth volume of skin and Pigmentation for which I have acted as Editor in chief.

Over the past 4 years the journal has done a fantastic job, maintaining its place as the leading dermatological publication addressing skin and pigmentation care of people. The Journal has acted always with the utmost academic integrity, which combined with his breadth and depth of understanding of research methods and clinical issues in people and a prodigious appetite for hard work makes a hard act to follow. I am very aware of the responsibilities that the editor's role entails, and I approach my new role with both excitement and some trepidation!

The journal will continue to publish high quality clinical and epidemiological research in skin health and pigmentary diseases in later life. Original research articles from the bulk of the content, with systematic reviews an important sub-section. The methodological quality of such publications has improved dramatically over the last few years, influenced by reporting standards guidelines.

I will encourage all authors to work to these standards. Such emphasis on methodological rigour is vital to ensure that conclusions reached from publications contained in the journal are valid and reliable.

Peer review remains a vital component of our assessment of submitted articles. There have been criticisms of this process, including delaying publication, unreliability of decision making, overly conservative approach automatically rejecting ‘non-standard’ ideas, and that peer review is poor at detecting errors and misconduct. However these weaknesses can be managed by an effective and active editorial office, and I believe they are outweighed by the benefits. There is strong consensus that accepted articles are often improved by peer review after referees' comments and criticisms are dealt with; this explicit appraisal process also helps to engender trust of the reader.

However even the best clinical research publications, subjected to close scrutiny by peer review, often have weaknesses. Here editorials and commentaries play a key role in exploring more contentious issues in a balanced way, allowing the reader to make an informed decision on how or whether their dermatological practice should be altered.

It is important this journal have a good balance of different article type within the journal. I am keen to encourage publication of high-quality evidence-based guidelines in Pigmentary Disorders. Such articles are widely read (and downloaded), can have major impact on dermatological and dermatopathological practices, and also tend to be highly cited to the benefit of our Impact Factor 0.14 with Index Copernicus Value: 61.93. The journal also has the potential to (re-) shape thinking on important concepts in skin care, and here ‘new horizons’ articles have a particular role.

The paper journal remains popular amongst readers, and it will remain the core output. However the use of electronic media is now a vital component of dissemination, providing a vehicle for wider international access to download selected publications, encouraging debate and discussion in letters to the editor, and providing a mechanism for publishing complex detailed appendices that are of interest to only a small proportion of readers. The links with the facebook post and twitter feed are becoming ever more important as a means of drawing attention to important publications in the journal.

I am fortunate to be supported by a highly effective team; including Albella Johnson in the editorial office who ‘pulls the whole show together’. The current group of Associate Editors and editors work incredibly hard particularly in the assessment and processing of submitted articles. Links with our publisher Omics Publishing group are excellent, ensuring we are at the forefront of developments in the specialised domain of publishing. The journal is also backed up by a stellar cast of experts on our international advisory board, which comprises individuals of the highest standing in dermatological medicine; we are fortunate to have them as ambassadors for the journal.

Lastly I should thank all our submitting authors, who have toiled in the production of their work, and have chosen pigmentary Disorders as the journal they would like to publish in. Sadly due to pressures on publication ‘space’ less than 20% of submissions are eventually accepted for publication, so inevitably many of those submitting will be disappointed by rejection. Those that do have their work accepted should be proud of their achievement!

We have created this publication with the intention of providing a space for the generation of knowledge, dialogue, critique, debate, and collaboration among an international community of child, youth, family and community practitioners and scholars and aims to keep scientists, clinicians and medical practitioners, researchers, and students informed and updated on the ongoing research in the relevant area. The immediacy of e-based publication makes it possible for us all to be fully connected to each other and to developments in our field and to be directly involved in ongoing knowledge construction. The journal is independent of corporate demands and the overlay of profit-making and profit-taking and we can therefore invite you to be full participants in the creative process that we are undertaking together.

I welcome original research, theoretical contributions, reviews of the literature, critical commentaries, case studies, book reviews, and works-in progress. In each of this areas there are different journals dealing with very specific aspects intended for a limited audience. Similarly, interdisciplinary researches are often difficult to publish in specialized journals and part of the aim of Journal of Pigmentary Disorders is to capture high-quality works that doesn’t clearly fall within the scope of other journals. This open-minded stance toward the scope of the journal allows overcoming knowledge fragmentation and the integration between apparently different topics providing the reader with a global view on the topic of interest.

The Journal of Pigmentary Disorders (JPD) publishes reports describing original research on all aspects of cutaneous biology, skin disease and skin Pigmentation. Topics include biochemistry, carcinogenesis, clinical research, development, epidemiology and other skin-based research, melanocyte biology, microbiology, molecular and cell biology, pathology, percutaneous absorption, pharmacology, photobiology, physiology, skin structure, wound healing, Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome, Hypomelanosis, Becker melanosis, Abnormal pigmentation, dyspigmentation, Minocycline Hyperpigmentation, Lentigines, Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, Carotenemia, Argyria, Pityriasis alba, Melasma, Albinism, Pigmented Lesions of the Eyelid, Acne, Actinic Keratosis, Basal Cell Carcinoma, Benign Skin Lesion, Cellulitis, Cold Sore, Dermatitis, Folliculitis, Fungal Nail Infection, Hair Loss, Herpes Simplex Infection, Hives, Intertrigo, Itchy Skin, Keloid Scar, Leg and Foot Ulcers, Melanoma, Nail and Nail Bed Infection, Psoriasis, Ringworm, Rosacea, Seborrheic Dermatitis Seborrheic Keratosis, Shingles, Skin Cancer, Skin Discoloration, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Telogen Effluvium, Varicose Veins, Warts, Aging hand, Allergies, Atopic eczema, Excessive sweating, Fat pads, Hair loss, Herpes, Malignant melanoma, Melasma , Moles , Nail fungus, Non-melanoma skin cancers, Perioral dermatitis, Psoriasis, Rosacea, Sagging, Scars, Skin cancer, Stretch marks, Varicosis, Wrinkles and many more..

Original Articles, Review Articles, and Letters to the Editor are standard features. Perspectives and Commentaries are invited by the Editorial Board. Online features now under development seek to make JID content more relevant and accessible to trainees and clinician-educators.

Reports that primarily or exclusively concern a methodology, with the data documenting utility or feasibility, rather than providing new biologic insights, are discouraged. Submissions reporting new methods in combination with mechanistic insights into the problem being investigated are, in contrast, most welcome.

Case reports or case series, unless they provide new biologic insights, are rarely appropriate for the Journal.

The editorial board members and the peer-reviewing process will stimulate the opening of a constructive debate on safety and efficacy testing scientific requirements with the vision to fill the gap due to the lack of recognized protocols.

As the editor in chief, I am delighted to be a part of this new interdisciplinary initiative, which I believe is exactly the type of platform needed to highlight and broaden skin biology into widespread acceptance with the highest values of scientific integrity to which the Journal of Pigmentary Disorders is inspired.

Once more, on behalf of the editorial board members, I welcome you to this journal. We look forward to your submissions and to publish your manuscripts.

You  can be our Editorial board member (or) Reviewer to our Journal, If you are interested, you are requested to send a recent passport size photo (to display in our website) and your C.V, Biography (150 words), a short editorial on any of your research interest for our records.

We are delighted that you are joining us as readers and hope you will also join us as contributors.
