Pigmentation Treatment In Delhi- Dr. Syed Hussain

Pigmentation is a term used to refer to colouration, especially of the skin. Melanin, a pigment in the skin, is responsible for giving the skin its colour. Sometimes, excessive pigmentation can occur due to various causes.

Our skin types are categorised into six types and each of them has unique characteristics and tendencies. A deviation from our usual skin colour can be concerning to many and cause undue anxiety. If you are experiencing such distress, it is comforting to know that it can be treated. Pigmentation treatment in Delhi is available with Dr Syed Nazim Hussain.

Skin is an essential part of our body and everyone wants their skin to be smooth, free from dark spots, acne, and wrinkles. Who doesn’t want to look good? And that is why we are extremely careful about taking good care of our skin every day. Earlier, people used to visit dermatologists only for major issues, but now when everyone judges based on how you look, skincare has become a very vital part of our day-to-day life.

Facial skin is very sensitive as compared to the skin on the rest of your body that is highly susceptible to pollution, excessive sun exposure, and abrupt climate change. Especially in Delhi NCR, where there is so much air pollution and uneven climate changes, these factors have great side effects on your facial skin. Hence problems like acne, tanning, acne scars, and Face Pigmentation in Delhi are common. To treat this problem you can find many clinics for pigmentation treatment in Delhi. Our team at Royal Lush Clinic is very experienced and specialises in providing the best treatment for face pigmentation in Delhi.

Symptoms of hyperpigmentation

The common symptoms of pigmentation include:

  • Brown, tan or black coloured spots 
  • Patches of skin that are more deeply coloured than the adjacent normal skin
  • Red, pink or purplish patches or streaks over the skin surface
  • Symmetrical patches of increased colouring that appear on the forehead, neck, stomach and face
  • Large patches of darkened skin that may be present on the back, the dorsal side of the body, etc.

Causes of hyperpigmentation

  • Injuries to the skin that heal and remain as dark patches
  • Skin inflammatory conditions, such as acne and lupus
  • Old acne blemishes
  • Darkening of the skin due to skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, etc
  • Excessive sun exposure causes post-inflammatory pigmentation
  • Age-related
  • Endocrine disorders, such as Addison’s disease, Cushing’s Syndrome, PCOS, Diabetes, etc.
  • A combination of genetic factors, including freckles, lentigines, Mongolian spots, Becker’s nevus, acanthosis nigricans, etc.
  • Allergic conditions caused by hypersensitivity and drug reactions
  • Certain vitamin deficiencies, such as Vitamin B12
  • Some hereditary disorders, such as Peutz-Jeghers syndrome.

Whatever be the cause of the problem, you can approach Dr Syed Nazim Hussain for pigmentation treatment in Delhi.

Diagnosis of hyperpigmentation

The diagnosis of hyperpigmentation is made through:

  1. Physical examination
  2. Detailed history
  3. Investigations

Physical examination:

  • The type, colour and shape of the lesion and the pattern of distribution is examined.

Detailed history:

  • Your dermatologist will delve deeper and ask you about how it started, any medications that you have been taking, any of your conditions that predispose to the pigmentation, family history of any similar condition, etc.


  • Sometimes, a sample of the skin may be taken for microscopic examination. 
  • Blood tests may be required to check if there are any systemic conditions.

Once the diagnosis is established, your pigmentation treatment in Delhi can be readily initiated by Dr Syed Nazim Hussain.

Which treatment is best for pigmentation?

Pigmentation, or hyperpigmentation, is the darkening of the skin in localised patches, or sometimes this occurs in widespread areas in generalised hyperpigmentation. The type of treatment will depend on the type and cause of pigmentation along with other factors such as age, your medical condition, etc. 

The treatments available for pigmentation are

  • Topical products and oral medications
    • Topical applications in the form of creams, lotions, or ointments may be prescribed by your dermatologist
    • There are oral medications that help to reduce the visibility of the discolouration
  • Chemical Peels

    • Chemical peels are a combination of acids, vitamin C, and retinoids and work by exfoliating the skin and treating pigmentation by correcting uneven skin tone.

    • When chemical peels are combined with light therapy, they can help to disintegrate the excess pigment in the skin gradually and retain the complexion.

  • Light and Laser Treatments

    • When light and laser treatments are used in multiple sessions, they are effective in clearing out the complexion and maintaining the skin tone.

    • Treatments using light and laser can clear sun damage, a very common cause of hyperpigmentation.

    • Laser is a form of light therapy and uses continuous, short, high-intensity light beams to rejuvenate the skin to a refined and firmer tone.

    • These treatments combat sun damage, pigmentation, and scars by delving into the deeper skin tissues through wavelengths that are useful to exfoliate the superficial layers of the skin and ablative wavelengths to penetrate the deep layers.

  • Microdermabrasion
    • This treatment works well for those with superficial pigmentation and will be done based on your skin type.

Types Of Pigmentations

1. Freckles

Freckles are tiny brown patches on your skin that are caused due to sun exposure or Ultraviolet rays. Freckles mostly occur for those who have a fair complexion. They are caused due to an increase in pigment-producing cells called melanocytes and dark pigment melanin. Freckles are less harmful and mostly fade out during the winter season. There is pigmentation treatment available for freckles to eliminate them. Freckles may sometimes appear yellow, black, light brown, or reddish but they are always darker than the surrounding skin. To eliminate and reduce their effect, our skin specialist doctor in Gurgaon can effectively work towards all your skin and hair problems.


There are two types of Freckles:

    1. Ephelides
    2. Lentigines

Ephelides is a freckle type which is generally a 1mm to 2mm flat spot that is red and light brown. This type of freckle may sometimes occur due to heredity and is mostly seen in people with fair or light complexions.

Lentigines are often larger and darker than normal freckles. Unlike common freckles, this type of freckle does not fade away in winter. Lentigines types of freckles are only formed after long exposure to sunlight or U V rays.

Find the best dermatologist in Delhi to help you treat your facial problems. Freckles tend to recur if they are repeatedly exposed to the sun even after treatment. A chemical peel is the best pigmentation treatment to lighten the freckles.

2. Melasma

In Melasma, brown or grey patches tend to occur on your face. This type of pigmentation is mostly seen in pregnant women. The main reason which causes Melasma is changing hormone level and high sun exposure. When our skin is overexposed to the sun, it causes dark patches on our face due to excessive production of the pigment melanin.


Melasma can occur on the face in three different patterns i.e

    1. On the upper lip, cheek, nose and forehead.
    2. On the jaw.
    3. On the area of the upper Cheeks.

Melasma can also occur on body parts such as forearms and neck.

The four different types of Melasma are:

    1. Epidermal Melasma.
    2. Dermal Melasma.
    3. Mixed Melanin.

The fourth type of melasma has no name and mostly occurs to the people who have a dark complexion.

3. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a type of pigmentation which is temporary and is mostly followed after a skin injury. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is sometimes also referred to as acquired melanosis.

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can occur in any individual but is commonly seen in darker-tone individuals. Those who have acne on their face are most commonly suffering from this type of pigmentation. The treatment for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a long process and sometimes can even take 6-12 months to see the results.


Many factors cause dark patches on the skin but are not considered to be a type of pigmentation.

Medical Procedures for Pigmentation Treatment.

The most common medical treatments for facial pigmentation and hyperpigmentation are Mesotherapy, Chemical Peels and Laser.

The other procedures for treating Hyperpigmentation are:

    1. Lightening Creams
    2. Face acids
    3. Intense pulse light therapy (IPL)
    4. Microdermabrasion

Tips to prevent pigmentation

Dr Syed is one of the most renowned dermatologists providing pigmentation treatment in Delhi.

  • Protect your skin from sun damage:
    1. One important cause of hyperpigmentation is sun exposure. Excessive sun exposure stimulates the production of melanin.
    2. The UV rays from the sun can damage your skin and distort the texture
    3. Stay away from the sun as much as possible when the harmful rays are at their peak- 10 AM to 2 PM.
    4. Sun rays can cause a stretching of the microvasculature- the small blood vessels in the skin and give a mottled appearance.
    5. Use sunscreen whenever you need to go out in the sun.
    6. A broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with SPF 30 or above is generally recommended.
    7. Keep sunscreen a part of your skincare routine. Always keep in mind, you need SPF throughout the year irrespective of the season.
  • Do your best to prevent breakouts:
    1. Apart from sun exposure, pigmentation may also be included after there is an episode of skin inflammation.
    2. Whenever a breakout such as eczema or acne occurs on the skin, it may leave dark patches as the condition subsides.
    3. These areas stay on the surface of the skin as pigmented areas.
  • Hormonal imbalances:
    1. Any hormonal change in the body may also interfere with melanin production such as pregnancy, PCOS etc.
    2. If you have a history or susceptibility to PCOS, make sure to maintain a healthy lifestyle and take the necessary steps to get back your hormones to where they need to be.
  • Be aware of your health status:
    1. Certain medical conditions pertaining to the liver, kidney, or an autoimmune condition may cause skin pigmentation.
    2. Keep a check on your health and go for a periodic health check regularly.
    3. It is important to identify the cause of pigmentation.
