Hello, viewers, I’m Dr Rohit Batra from Derma worlds skin and hair clinic. Today we are going to talk about hyper pigmentation or melasma.
Melasma or Hyper pigmentation is very common in females though it affects males also. You must have seen people having hyper pigmentation or brown or black spots on the face, especially in the butterfly area of the face. That is known as melasma or mask of pregnancy. But though it is known as the mask of pregnancy even unmarried females can have on their face. Pigmentation is a very common thing that is seen in our household, but people are very depressed with the hyper pigmentation on their face. They want to get rid of it.
Today as dermatology is growing by leaps and bounds we have got many things that can help you get rid of pigmentation. We have peels, we have lasers, we have other treatments, topicals, cream etc that if prescribed by a trained experienced dermatologist can do wonders to your skin. So if you are having hyper pigmentation, then is it because of any acne that you had earlier or you are suffering from melasma or be it any sort of hyper pigmentation visit a dermatologist so that he can help you get rid of it. It takes around two to three months in which the hyper pigmentation or the brown or black spots fade away and once you have taken care of it and you apply a sunscreen on a regular basis you can take care of the hyper pigmentation so that it doesn’t come back.
As far as sunscreen is concerned depending on what sort of skin type you have you can either opt for a gel based sunscreen if you have an oily skin or a lotion or cream base if you have a dry skin. Sunscreen needs to be applied half an hour before sun exposure and the effect lasts for one and a half hour so you need to reapply. But you must think if the sunscreen is having just an S.P.F. rating of higher say in the eighties or nineties that doesn’t prevent you from hyper pigmentation. It should be a broad spectrum sunscreen with a UV A and a UV B protection to give you complete protection against the harmful effects of the sun that leads to hyper pigmentation. When talking about peels we have glycolic acid, we have ferulic acid, we have rhetoric acid that are given in peels along with mandelic acid etc in arginine that carefully but surely treats the hyper pigmentation without any side effects. Q switch lasers is used only in resistant areas where all other things like cream, oral medication and peels have failed.
So don’t get depressed, visit us and we can surely help you get rid of hyper pigmentation, marks and melasma on your face.
If you are really worried about the hyper pigmentation marks on your face or body and you want to get rid of them you can either visit us at our lybrate profile or can just drop in for an appointment at our clinic Derma worlds Skin and Hair Clinic, Rajouri Garden, New Delhi.

Acne can be frustrating and annoying. A lot of unnecessary chaos can be avoided if people get the facts right.
1. Myth: Adults do not suffer from acne problems
Truth: While acne outbreaks are common amongst teenagers, adults are not spared either. In adults, the acne problems are essentially of two types; the late onset acne and the persistent acne. In many cases, it has been observed that the acne problems appear at a later period, mostly after 23 to 25 years of age (late onset acne). At other times, the unwanted acne outbreaks that mark its appearance during the teenage years linger for a longer period (persistent acne type).
2. Myth: A person's eating habits and lifestyle has no role to play in acne
Truth: Lifestyle and eating habits can influence a person's health. Excessive intake of sweets and simple carbohydrates can worsen the acne. Stress, fatigue, lack of proper sleep, can also aggravate the already frustrating acne problem.
3. Myth: Acne results from dirty skin, with adult men and women being equally affected
Truth: The Pilosebaceous unit of the skin plays a pivotal role in acne outbreaks. The oil producing gland (Sebaceous gland) of this unit acts as the main control. Certain hormones regulate the activity and size of this gland. An increase in the size of the sebaceous gland results in an increased oil secretion. The skin pores become very sticky. These pores serve as a host, into which the acne causing bacteria, P. acnes multiples.
Adult women are more prone to acne than their male counterparts. This is because, hormonal imbalance or alterations affects adult females more. Women often suffer from acne during menstruation.
4. Myth: Acne can spread from one person to another
Truth: More than often, acne is seen as a contagious dermatological problem. Though caused by the bacteria P. acnes, acne is not contagious. It is rather foolish to maintain a distance from the affected individual.
5. Myth: Acne is a minor problem and needs no medical intervention
Truth: Going for self-medication can do the acne more harm than good. Acne is influenced by a number of internal as well as external factors (stress, hormonal imbalance, unhealthy lifestyle). For an effective treatment, it is important to identify the root cause. It is best to consult a dermatologist at the earliest.
6. Myth: In case of acne, the face should be frequently washed and cleansed
Truth: Ideally, the face should be washed twice daily with a gentle cleanser. Some people get eternal pleasure in squeezing the heads of the spot. This can damage your skin beyond repair.
Do not allow acne problems to affect your self-confidence. Acne can be cured. Do not fall for the baseless myths.
