hi, thanks for posting your query

dark skin around the waist can be due to tight clothing around the waist .
you have not specified the area and extent and duration of pigmentation
The following may help:
depigmenting creams containing hydroquinone 4%, tretinoin, momatosone twice a day
TCA or glycolic peels
micro dermabration
laser therapy
This will also help to give smooth and even skin
Hope this helps you
