Avatar n tn I would like to know if there are any recommendations to fade it naturally or any over-the-counter products I can use, or ideally, if there is a permanent solution, i.e. safe laser removal or prescription medicine.

Also, is there anything I should be concerned about, such as skin cancer since this has stayed dark for the past couple of years, sun or no sun? I appreciate your help. Thanks!

Avatar n tn The treatments vary from melanin blocking agents combined with topical medications such as Retin A which causes the body to exfoliate the skin to rid the body of the hyperpigmentation while prohibiting new melanin production to laser treatments. The treatments wholly depend upon your needs and skin type. For standard non-hormone induced hyperpigmentations Hydroquinone usually reduces or removes hyperpigmentations very effectively. It is a bleaching agent.
