Dark circles around the eyes, pigmentation on the cheeks. Prescribed with flutivate cream. Is it safe?

hello doctor! I have dark circles around my eyes especially towards the T point .I have tried various cosmetic lotions but to no result.I also have pigmentation on the sides of my cheek which are hereditary.I recently met a doctor at a party who suggested i use FLUTIVATE on these areas.But he was a little casual so i wanted to confirm! I also have oily skin and get periods during PMS which almost get clear by the time next one is due!! But they have left ugly scars on my chin which is a big bother! please help.

hi flutivate can be applied on the dark spots on the face only for short time if applied prolonged there is a chance of getting pimples and atrophy of the skin.hence use melaglow cream in the night for both the dark circles and dark pigmentation due to acne.u can also try triglow or kojivit for these spots.if dark circles are not subsided go for chemical peels with azalic acid or mandelic acid.if still there go for laser treatment
