Facial hair on upper lip. Used astrigent before using herbal remover. What are marks on face?

I have facial hair on upper lip(not very evident). So i use to bleach if i have any parties. I used to go for herbal products all the time.It was working out fine. But i had to move to bangalore and i could not find any herbal products in my area. I gave a try on vlcc bleach(It was labelled herbal). Just before using it i had rubbed my face with a normal astringent . I made the mistake of applying the bleach after the astringent (though i waited for half an hour after washing the face of astringent, before applying the bleach). I never bleach my whole face. I use it just for only upper lips . I am aware it has chemicals and is bad for the skin. The part i had applied the bleach was slightly burning. I waited for 2 mintured, the burning never reduced. So washed it immediately.I could see a dark black patch on the whole area where i had applied the bleach. started to panic seeing a dark black patch on the skin, took olive oil and massaged the place really well. I would say it had reduced the darkness. But is not gone fully. I have been to all the dermatologist lately and no creams seems to work wonders. Tried Eslite-15 cream, aloe vera . I applied indhulekha skin oil every night for the past 6 months. It lightens very slightly if i apply everyday. if i dont apply for 1 day, it will slightly darken the next day. i dont want to apply some oil everyday throughout my life. now i have stopped applying the oil, and the mark is again as it was before 6 months. Am so tired of seeing these marks on my face Please please please help me. I dont really know what is to be done. Can you please help me.I just want a flawless skin. Would be very thankful for your reply.

There are different options for hair removal like Electrolysis, Vaniqa, waxing and of the most recent treatment includes laser.Astringents might not be advisable.However excess upper lip hair maybe secondary to medical conditions.So I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get his opinion.Hope this helps.Take care.
