Hi Vaibhavi,
the pigmentation and darkrning around your chin is probably due to tweezing or plucking of your hair. Hair plucking at times lead to minor trauma that finally heals with pigmentation. So kindly avoid plucking hair. You can go with laser hair reduction. Depending on your hair thickness and hair density, laser sessions can be planned. Nd yag lasers or diode lasers or even IPL can be used for the same. However always remember lasers lead to reduction never 100% removal of hair. So maintenance sessions are required later on. Femilon will only aid in hair reduction if it is due to some hormonal derangement. The pigmentation around your chin can be taken care with glycolic acid or hydroquinone based creams. Take care
