Which cream should I apply for speedy recovery of hyper pigmentation ?

I m suffering with hyper pigmentation. Currently I m using a cream with the following composition. Alpha Arbutin - 1% Phenyl Ethyl Resorcinol - 0.5% Lactokine Fluid - 1% MBBT - 6% Octyl Methoxy Cinnamate - 7.5% I have several brown and dark shades around my eyes and on the forehead. Is this dosage enough or is there any better composition that could work faster? And on the tube of the cream that I use it wasmentioned use it two times a day. But some advised me to use it to use it in the evening and use a sunscreen in the morning. Will it be helpful?

Hi..Srinivas Narne.,
Thanks for choosing HCM.,
Speedy recovery of Hyperpigmentaion is not possible..,
Minimum, it will take 28 days..,
1) Frequent washes with Moisturizing soap.,
2) Morning apply SUNSCREEN LOTION with SPF 50..,
3) Night appliction of KOJIC CREAM....contains Kojic, Azeloglicina, Lacrtokine.,
4) If you want quick relief go for CHEMICAL PEELING......
Glycolic acid will do by Trained good dermatologist.....,
ok....good luck.,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
you are on right path
cream contain enough to remove pigmenatation
it is better to apply it twice a day
sunscreen to be apply twice a day and 20 min before going outside
so apply your cream morning after bath and then sunscreen over it
it will take time to remove your spot

Dear patient,
As per your description you have dark circles around eyes & also have pigmentation over forehead.The visible effect of depigmeted creams(you are using) is only after 6-8 weeks, so donot be panic.For under eye dark circles alongwith depigmented creams I also advice some exercises.For speedy improvement of forehed pigmentation you can use a triple combination cream once at neight.In the last but not the least I would suggest you to consult your local Dermatologist.
