Hi Anitha,
Welcome to Healthcare magic.
Dark patches on your face is seems a skin disease Known as Melasma.
Ultraviolet light and Hormone contraceptives are the most influencing factor of this condition.
You can visit a dermatosurgery centre where Chemical peel, Intense pulsed light and Laser surgery are available. Then you and your dermatologist will able to choice the right option you need to 'get rid of it fast'.
