Dark patches on face. No improvement with peeling, using kojivit. Effective remedy?

I have dark patch on face (cheek) and did two sessions of peeling. Also doctor prescribed Skinlite to apply on affected areas. When I use the cream my dark patches minimise. But doctor cautioned me against using the cream for long period. He has now prescribed Kojivit, but after applying it for more than 10 days no improvement. Pls suggest

hello and welcome to HCM forum,
dark patches on the cheeks is a very common problem nowadays, as you stated that you have applied creams and have also undergone chemical peeling. i would like to inform you that patches take time to disappear completely , so you will have to be patient.
besides peels, we now have lasers(Q-switched, IPL) to treat pigmentation areas, they require atleast 3 sessions, they are painless and very effective.
i would recommend you should visit a dermatologist who perform all these cosmetic procedures with lasers, continue using Kojivit, it has whitening properties and will definitely help to some extent.
Also, start taking oral antioxidants, they have depigmentation properties.
i wish you good health.
