PCOD resulting in pigmentation on both cheeks. Used Melacare. Having darker pigmentation. Continue with Melacare?

I am 27, had PCOD problem that resulted in mild pigmentation on both the cheeks. As per the Doctor, used Melacare for a month now, used only during night time. Results were amazing making my skin fair, glowing and pigmentation completey faded away. Hence stoppped using Melacare since a week, now skin has become dull, pigmentation is back, skin is darker than before. Doctor told to use Melacare at night and Sunscreen during the day. Since I am at home, didnot use any sunscreen lotions, was this a miss? I feel so bad because Initial results were good, after I stopped using Melacare, its horrible. I dont want to get addicted to Melacare, because I am getting married in six months now. Please advise if I should use Melacare at night and Sunscreen during the day, will it help to fade away the pigmentation, if yes then whats the during I should continue or should I go for some chemical peels from Beauty Clinics like, VLCC, Kosmaderma, Vcare, Anu s etc. Please answer in detail.

Hi Pinky,
Thanks for writing in.
Chemical peel will be very much effective for melasma treatment.
Using melacare is not advisable as it contains mometasone ,a steroid which can be harmful for facial skin.
Use good quality sunscreen during day.
You can undergo chemical peeling at any good skin clinic.
Hope this helps.
