Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi.
As per your case history of facial hyperpigmentation, my treatment advice is -
1. Avoid sun exposure and use a good sunscreen lotion with spf more than 30.
2. Take a vitamin b12 supplement once daily for 3 months.
3. Apply a kojic acid cream like kojivit twice daily on dark skin.
4. Other treatment options are topical glycolic acid, lactic acid or chemical peeling done by dermatologist.

Thanks.
