Hello and welcome to healthcaremagic

I would suggest that you also use a broad spectrum sunscreen, that which offers both UV B and UV A protection, throughout the day as well, apart from using the skin lightening therapy. Kojic acid, glycolic acid based creams are most effective if you also use a sunscreen along with them.

You could go in for chemical peeling sessions from a dermatologist e.g glycolic peel, lactic acid peel, yellow peel(retinol peel) etc along with topical skin lightening creams
