Hi Rienie, thank you for the question and my apologies for the long delay with my answer but I was in Johannesburg training doctors and only arrived in Cape Town last night.
Your best option is to see an aesthetic practitioner or a cosmetic dermatologist who can examine the pigmentation marks and advise you on the best treatment options. A number of possibilities exist including topical products (such as NeoStrata Pigmentation Lightening Gel & Brightening Cream SPF 15), chemical peels, and technology based treatments. One must use a good SPF 30 or higher that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide.
