Hi Nomande, thank you for the question.

Your best option would be to consult a dermatologist who can examine the skin and advise you on the best treatment options.

One may need to treat the ‘spots’ first before the pigmentation is tackled; a number of lasers are safe to use however this can only be decided once an adequate medical history has been taken and a thorough examination of the skin has been performed.
