Hi Bee-Bee, thank you for the question.

This is a difficult question to answer over the net as one would need to take an adequate history, examine the skin, and even perform a VISIA skin analysis to determine what the best treatment options are. Furthermore one would need to differentiate between pure sun induced pigmentory damage or Melasma (hormonally induced) as the treatment approaches will differ slightly.
Generally speaking we have had good results with pigmentation using a good SPF (50 or higher) that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide and NeoStrata’s Glycolic acid peels, Depigmenting Cream, Renewal Cream and Brightening Cream or Lumixyl; or using technology based treatments such IPL with Bi-Polar Radiofrequency or fractional skin resurfacing.
