Ambi is good: As long as the ambi is hydroquinone in it. It can work for evening skin tone. But, for more complete results you would need a prescription strength bleaching agent.

A few things: I've been treating uneven skin tone for over 20 years the best treatment in my experience is a combination of topicals including tretinoin and hydroquinone, followed by a deep chemical peels. I think lasers overpromise and undeliver when it comes to skin tone. Restoring healthy skin will correct the color problem. See a plastic surgeon who loves skin care or a dermatologist. Ask to see their pics.

Uneven sun exposure: Normal skin responses to sunlight exposure--more exposure, it gets darker by producing more melanin. Thus areas covered by clothing is always lighter. Arms typically remain darkest parts of body. Private areas are often lightest because they are under covers most of time (for most of us anyway :-)). I am not sure if this is what u are asking. If not, repost your question. Good luck.

Many options: There are many options to improve skin tone. For example, a retinoid (tazorac, differin, retin a (tretinoin) micro etc). I will often combine this with a prescription hydroquinone (a bleaching cream). In addition chemical peels, microdermabrasion, photofacials, laser, ipl, etc are all additional therapeutic modalities. See a board certified dermatologist that can asses your skin and prescribe whats needed.

See derm: Some times Retin A/ Retinoids can bring balance to skin. They come in different strengths. Your dermatologist can assess to develop a regimen that is specifically tailored for you.

Sunscreen, argan oil: First, you should always wear sunscreen. Second, moisturize twice daily with argan oil, you only need a few drops. Finally, see your primary care doctor or dermatologist to make sure there isn't something treatable going on. Good luck.
