Depends: It depends on your skin type and what you want to lighten. Hydroquinone is available up to 2% without a prescription, and higher amounts by prescription. Rarely, hydroquinone can cause unwanted darkening of the skin. I would make an appointment with a dermatologist for further evaluation and treatmnet options. I hope this helps. Lana long, M.D.
