Skin pigmentation: There are various disorders of skin pigmentation. Is there a particular one you are concerned with. There are numerous treatments, not necessarily a "cure" per se for various skin pigmentation disorders. Laser therapy is often helpful for many skin pigmentation disorders. Please see your local dermatologist and/or plastic surgeon to discuss these options!

No: Since we don't know what is causing it, there is no permanent solution. UVB-NB phototherapy may help in some cases.
