If not, repost your question. Good luck. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
