It is possible: Epiduo contains Adapalene and benzoyl peroxide. Adapalene is a third generation retinoid and as such can cause some mild lightening of the skin.

I have acne and dark spots on my face.I tried lemon to remove dark spots.I am using neutrogena acne free facewash.How to remove pimples and darkspots?
Scientific Rx: I'm sorry you were misled by the foolish business with the lemon, which is worthless. You're a grown man and need to take charge of your acne. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated (try 5% 2x/day) hasn't cleared the pimples in 2 weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength rx. The post-inflammatory pigment fades on its on after several weeks, or try hydroquinone sparingly. ...Read more

My acne imprve frm tretinoin & clindamycin now iam using hydroquinone 2% for acne marks my face kinda pale using it but no iritation?
Keep working: I'm glad this combination (with retin a, (tretinoin) i see) has given you a good result. Stop using the hydroquinine. You're more likely to make yourself look bad and the brown marks fade in a few months. Nobody cares about them. Keep managing your disease until it self-cures -- mine did at age 50. Enjoy being young, stay fit, focus on learning career skills, and again, nobody cares about your brown marks. ...Read more
