How do you get rid of hyperpigmentation?

Go away dark spots. Hyperpigmentation may be caused by chronic inflammation. I al ways imagine that any time there is inflamm, the melanocytes (pigment cells) flock to the area thinking there is a party going on and just dont leave. I like rx hydroquinone and retinoids plus sunscreen. Sunscreen and hats are the most important thing. I love obagi nuderm for this and there are botanicals too but don't work as well.

Depends on the cause. Retin A (tretinoin) will definitely not help & irritate your skin more. If it's from shadows under your eyes & due to sub clinical food allergies, neither will help. Address the cause to reduce the lymphatic congestion. If area is red/brown pigmented, laser can help. If it's from recent scar, you must wait for it to heal. Solaquin Forte 2% won't help, and can hypopigment surrounding skin. (Best 2 see skin Dr.)
