In brief: Dark blemishes

older people who get a lot of sun, get dark marks on their face, arms and hand.
They can be treated by avoiding the sun, and by trying to lighten the dark areas. Use a sun blocker every day, and use a peeling agent like glycolic acid or retin a, (tretinoin) and then use the hydroquinone only on the dark spots every night. The 4% is better, but requires a prescription.
