In brief: Topical lighteners

that contain Hydroquinone work well, or agents with licorice or jessner's solution.
If OTC products don't clear your dark spots, consider seeing dermatologist for prescription strength lighteners or possibly laser treaments

In brief: Fractional Laser

Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective, but it's not for everyone and is costly.
Pulsed light treatments, chemical peels and prescription creams are other options.
