  1. You need to check for the cause rather than treating a symptom..
    Focal hyper pigmentation can be caused by hormonal imbalance, so get your progesterone AND estrogen levels checked

  2. Hi
    You can get vitamin c ampoule and use it subdermal or superficial, it can be really effective (use superficial for large areas) and it almost cost nothing
    Good Luck

  3. Hi..
    Thanks for the query..

    As per your complain dark discolouration of face can occur due to a number of causes out of which common ones are sun exposure, side effects of any skin cosmetics, allergic reactions while can also occur due to causes like Acanthosis Nigricans, intake of oral contraceptive pills, thyroid disorders, stress,freckles, hemocromatosis [increased iron content in body] etc..
    Consult a Dermatologist and get evaluated..
    A thorough clinical examination and investigations like complete blood picture, hormonal assy etc
    can help in diagnosis and treating the underlying cause can resolve the symptoms..
    Hyperpigmentation caused due to excessive melanin formation can be treated with depigmentation creams like those containing Kojic acid, glycolic acid, Vitamin E..
    Grapessed extract, licorice etc can help..
    Using depigmenting facewash like those containing Salicylic acid and glycolic acid can help..
    Treatments like Microdermabrasion and chemical peeling will help..
    But if it is due to any underlying disorder treatment of the same has to be preceded following the
    depigmentation treatment..

    Hope this information helps
