Permanent skin lightening treatments for dark-skinned African Americans?

Is there anything permanent? I am a very dark skin African American woman and have used almost every over the counter lightening crème & soap and nothing brings me close to my desired complexion. I don’t want to have light skin just lighter and I know how I want to look but don't know what would work for my pigment or if anything works at all. I hope it is something permanent as well because I don’t want to go through this the rest of my life. The picture doesn't show how dark I really am but I hope you can get an idea.

I have personally used Esoterica and I can personally tell you that it works. Period. You have to use it consistently for about 4-6 weeks to get dramatic results but people will definitely notice. I used to use it back when I was a young woman and I wanted to be more radiant. I can certainly say it did work. Some people don't like the way it smells but it didn't really bother me. But if you want dramatic result without spending $$$$ of dollars, Esoterica DOES work! I heard Porcelana works too but I tried Esoterica because the late Arthur Ashe's wife was on all the billboards in the bay area advertising it. lol. I am dark brown and I went LIGHT brown in no time. You do have to use it 3 times a day though and all over. So I was serious about my regimen. But again. It definitely did what it claimed. The End.

Duchesslove, I do because I took lots of pics back then. (I weighed 135lbs then and you are going to want to see pics of NOW ALSO right ohh no!! lol) But going thru the trouble of scanning and uploading then posting just to prove my point really? I mean I only joined to answer the question asked when I tried to answer anon but this site wouldn't let me. Either a person believes me or they chose not to. lol. I have no need to lie or to prove anything. I am just replying honestly to a question asked. I don't even use the product anymore. I am sure there are other products that may even work better but I can say that this product worked for me personally. And that is all that I can say about it.

Lumina® is a product that has been formulated to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmented and uneven skin. Its innovative blend of the highest quality ingredients has delivered proven results for fading blemishes, discolored and dark skin. It swiftly reduces melanin in the surface layers of the skin. In as little as a few weeks, skin is visibly lighter and more even. It is a natural product that does not contain many of the potentially harmful and irritating ingredients found in a lot of skin care products, such as hydroquinone, parabens and steroids. This makes Lumina® Skin Whitening Cream a potentially safer and a more viable choice for people with sensitive skin, in particular.
