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.

Have you ever try Royale products? They have lots of soap, lightening cream and capsule like L GLUTA POWER that that inhibits the enzyme to manufacture melanin, pigment responsible for the brown colour of the skin.

Your skin looks lovely. You don't need to change a thing. I'm at the other end of the spectrum. I come from Irish ancestry & I am very pale. I've learned to like being this way. Chocolate brown skin is beautiful.

Well, might not be the most relevant answer, however I can say that I had great success with anal bleaching using a product called Hollywood Bleach that I found on eBay. I was able to get very dark skin many shades lighter within 6 weeks. Good Luck!

Hi Natasha, Try HYDROQUINONE CREAM 20%...from Isis cosmetics. That worked for me took 90 days to see and notice the difference. I use nothing else on my skin except that. I'm African American as well.
