Avoid lasers as this can cause a rebound in pigmentation in some people. See a dermatologist to evaluate a topical therapy program while practicing safe sun techniques.

Talk to a board certified dermatologist. I would avoid bleaching agents and stick to a good brightening/exfoliation program. Daily sun protection is a must!
