Thank you for your question. Glycolic acid is an exfoliator and can be used to slowly remove hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin). It may take a few months for you to notice any results in terms of lightening your skin color. Be certain to be under the supervision of a board certified dermatologist for the most effective and safe treatment options. I hope this helps.
