Hyperpigmentation: Q&AAsk a Question
Hydroquinone Worsened Hyperpigmentation Above Upper Lip
I had microdermabrasion done last year & less than 8 hours later I bleached my upper lip with hair cream bleach for sensitive skin. Two months later I noticed hyper pigmentation above my upper lip. Last week I got 5% prescription strength Hydroquinone from my Dermatologis. My upper lip became irritated & started to darken. The pigmentation is darker. I avoid the sun & wear a high factor sun block. The hydroquinone solution consists of: Hydroquinone, Procutan, Ascorbic Acid & Nutraderm.
