I am Indian and have hyperpigmentation on my upper face (cheeks, eye area, forehead. and nose). Can anyone recommend to me a doctor who can advise me on hyperpigmentation treatments, like non-ablative laser treatments? Thank you!

Hyperpigmentation and melasma treatment
Hyperpigmentation results from a number of causes, including hormones, the sun, genetics, chronic inflammation, allergies, and heat. In this particular case, I would treat the skin with a regimented depigmentation protocol employing a combination of skin lighteners, retinoids, and a Radiant TCA peel.
