Hyperpigmentation correction with Melarase cream

Looks as though you have hyperpigmented scars. I would begin with topical Melarase cream used twice daily to improve the pigmentation. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles

you can try a hydroquine cream 4% to start with sunscreen to fade the lesion.  Sunscreen on the lesion is very important.
