Question about Melasma on Upper Lip?

I'm a 45 year old female. Was on the pill for 6 years. Stopped pill 6 months ago. I have melasma on my forearms. Mild melasma above my upper lip Is there still a chance Melasma will fade more? Wear mineral based sunscreen daily. Also have mild rosacea on my cheeks so hesitant about bleaching creams. I use 15 pct finacea for my Rosacea. I read its also a lightening agent. Will it help the melisma above my lip? Going to Derm next week but want other opinions. Thx

Our office recommends a strong protocol for melasma which includes exfoliation, chemical peels, and topical Melarase creams.
