How Can I Lighten the Dark-toned Skin Above my Upper Lip?

I received a few laser hair removal treatments on my upper lip and afterwards noticed my skin darkening there. I'm worried that from far away, people will think I have a moustache.

How can I lighten the tone of my skin in that area? I already stopped the laser hair treatments. I am white and have a pretty light complexion. Thanks.

Melaquin for upper lip hyperpigmentation

Upper lip pigmentation is caused by melasma and can be worsened with laser in some cases.  I would advise you to begin the Melaquin skin lightening creams twice daily to improve the color
