A face-to-face exam is needed for complex scar and pigmentation problems because photos rarely show how they really are. I have had excellent results with the Obagi Nuderm line or variants of it which combined glycolics, hydroquinone and tretinoin. It takes time and patience to get a good result but people who stick with the program are truly happy. It improves melasma, acne scars and sun damage. Best wishes.
