I just got ahold of some hydroquinone cream for the spot on my arm and was wondering if this solution will be permanent... Will it look natural without the mark?

NO, but laser treatment may work-read more.
A solution for brown birth marks is laser- newer lasers such as Syneron 1064 QSL maybe a better treatment than the current nano/pico second lasers- time will tell.

Hydroquinone for Birthmarks
Unfortunately, nothing we know of except surgical removal will result in permanent removal of your birthmark. Hydroquinone may lighten it for the period you are using the product and lasers may cause it to fade long term (perhaps even permanently), but there is no guarantee with any method except surgery that your birthmark will not return.
