Well, I actually used the Obagi System (including retin-a) and LOVED it! The only cons were about 2 weeks of painful, red, peeling skin.. but my dermatologist warned me about that so I was prepared.

I noticed improvement (reduction/fading of spots) after about 6 weeks and after about 18 weeks, my skin looked fabulous!!

I am wondering if heat can cause Melasma and hyperpigmentation to return. I did 18 weeks of Obagi with great results. My melasma and sun spots were all but gone. I wear sunscreen and hats almost all the time when I'm outdoors but I feel as if my spots are starting to return. So, I'm wondering what type of sunblock is best for being in the pool with the kids, and/or am I fighting a losing battle because getting my face hot (while outside or at the gym) is actually causing my spots to return.

My doctor took the time to explain the procedure to me and was available for my follow up questions!
