I had a few brown spots on my both cheeks 4yrs ago as well, so i had Vipeel, & ended up w/ 70% brown spots/patches. so within 2 weeks of searching for a derm who can fix me I drove myself to Obagi in Beverly Hills. He put me on Nu Derm treatment for 5 mo., within 2 wks into treatment all the brown spots/patches were gone. since then i've on a maintanace program. however my dilema started 2 wks ago after reading all these articles about Hydroquinone, especially prolonged usage, now that i am worried sick that what would happen to my skin in the future, i've been searching for alternative treatment like laser, so i called Celibre laser/dermatology in Irvine, & was told that they dont recommend laser on Asian skin due to PIH, also was told that in Asia the reason they treat hyperpigmentation w/ laser b/c HQ is banned due to excessive usage not supervised by doctors... so I dont have any other alternative options at the moment. i'd have to use HQ for 3 mo then stop for 1 mo something like that... that is how they prescribe it to their patients at Celibre...
