I Am a Dark Skinned Woman. How Can I Get Even Skin Tone?

Doctor Answers 2

Lightening skin in skin of color

Avoid lasers as this can cause a rebound in pigmentation in some people. See a dermatologist to evaluate a topical therapy program while practicing safe sun techniques.

Retinoids at night and sunscreens in the day

Talk to a board certified dermatologist. I would avoid bleaching agents and stick to a good brightening/exfoliation program. Daily sun protection is a must!
