I would use Melarase AM and Melarase PM specifically to help improve the color and tone on your legs.

You can use a product that contains 4% hydroquinone.  I have had a great deal of success with the Obagi line of products.

Due to your dark skin , be careful of using laser or IPL to treat hyperpigmentation, as it can get worse.   We use a Q-Switch laser, Spectra, the same one that can remove tattoos, in our clinic, especially for darker sin such as Asian, Middle Eastern, and African Amercians.
