There are many hydroquinone alternatives such as Vitamin C, licorice based, or Retinol products to lighten the skin. Please consult a dermatologist who is familiar with cosmetics for the best results. Fraxel and Clear & Brilliant both help reduce the pigmentation along with chemical peels. Best, Dr. Green
