I received a ice burn caused by a cold hand roller. My skin is discoloured. How long will it take to fade?

There is no scarring of skin. Texture is fine but there is widespread discoloration that upsetting me. Can I do anything? It happened 4 weeks ago.

Dark scars on the body and face

Dark scars respond well to a combination of Melarase AM, Melarase PM, and Melapads.
