What can I do about my hyperpigmentation all over my legs? (photos)

I've had hyperpigmentation ever since I can remember when I was growing up I never wore shorts or skirts bec it was so embarrassing it's mostly on the back of my legs and my inner thighs and I have some scars from when I was younger that are still on my skin. My knees are really dark too. I have patches of discoloration around my knees too. What's the fastest way to get rid of this. Which laser treatment works best on African American skin with caramel like complexion?

You need to see a cosmetic dermatologist who specializes in treating skin pigmentation.  A combination approach will be best. I suggest: peels, lasers, microneedling/prp and topical bleaching agents. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
