Treatments That Can Actually Lighten Skin Color

In general, skin lightening pills do not work, and are a waste of money. However, there are treatments like hydroquinone, lytera, and intravenous tranexamic acid that can actually cause skin to lighten. You should consult a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to learn about whether one or more of these products may be able to help you achieve your goals.
