Is there a way to cosmetically lighten nipple/areola that's darkened after pregnancy?

My nipples were fairly light before pregnancy and have darkened a lot with pregnancy. The lightened a few shades after stopping breastfeeding but not nearly the shade they used to be. I used a skin lightener for a month 2x a day with no change. Is there a way to go and have your areola lightened cosmetically?
