Thank you for your question. Based on the amount of time that has passed since the treatment you will most likely do well with getting and IPL or laser treatment for this concern. These types of treatments can go much deeper then creams and should break up the pigmentation and even out your skin tone.

You have a very difficult problem and it appears that you have Melasma from the photos.  If bleaching creams and peels and sunscreens did not work then you should look into Cosmelan treatments.  Cosmelan may be able to reduce this pigmentation.  Please consult an expert.  Best, Dr. Green
