Q switched laser can be very helpful for lip pigmentation.

The Q-switched laser can be very helpful for dark sun related patches on the lips. And these do turn dark after laser treatment for a week or so, until they crust and fall off. It's critical to make the right diagnosis first though, as conditions like melanoma can appear like this. See your dermatologist!
