I have a cream called Tri-Luna that my dermatologist prescribed for some discoloration on my face.
It takes about 8 weeks to work. I actually got lazy about putting it on, even though it was working. It did help, though.

Hi Phillipa,

I use hydroquinone 4% cream. I've heard that the creams that combine hydroquinone and retin-a are very good. I've also had friends who have done chemical peels with excellent results. Good Luck.
