- Question: hello, Im a 26 years old woman ,I have brown spots on my upper lip due to the abuse use of electrolysis on my upper lip and chin,my doc prescribed me a 2% hydroquinone and Im on it since 4 months now and it had lightened up already in a good rate,my question is I've heared that those dark spot might come back after disconnecting hydroquinone even with the sunscreen,is that true?and how long should I keep using hydroquinone?thanks alot
It is true that the pigmentation can come back after use of the hydroquinone and if sun exposure occurs. However keep in mind that this is not always the case. To keep pigmentation to a minimum continue to use a lightening product, but one that is not as aggressive as hydroquinone such as CosMedix Lightning MD 6%. Best skin care wishes.
