Hello. Skin shine and many other over the counter fairness creams use steroids for their gain. These creams do give immediate results, but make you dependent on them and on prolonged use causes many side effects like skin thinning and blemishes etc. Avoiding such creams is the best thing what you can do without any prescription. Its better you go for a personal consultation with a skin specialist and then to decide. U can consult me with the pics as well.

Hello, There are various treatment for pigmentation. From creams containing hydroquinone to milder ones of Kojic acid, niacinamide, arbutin. There is options of glutathione injections to oral tablets with vitamin C, also laser toning also gives good results. You can start initially on milder depigmentation creams which contain kojic acid, arbutin, niacinamide like Melaglow at night and use sunscreen three times a day. Suncreen needs to be used atleast once a day if staying indoors as there is UV light exposure even from artificial light. The suncreen we recommend is Faceguard it is non oily and matte finish and good even for sensitive skin. And depending on type of skin whether oily or dry you can choose a face wash. It need examination and personalized plan. You can consult in private with photographs.

Laser toning using Q switch NdYag laser is an option but results variable. You may need 6-8 sessions at 3 weeks gap. It may cost 2-4 thousand per session. Consult a dermatologist.

There can be several causes why your skin would turn dark or you may get pigmentation. Sun tan, overweight, pigmentation disorders like acanthosis nigricans or melasma, nutritional deficiency etc are some conditions. Unless someone examines you, we can not know the cause. Unless we find out the cause it is difficult and pointless to treat. Please call me or send photos with detailed history using online consult option for examination and proper treatment.

Hello. The black patches or blotching what we call over the mouth occurs due to various reasons, most of them which will be your regular habits. If you avoid those habits and give a proper treatment with skin lightening agent and sun protection, definitely you can have better lips within the time you mentioned. You can text me directly so that we can know more about the reason for such occurence and treat accordingly.

Hello. One week is too short for any sort of proper skin treatment. For this short duration you could try carbon laser peel or Hollywood peel which uses Qswitch laser which has no down time and can give you some result in this short duration.
