You could achieve a degree of lightening or fading with the use of Skinceuticals Skin Brightening protocols such as Pigment Regulator, Retinol 0.5 and a broad spectrum sunscreen. I also recommend the use of an antioxidant serum to protect skin during treatments.
This protocol will help to disperse melanin making cells in the skin, exfoliate darkened cells from the skin and protect the skin from UV light stimulating the production of more pigmented cells.
The use of an in clinic treatment such as Skinceuticals Pigment Regulator Peel or Circadia's Mandeliclear peel ( the later is especially suitable for black and Asian skins) will speed up the process.
A period of 4 weeks prep with the above protocol of products must be used before a skin peel on any ethnic skin to achieve a safe reliable result.
Fading of pigmentation can take several months - patience is needed
