    Post HQ BLEACHING CREAMS?

    HAve any of you with darker skin used Hydroquinone bases bleaching creams for dark spots? Did they work, have any negative effects etc? Which ones were the best? I heard neostrata is great. I am however afraid of bleaching more than I want to and leaving white patches! Has anyone experienced this???

    I also have dark skin and tend to hyperpigment from any mark on my face. I have been using a 8 % hydroquinone bleach for some dark spots and it has only been a week but the spots are fading. My derm suggested that I put the cream all over my face and not just on my dark marks. I don't think you can get 8% over the counter and only through a derm.

    Hi,
    You said you use an 8% HQ. WOW! That is strong! Arent the normal prescriptions only 4%?? Anyways, what is it called? I asked my derm for a prescription HQ and he said that those are usually effective for malasma and stuff but not acne spots! WOnt putting it all over your face make your whole face lighter than the rest of you??
