Hon, you can't ever really 'get rid' of melasma, but you can treat it, and get it to clear-up; how much depends on your individual condition and your treatment options. And that will help the look of it to be more manageable / normal-looking. I not going to re-post my post from above, but several of the treatments I mentioned will help you - they've helped me clear it up nearly 97%. And Honey, mine was so bad that the doctors at Cornell (yes, Cornell the burn experts) took pictures! It's a condition that requires diligence, courage, and self-respect - **** those people who do something degenerate-like or have something negative to say!
But one of the most important things I can say is, don't try to overcompensate for how your skin looks now, by trying to make it perfect. I'd always had great skin until I used a cheap otc product that ruined it. But even though my skin had been great, it still wasn't prefect. Over the 14 years that I have struggled with this, I can tell you its critical that you remember what your skin looked like before look at pictures or whatever so that you won't get caught-up in trying to make it perfect. It's important to only treat the issue of the melasma, or the subsequent issues it has caused - don't try to re-write history in order to try and create 'magazine face'. I don't know the severity of your condition but again chemical peels are awesome. You will also need to use a steroid cream; like Locoid Cream, to calm potential issues from the peels. You also need hydroquinone; start low w/ a 4% - it may cause irritation, but that's why you'll use the steroid cream. However you know your skin so...
All-in-all its trial an error. But don't give up! The best to you!
