i have pigmentation on my body also, i dnt knw how that ocurred.. my stomach and back has two/three shades of brown.. i also have scar marks on my stomach due to laser hair removal treatment going wrong..

i have tried aburtin - no change

Hi sam xx, yes there is some peeling, but it's not painful. Once you start a treatment you need to remember a high sunblock as well as to keep out of the sun as much as possible. I too have tried the bio oil without any success. I think, from what I read the HQ you be your best bet. And there plenty of people on this site, who can walk you threw it.

No, I'm not using either as it is I'm ghostly white- so white you can see my veins through my skin. ( not too pretty!) But if you start to read through some of the skin lightening threads I'm positive you will find some answers to your questions.

Hi there Samxx. That was a nice intro. No need to apologize for the long read: we are all a literate bunch here. It was helpful knowing what you've tried in the past & what results you got. The HQ/RA sounds ideal for the evening out you are seeking. Begin by focusing on the dark discoloured areas. Work on them 2x/day until they are blended & your skin is even. This alone might be such a positive & flattering difference that you won't need any further lightening. Once you're all even toned, you can decide what to do from there.

Are the laser scars hyper or hypo-pigmented? In other words did they lose colour or darken? I had some on my leg and I used HQ and it worked well. The downside is you need to be very specific to the spots.
