Use creams containing (tretinoin,Mometasone & hydroquinone formula). It should be applied daily at night for first 2 months. Sun protection is highly recommended especially on areas of dark spot.Else darkness will persist despite application of creams.After this if any residual marks are left, you can apply creams containing Kojic or Azelaic for another 1 month.
