Hi Dr. Nadria,
My name is john. I am from Korea. Since I came here, my skin is been getting darker. What should I do to whiten my skin? Does it require a surgery to whiten my skin? And what products will help my skin become whiter? Thank you!
Asians are at a high risk of hyperpigmentation. The proper treatment includes at home skin care regimen using Retin-A and Hydroquinone as well as medical in office treatments with microdermabrasion and very superficial chemical peels. Any aggressive peels or lasers can make the hyperpigmentation worse. There are other options as well. You should not follow this advice without seeing a doctor to be examined first. This is just a general bit of information.
