    I used this medication to rid myself of spots caused by acne and it left my skin with bright white spots and dark brown spots..it's awful! I look worse than before and it has take me countless, expensive laser treatments to try and correct them. I strongly discourage this medication.

    I am a fair skinned african american female. I suffer with acne and have very dark spots on my face. This medicine works miracles, I wish I could post a before and after pic because I've only been using for a full month and my skin is 80% cured. I have a few spots that need to clear but I'm sure by next month my skin will be flawless. I would recommend this product to everyone

    I am a light complexioned black woman who was left with skin discoloration from laser hair removal treatment on my chin which did not work well for me at all and also left slight scarring. I stopped the treatments after the third visit. I decided to try 2%hydroquinone to restore my skin color. I expected to see results in about a month. To my surprise I could see results with in the first week. ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    My Dr. told me to use this up to 12 weeks, well, I have only been using it for a week so it is hard to say what it will be like after 12, I am impatient normally, so, so far, not too happy, but I trust my Dr. and believe that it will work to the best of its ability the longer I use it. Besides, he gave me a more aggressive prescription with some Retin-A in it also if I am not happy with this..
