Pigment in the skin can be excessive causing freckling, large brown spots or patchy melasma. Hydroxyquinone is often used to reduce the amount of pigment laid down when new basal skin cells are created, slowly reducing unwanted brown spots over 3-4 weeks. AHAs can assist this, as can glycolic or Kojik acid. Laser treatments may be required for control.
