I have two dark spots. One under each eye, on the cheek bone. about 2yrs. ago, I used to get my eyebrows waxed and one day I asked the lady if she can wax the few hairs I had on the apple of my cheeks off and she said yes. She did it and when she pulled the paper off on each cheek it really hurt and left me with raw redness area on each side. The next day and on the 2nd day, I had scabs on each area. After the scabs went away (which was ugly to begin with), from that moment on, I've had to battle dark spots ever since then. I am putting a cream called: "Reviva" skin lightener for day fade cream and one for the evening. They are lightening up, specially the left side but the right side is still the most noticeable. Can you recommend additional information on how to get rid of these dark spots? Is there a treatment? Should I go to a dermatologist? Will a face chemical work on this? HELP!!!
