Hi, I was a acne sufferer, but I pretty much have it under control now. My problem is all the brown marks left from my acne. I heard things like kojic acid, hydroquinone, retinol-a, green tea, and among other things help aid brown marks. I wanted to know if there was anyone out there that had the same problem and found any success with anything. I know hyperpigmentation is a difficult problem to cure, but if anyone could help that would be great.

I found that a combination of .01% retin-a and 2% hydroquinone (Obagi Blender, I think) cleared my PIH in about 2 weeks. Also, did you try prescription hydroquinone? I'm on 4% hydroquinone for fraxel prep and it is also helping a lot with my PIH. Maybe my skin just responds well to hydroquinone...
