Be careful with Retin A it works wonders for some people but I had an adverse reaction and ended up with horrible acne for some time and I am now left with scars. Make sure it's the best option.. get a couple of doctors opinions before you jump into anything. Hope it gets better very soon for you!

Firstly, wear a high SPF facial sunscreen EVERY DAY whether you use RA or not. Sunlight will make the marks darker otherwise, since melanin is produced on sun exposure.

You can try RA to speed up cell turnover, or Azelaic Acid - it's a tyrosinase inhibitor, which reduces synthesis of melanin. Let me stress again, wear a high SPF facial sunscreen every day.
