I used to take treatments for facial hair removal using a laser, microdermabrasion, and chemical peeling. I did these treatments before two years. My skin has become worse now. I have more dead cells in my skin, and I have darker looking skin. Even my lips have turned dark. My entire upper lip is black. I do not know the reason behind this problem. Do I have this problem due to the laser treatment or due to hormonal imbalance?
I am taking medication for thyroid, which is normal now. I am taking Metformin for hormone regulation. I have facial hairs, and it grows faster. I have facial hair above the lips and chin. I use a razor to clear it. Please prescribe me ointments or creams to reduce the problem.

You are having hormonal issues. It could be the reason for having pigmentation and excess hair growth. Please mention about the steps taken to maintain the skin. Please send the images of the darkened portion of the skin. I can suggest some remedies after looking at the present condition.
Thank you doctor,
I have sent the photos of my chin and my lips in a clear view. I am not applying any specific creams. I am using moisturizer and sunscreen. But I am not using it continuously. My skin becomes dry after I have a bath. My skin does not look hydrated. But I usually drink plenty of water. I have lost my freshness in my skin. Please prescribe some ointments to have better-looking skin.

I have gone through the attachment (attachment removed to protect patient identity). You have a condition called seborrheic melanosis. Please mention whether you have dandruff or not. You can use Hydrocortisone cream twice daily for ten days around the lips. Start using Nizoral shampoo (Ketoconazole) weekly twice for hair wash. Apply Aveeno cream (Dimethicone with Cetyl alcohol) at night for ten days. Try to take Brevoxyl (Benzoyl peroxide 4 %) creamy face wash once a day.
