Customer Question


I had very slight upper hair lip which wasnt even that noticeable. My sister said i should get my upper lip hair threaded before my wedding so i did. To my dismay.. 6 months later you can really see a dark shadow on my upper lip and this has been like this for at least a year now and i've sadly lost my self confidence.

The result is that i now can not go a day without applying concealer and make up, whereas before i was more natural.. This situation is driving me crazy and spoling my experience as a newly maried couple. Can Dermatology get rid of this shadow?

Many thanks for your help

Yes most likely this can be removed with prescription creams.


Dermatology should be able to do this.


It depends on how much hyperpigmentation there is, but there are different strengths of creams; hydroquinone is one.



It should be used only under supervision.
