It sounds like you may have melasma on your top lip. We treat melasma quite a lot. It is a common pigmentation problem that requires special care and attention. It tends to recur very easily, and maintenance of results is as important as treatment. Sunscreen, and lightening lotions make up the mainstay of the treatment, but lasers can also speed removal.
