Hyperpigmentation

I have a slightly darker mark on my check which gets more darker if I step into the sun. I had consulted with a doctor and he said it was the problem with hyper pigmentation.  He was unable to give any permanently solution though.

Is there any way to remove the hyper pigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is not harmful and is usually not a sign of any serious medical condition. In some cases, darkened areas of the skin fade on their own without treatment. In others, hyperpigmentation fades with treatment. Even if treatment is not able to completely reverse hyperpigmentation, it may improve the condition.
Topical prescription medication can treat some cases of hyperpigmentation. This medication usually contains hydroquinone, which bleaches the skin. The medication can take a few months to reduce areas of hyperpigmentation...
