Yes! If untreated, the dark spots on your skin an get worse and the longer you wait to start treating them, the more difficult it could be to rid your skin of them.
Unfortunately, everyone’s skin is different. Some will see fading of the spots in a few weeks, others it may take a few months. The age of the pigment and the type of pigmentation play a large factor in determining your treatment.

See a licensed professional and use professional-grade skincare products that have ingredients to treat pigmentation. While treating hyperpigmentation, wearing a high SPF sun protection to avoid further damage from the sun, is a must.
That all depends on you and a few other factors. Aging, hormone changes and UV exposure can stimulate new hyperpigmentation. The first step will be to limit sun extended times in the sun and wear SPF every day. The rest is up to Mother Nature.
