Topical depigmenting agents

What are Topical depigmenting agents?

Topical depigmenting agents work in different ways to inhibit melanogenesis (the pigmentation pathway by which cells produce melanin). Some agents cause reversible depigmentation and some cause irreversible depigmentation. These agents are applied on the skin, on the affected area to treat hyperpigmentation.
