Please help! Stained face from mixing hydroquinone and benzoyl peroxide

If anyone could help me I’d greatly appreciate it!!! I’ve used benzoyl peroxide for acne for years now. A few months back I purchased ambi fade cream which contains hydroquinone. I applied the hydroquinone to a small mark on my face to try and fade it but I already had benzoyl peroxide cream on my face and now I have a stained circle of reddish/pink on my face. It’s been a few months now and it still hasn’t gone away. I’ve been using a vitamin c dark spot corrector for about a week now and I’m considering getting it lasered from a dermatologist. Would a laser help?? Please any help anyone can provide I’d appreciate it, it’s driving me insane and making me self conscious.
