Hello. I am part native american and part african american and the skin color I have as a result is about Beyonce's skin color at the darkest (during the summer when I tan) and Rihanna's skin color at the lightest during the winter. However, I have not liked my skin color for years and would like to permanently depigment it. For example, becoming Dita Von Teese or Nicole Kidman's color. The only chemical that I know of which can do this is monobenzone. I would like to use monobenzone even though I do not have vitiligo. So I have a few questions.

1) Will a dermatologist prescribe monobenzone to me if I ask for it, even though I do not have vitiligo? Or will they refuse to prescribe it to me because my skin is normal?

2) Is there a way to smoothly transition from dark to light, rather than having the skin look patchy during the transition phase?

Thank you. And PLEASE nobody give me a lecture about learning to love my skin color as it is...I have thought about this for years and I know what I want. Thanks.
