Rebecca Treston, Founder of Rebecca Treston Method discusses the best way to treat hyperpigmentation

Many people suffer from hyperpigmentation. This discolouration can arise from post-acne marks; melasma from going through the menopause, pregnancy or taking contraception; and age spots or freckles caused by UV exposure. When it comes to skincare, the most important thing to remember is to never throw your skin off balance by using harsh products, as this can disrupt the skin’s pH balance. So be sure to avoid stripping cleansers and use moisturisers that contain hyaluronic acid.

If you want a flawless complexion, then be sure to see an experienced professional to help you. By combining skincare and the right treatments such as laser toning with a Q switch or PICO technology to shatter and fragment pigments with an acoustic energy that is best suitable to the condition you have. One word of advice – avoid IPL and needling treatments as they can actually cause exacerbate the problem rather than solving it.
