Searching for Long-term Hyperpigmentation Solution - Jessner's Isn't It

The Jessner's peel is one of many treatments I've had for hyperpigmentation and Adult onset acne. It burned my skin around my nose and mouth and was NOT supposed to do that. I've also had glycolic peels and microdermabrasion.
I need/want a long term plan that I can use successfully. I'm grasping at different companies and procedures, spending 1000's of dollars for what seem to be short term fixes. I used Obagi successfully for a time, but then seemed to lose its potency. I've tried Caudalie. Not seen dramatic changes either. Used hydroquonine and Retin-A in conjunction; works for a time and then burns after a while.
I also use Dermalogica Sun Booster under my make up and with my foundation, plus my foundation has SPF30. Though, as everyone stated, the brown spots WILL return. I have been contemplating IPL for the melasma on my cheeks and the brown patches (recent) on my nose.Any advice as to how to streamline my never ending search to the RIGHT procedures and products? Thanks so much.
