Products are the most important step for your skin. You need to start using active skin care to help with cell turn over and normalising the pigment. I recommend starting; vitamin A serum, vitamin B serum, a pigment inhibiting serum and a 50+ SPF.
Once you have been using products for a month and your skin is prepped with the pigment inhibiting serum, I recommend starting Q-Switch laser facials at 3-4 weekly intervals to help break up the pigment in the skin. Later down the track you could look into alternating micro-needling with radio frequency treatments and peels to help reduce the congestion, improve the skin texture and brighten your skin tone.

This would be best treated with Infini and good skin care. Retin A and hydroquinone is needed. Chemical peels might also help. Several treatments with the Infini are needed for best results.
