I've tried it for sun damage and it does help!! But since I;m still on the pill it seems to come back after a while. Does that mean that I have to continue using this creme or get off the pill?? It's usually like a mask on my face from hormonal change because of the pill and being in the sun.
I've been using it now for over two months and I'm about to stop since I've gotten rid of the sun damage. How long should I wait before I have facial??? Is my skin sensitive because of this creme? How often can you use Triluma???
Triluma contains the right ingredients to address hyperpigmentation, retin a, hydroquinine, etc.
You would also need to use a potent sunscreen daily as uva/uvb rays will cause the hyperpigmentation to return.
I have not used Triluma, though I have used all the ingredients in it, in other products. You will want to stop say 10 days before the facial, depending on how strong a product will be used.
From what I hear from others on these boards is that some people are just prone to hyperpigmentation issues- if that is the case, to stave off a return good sunscreen and some form of 'maintenance' with products is needed. It doesn't have to be triluma, you could use anything with hyrdroquinine in it (4% seems to be the lowest % that is effective) along with some aha's and retinol or retin a, 3 or 4 times a week.
The type of pill you are on could be excerbating your problem. You might want to ask your doc whether there is another pill formula that is less likely to cause the pigmentation.
