We want to make sure you fully understand your treatment. Below outlines the directions, benefits, expectations, and risks with Hydroquinone.
Hydroquinone is a topical cream used to lighten dark patches of skin like freckles, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, etc. The medication works by slowing the production of melanin within the skin; melanin is the pigment that gives human skin and hair color.
Sun exposure darkens your skin (think sun tanning). In order for hydroquinone to remove your blemishes, you need to protect yourself from the sun as much as possible. Opt for shade whenever you can. Wear a hat and/or protective clothing. And apply sunscreen of at least 30 SPF every day, preferably one that contains zinc oxide.
Hydroquinone is not an overnight fix. It takes 4-6 weeks of consistent treatment to see a noticeable difference. After that your blemishes will keep improving as long as you stick with it.
