Dark spot reducer

Dark spots (melasma) can be safely treated with a very effective prescription medication called hydroquinone. It has been favored over OTC treatments for more than 50 years. ($29)

Hydroquinone treatment

  • Quick physician visits and prescription treatment
  • Hydroquinone, when applied to overly pigmented skin surfaces, improves dark spots and reduces uneven skin tones
  • Begin treatment today and start to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmented skin
  • When Rx is combined with our optional low cost annual membership, refill requests are easy and affordable

What is hydroquinone and how soon will it work?

  • Hydroquinone is a depigmenting agent
  • Melanin is the pigment which causes dark spots, such as age spots, freckles or cholasma
  • Hydroquinone reduces melanin production in skin, resulting in fading of dark spots
  • Onset varies depending on the individual
  • Regularly applying twice a day improves results
  • Maximum results in about 3 months

What is the method of application?

  • Hydroquinone is applied to the affected areas only
  • Apply a thin layer and rub in well on clean skin, once in the morning and again before bed
  • Use SPF 30 or greater to reduce any sun-related side effects
  • Limit application to face and neck only or hands and arms only
  • Results may take several months
  • If no results in 3 months, hydroquinone may be discontinued
