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.

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
  • Recommended treatment length is 3-6 months
  • One time and 6 month (1 initial, 3 refills) treatment options

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 3-6 months

Is this treatment right for me?

  • Can be useful at any age 18+
  • The earlier you begin treatment, the better the results
  • Useful for dark spots associated with freckles, age spots, OCPs, pregnancy, HRT, and trauma.
  • Most will not have any skin irritation and will continue to see benefits from this treatment throughout its use
  • Recommended for light and medium skin tones

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
  • Maximum of 6 months of treatment
  • If no results are seen after 3 months of treatment, hydroquinone should be discontinued
  • Just answer a few questions to get started with your online visit
