Available only by prescription, Hydroquinone Skin Bleaching Cream is a highly potent Rx bleaching solution that gradually lightens and inhibits hyperpigmentation by altering the natural processes that cause cell damage. Specifically created to help even skin tone by slowing melanin production, it dramatically reduces the appearance of dark spots, chloasma, melasma, freckles and sun damage for an even skin tone. While the hydroquinone helps eliminate dark spots and even skin tone, the Retinoic Acid or Tretinoin component of this product breaks up and sheds dead skin cells to reveal fresh new skin underneath.
Signs of Aging
Skin changes are among the most visible signs of aging, such as dark spots, large pores, leathery texture, dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles. There are a variety of factors that can affect the appearance of your skin, including environmental conditions, genetics, stress, and diet. Fortunately, with good skin care and smart lifestyle choices, you can help minimize the visible appearance of aging for healthy-looking skin that stands the test of time.
Good skin texture is even, smooth, and healthy-looking. Enlarged pores, acne, oily or dry skin, and roughness can all affect the appearance of your skin texture. Prescription strength Vitamin A, called Tretinoin, helps improve skin texture by shedding dead skin cells to reveal healthy, youthful skin underneath. Co-Q-10 protects cells’ DNA by helping to prevent structural and cellular damage caused by pollution, sunlight, and cigarette smoke.
Uneven Skin Tone & Dark Spots
Dark spots on the skin, also called hyperpigmentation, occur when melanin, the pigment that gives our skin its color, is overproduced in the skin, and is often caused by sun exposure, age, hormonal influences, and skin injuries or inflammation. Freckles, age spots, and melasma caused by pregnancy are all common forms of hyperpigmentation. Prescription strength Hydroquinone cream, often referred to as ‘bleaching cream’ helps suppress overactive pigment cells to lighten dark spots and create an overall even skin tone.

The overall prevalence of sulfite sensitivity in the general population is unknown and probably low. Sulfite sensitivity is seen more frequently in asthmatic than in nonasthmatic people.
