Having clear, smooth, evenly coloured skin is desired by many; some are even fortunate to have it, but most are not. Skin colour can be altered by disease, acne, inflammatory conditions or exposure to a range of agents. This is clinically known as hyperpigmentation.
Most skin conditions that cause discolouration are actually harmless, causing more cosmetic and emotional discomfort than medical problems. The goal of therapy in hyperpimentation disorders is to lighten the skin so it blends into the normal skin in the area. Most products used to lighten the skin use hydroquinone. Other drugs commonly used in the treatment include azelaic acid, glycolic acid, hydrocortisone, kojic acid tretinoin. For treatment of freckles, age spots and other discolouration, a sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 15 is incorporated into the cream by our compounding specialist. Alpha lipoic acids are often combined with hydroquinone to provide an exfoliant effect to enhance the removal of the darkened skin.
Skin Whitening Cream
Our laboratory can produce effective over the counter preparations which can lighten the skin. The whitening cream is applied directly to freckles, sunspots and blemishes to help reduce their appearance.
The cream is to be applied morning and night to the affected areas. Noticable improvement occurs after three to six months and treatment should continue regularly until then.
