When over-the-counter topical products aren’t giving you the lightening results you’re looking for, ask your doctor about prescription-strength hydroquinone, a skin lightener that has been used in the US for more than 40 years and is the leading choice of many dermatologists to fade hyperpigmentation.

To treat melasma, a type of hyperpigmentation caused by hormonal changes and sun exposure, your doctor may prescribe Tri-Luma cream. This is the only FDA-approved hydroquinone-based product to treat melasma. Recent studies show that Tri-Luma-which contains a low-potency steroid, 4% hydroquinone, and the retinoid tretinoin-can lighten moderate to severe melasma in as little as eight weeks.

If you start using Tri-Luma, make sure to always protect your skin with sunscreen to prevent future discoloration from occuring.
