Prescription Strength Hydroquinone 4%
Hydroquinone is a safe and effective skin bleaching ingredient used to lighten areas of darkened skin. It is available at your local pharmacy and by prescription from a dermatologist or physician.
Prescription strength Hydroquinone 4% has been used by dermatologists and other physicians for more than 40 years to reduce the appearance of dark pigmentation of the skin caused by a variety of skin disorders.
As prescription drugs, these hydroquinone products must be administered under the supervision of a physician.
Hydroquinone is common in foods such as cranberries, blueberries, pears, beans, tea, coffee, red wine, beer, broccoli and onions and is therefore ever present in humans.
It has been, and continues to be, the gold standard in the treatment of melasma, brown patches on the face and other parts of the body that are exposed to the sun, and other skin discoloration due to its effectiveness and safety.
