Safe Skin Lightening Cream
Doctor Answers 3
Although hydroquinone is very effective for bleaching the skin, it recently was a subject of controversy amongst dermatologists because the FDA issued a warning regarding it's safety. Many hydroquinone products as a result are either off the market or prescribed off label. The safety issues regarding hydroquinone for skin bleaching are controversial but as a patient you should be informed of this issue before taking. There are still some bleaching products on the market that the FDA has not "banned" such as Triluma. I would suggest you discuss these issues with your dermatologist to see his feelings toward this issue.
