Melarase and hydroquinone after laser

I ask patients to start Hydroquinone or Melarase cream immediately after treatment if there is a concern for pigmentation.

Hydroquinones can be resumed a week or two after the Yag

If you have healed completely from the Yag procedure, which typically takes one to two weeks, then you can begin bleaching treatment with hydroquinone.

Can be started as soon as the Yag laser induced scabs fall off

+1

Hydroquinone treatment can be started as soon as the Yag laser induced scabs fall off. This is usually at about 1 week.

YAG Lasers and Hydroquinone

You can use hydroquinone at any point. There is no timeframe after YAG lasers that you need to refrain from using the product.
