I have 3 scars on my leg. They are pink and around them are very dark. Should I use Triluma on the entire scar since triluma has bleaching properties or just on the dark areas of each scar?
Use Triluma on Dark Areas of Scar Only?
Doctor Answers (1)
I would only use the Triluma as directed by your physician.
Remember, Triluma has a bleaching agent (Hydroquinone 4%) a retinoic acid as well as a steroid component. Prolonged skin exposure to the steroid can cause detrimental effects of thinning the dermis and resultant damage to the skin. I only allow my patients to use the Triluma for 6 weeks and then abstain for at least 2-3 months. This may be viewed as conservative, but I have as yet to experience any significant side effects and use the porduct often.
I hope this helps!
