Safe Skin Lightening Cream

Hydroquinone for facial lightening
Hydroquinone is an effective tyrosinase inhibitor that works at the melanocyte level. It is effective in reducing uneven skin tone and restoring a normal, balanced complexion to the skin.
Non HQ skin lightening creams
In addition to the addition of a topical, patients should absolutely avoid sun exposure as this will worsen the problem of dyschromia. Finally, patients should be aware that estrogen (pregnancy, oral birth control, and as hormone replacement therapy) can worsen the problem.
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.
