Early treatment is best!
I don't use this drug for melasma because it seems to do exactly what you mentioned. Because HQ is a bleach , they say only put it on the dark areas!.
More dark areas keep coming when patients are not schooled in the IMPORTANCE OF SUN PROTECTION. The sunlight doesn't stop ....thus melasma treatment is not effective unless you use SPF at least 45, every day of your life. Sunny, rainy, cloudy or days you arent going anywhere are STILL days to apply sun protection.
I use different a approach and try to get patients to understand that we TREAT but don't cure. Much like diabetes or hypertension, you must keep doing what you did to get the skin clear with effective creams and SUN PROTECTION faithfully.
