Yes, Triluma is a prescription drug, however, due to manufacturing difficulties it is not currently available and hasn't been for more than 6 months.  The company promises it should be available soon.  In the meantime similar results can be obtained with the basic ingredients, tretinoin, hydroquinone and a topical steroid applied individually or compounded by a pharmacy.
