Permanency of Hydroquinone

Hydroquinone effects the melanocyte and the pigment in the keratinocytes (the skin cells). Therefore, if you stop using it, the cells go back to their old ways and the spots return. It is best to use this as a part of your normal skin care.The Obagi System uses hydroquinone either every other day or daily for 6 weeks and twice a week for 12 weeks and then repeats. It is best to consult a physician who specializes in skin rejuvenation.
