Hydroquinone is a very effective ingredient in treating hyperpigmentation and it is safe to use under doctor supervision! There have been no reported incidents of topical hydroquinone causing cancer in humans. As a reminder, it is required to take a break from treatments that include hydroquinone after several months of use, as directed by your dermatologist. If you have any questions about your treatment plan or when you should take a break, please feel free to reach out to your dermatologist for personalized advice on continuing treatment. How do I message my designated doctor?
Once you reach your desired results, we recommend switching to a maintenance formula and addressing the cause of your hyperpigmentation (eg. staying out of the sun to prevent sun spots).
