Hydroquinone

Recommended Posts

When you use Hydroquinone cream does it just bleach the hyperpigmented areas, or does it bleach ALL of your skin? Like do you get whiter when you use it?

yep it bleaches all ur skin. after using 4% for 3 months, my face was a shade lighter than my neck. =P it went back to normal after another few months.

hydroquonine only works for brown marks, fyi.

yeah it bleaches your whole skin.

And here it comes again, the same debate...

It has worked for brown and red marks for me. It makes the red marks go brown faster and then fades the brown marks. I can bet my life on it, I've been using that cream for almost 2 decades.

isnt it dangerous to use it for more than a short-term use (ie. a few months)? i have read that on numerous websites that sell the product.

Yikes, I didn't know it bleaches your skin! I got a gel from Murad with hydroquinone. Luckily I stopped using it right away because it seemed to make me break out.

I guess it's really best to just spot treat with a Q-tip or something then. I have read marks though, and I hear this is just for brown.

hydroquinone doesn't actually bleach your skin per se, it is a melanin inhibitor. so while it does appear to bleach all of your face, it won't just lighten the whole thing so that you can still see your brown marks, which are only slightly lighter now. eventually all of your face will be the same, lighter color.

Hello all. I purchased the Cosmelan Depigmentation Pack which I applied at home. I am absolutely amazed with the results.... It has been 29 day since I used the mask. I continue to us the Cosmelan 2 daily. My dark marks are 97% gone and my acne is too!! I am totally confident that they will be 100% gone soon. This product only cost me 375.00 for the complete pack/kit, but is is worth so so much more. I have tried so many things and am so relieved to have finally for the magic cure for those ugly marks that have been on my face for so long. I feel as though I have a brand new face. My family is totally amazed. My husband is treating me like a brand new wife, and we have been married for 6 years.

Oh yeah.

I bought the Depigmentation treatment at the following site and they sell the Cosmelan 2 maintainence cream for 140.00. Saw it on ebay too.

www buycosmelan com

I paid using Paypal and recieved my package in 4 days.

Signing off-to go and stare at myself in the mirror. LOL.
