WHAT IS TRI-LUMA CREAM?
It is a medicated cream containing a combination of three active ingredients that complement each other: Hydroquinone, Tretinoin, Fluocinolone Acetonide.
TRI-LUMA cream is indicated for topical treatment of melasma. The three above mentioned active ingredients are present at the following concentrations:
- Hydroquinone 4%
- Tretinoin 0.05%
- Fluocinolone acetonide 0.01%
What is Hydroquinone?
It is an aromatic organic compound that was originally derived from quinone.
Hydroquinone is used as a component for skin whitening: it reduces the pigmentation by blocking melanin and evening the skin color.
What is Tretinoin?
It is a natural retinoid, an active form of Vitamin A. Tretinoin renews and protects the skin, cleanses clogged pores, helps stop future acne breakouts and reduces inflammation.
What is Fluocinolone Acetonide?
It is anti-inflammatory component that helps to heal the skin by reducing inflammation.
WHY SHOULD YOU BUY TRI-LUMA CREAM?
There are two main reasons to buy TRI-LUMA:
Results of treatment with this cream become noticeable quite quickly, in about 4-6 weeks.
TRI-LUMA is the only FDA-approved treatment containing the three active ingredients mentioned above.
Use it only once a day, in the evening before going to bed by applying it on problem areas. Its use during the day cancels the effect of tretinoin since its molecules are destroyed in daylight.
Also, if you do not use sunscreens, under the influence of UV rays, tretinoin becomes toxic. The same goes for hydroquinone.
As a rule, a pea-sized amount should be applied evenly to each affected area of your face.
When it comes to using cosmetics while going through TRI-LUMA treatment, it is advisable to use only non-comedogenic skin care and makeup products.
