Melacare Description

Although sunshine makes us feel good, supplies us with vitamin D, can help clear some skin conditions, and can actually prevent certain cancers; long-term exposure can be partly to blame for the appearance of dark blotches on various parts of the face. This is called melasma and it is more common in women between 20 and 50 years old. It can also occur during hormonal changes or you could be genetically predisposed to it.

The three active ingredients of Melacare can help you deal with the facial discoloration so your skin tone is even. Applying Melacare on acne scars will help diminish the purplish areas so you can stop using layers of foundation to cover up the uneven skin tone.

Melacare Contains Three Active Ingredients

When applied as directed by your dermatologist, Melacare or generic Hydroquinone/Tretinoin/ Mometasone is absorbed into your skin cells. Hydroquinone goes to work by inhibiting an enzyme called tyrosinase which is responsible for producing melanin and increases the breakdown of melanosomes in your skin’s pigment cells. Tretinoin helps to replace older, damaged skin with newer skin which contributes to the elimination of fine wrinkles. Mometasone is a corticosteroid that will help to inhibit your inflammatory response and reduce swelling if you have a flare-up of psoriasis or eczema. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions Treated by Melacare

Another variation of melasma known as Chloasma may occur during pregnancy, if you take birth control, or are on hormone therapy replacement. The hormonal changes can stimulate a temporary boost in the amount of melanin your body produces. Melanin is a natural substance that gives your hair, skin, and eyes their color. Genetics will determine the type of melanin you have and the ratio of the pigments.

Some mothers-to-be may notice dark, discolored symmetrical patches of skin usually on the cheeks, upper lip, forehead, and chin. Chloasma is also referred to as ‘the mask of pregnancy’ due to the dark facial patches that resemble a mask. After the birth of your baby, as your hormones settle down, the dark patches will fade.

Before Melacare is Prescribed to You

Ask your doctor if there is any risk to applying Melacare while you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or are breast feeding. To determine if Melacare is right for you, explain other medical conditions and allergies you have to your doctor and list any current OTC or Rx medications you use or take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.

Melacare Precautions

Do not apply Melacare on anyone aged twelve years and younger. Take care not to get any Melacare in your eyes. Your skin may be more sensitive to sunlight while treating with Melacare so avoid exposure to it as much as you can and wear protective clothing and a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher. If you have not achieved any results of skin lightening after two months of using Melacare, you should discontinue the treatment.
