ULTRAQUIN 4% PLAIN CREAM (HYDROQUINONE)

Treat Dark Spots, Age Spots, Freckles, and Other Skin Discolorations

Ultraquin 4% Plain Cream is a skin lightening product that your doctor can prescribe to even out your skin tone and fade the brown patches caused by the sun, certain drugs and medical conditions, or the aging process.

Melasma is the name given to this condition that puts dark-skinned individuals at a higher risk for having uneven skin tone compared to fair-haired and fair-skinned people. These patches of brown or gray-brown coloration usually appears on the face. Hormone changes are another reason for these patches to appear, including the use of birth control pills, hormone therapy, or when you are pregnant.

How Ultraquin 4% Plain Cream Can Help

Your eye, hair, and skin color are determined by a natural substance in your body called melanin, which is produced by skin cells known as melanocytes. If something should happen change that causes an increase melanin production, the brown patches can start to appear.

Applying Ultraquin 4% Plain Cream or generic Hydroquinone can help to diminish the darker areas by inhibiting the action of the enzyme that makes melanin. This results in a decrease of the production of melanin while increasing the breakdown of the melasomes in your skin’s pigment cells. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Hormones and Melasma

Some women that become pregnant may notice uneven skin tone and a line that runs the length of their belly, called the linea nigra. Melasma is also named chloasma or “the mask of pregnancy” for this reason. The need for a skin lightening product such as Ultraquin 4% Plain Cream is usually not recommended as this line and other dark patches will lighten up some time after giving birth. Hormone therapy can also cause the darkening of your skin and should fade once menopause symptoms have stopped and therapy is no longer required.

Before You Begin Applying Ultraquin 4% Plain Cream

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding as Ultraquin 4% Plain Cream may not be advised at this time. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list any current OTC and Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. Your doctor may replace or change some of these if any of your drugs are thought to be the reason for melasma or could cause an adverse reaction with Ultraquin 4% Plain Cream.

Proper Use of Ultraquin 4% Plain Cream

The use of an SPF30 sunblock is another OTC product you should apply before going out into the sun’s rays to avoid future darkened areas. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and away from pets. Do not share this topical prescription cream with others. Ultraquin 4% Plain Cream and other skin lighteners will not work overnight, so be patient as it can take a couple of months before you notice any change in your skin tone.
