Long-term Safety Of Hydroquinone?
I want to ask, you shouldn’t use a facial bleach that contains hydroquinone in the long term so how long should it be stopped after using it? Is it after the pigmentation of the skin gets better or what happens because my face has a lot of black spots, maybe it’s hereditary. So is melanox or paraquin etc safe for night cream? Thank you
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Hydroquinone is an external medicine that is used to get rid of black spots on the face. These black spots can occur due to acne scars, scars or sun exposure. This drug works by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase, which is an enzyme that produces skin pigments.
This drug must be used under the instructions and supervision of a doctor. The drug should not be used in the long term, because it can irritate the skin, so that the skin becomes red and feels hot, usually this complaint appears after 6 months of use. However, this drug will still be safe to use in small doses and uses a minimum of SPF 30 when leaving the house and of course must be under the supervision of a doctor. Do not use this medication on skin that is injured, irritated and sensitive (around the eyes, nose and mouth).
I suggest that you control according to the schedule determined by the doctor and use this drug according to the doctor's instructions.
Besides using hydroquinone to treat your dark spots, you should also consume vitamins A and C which you can get from fruits and vegetables. Vitamins A and C will help keep your skin bright.
So, hopefully it's useful.
