This product reduces mild pigmentation and can be used in conjunction with the Superfade Face Cream for hyper-pigmentation
Superfade Cream and Face Cream
SuperFade Cream and SuperFade Face Cream are the only non prescription pharmacy medicines in Australia which contain the powerful active ingredient Hydroquinone.
Hydroquinone is the ‘gold standard’ in pigmentation fading, it stops the formation of excess melanin at the source – in the melanocyte.
Hydroquinone is the most widely used and effective ingredient in fading unwanted pigmentation and has been used for over 50 years. Although there has been some controversy over this powerful ingredient, it has been confirmed as safe to be sold as an over the counter treatment at a 2 % concentration and at higher concentrations on prescription from a doctor or dermatologist. Hydroquinone is the gold standard in fading pigmentation as it limits the formation of excess melanin at the source – in the melanocyte.
Common side effects may include, mild stinging of treated skin or mild itching, dryness, redness or other irritation.
Hydroquinone is the most widely used ingredient for treating pigmentation as it reduces the formation of excess melanin at the source. I prescribe hydroquinone in concentrations between 3 – 6% for some types of hyperpigmentation, however 2% hydroquinone is available over the counter in pharmacies without a prescription.
