Melalong (Hydroquinone/Mequinol/Tretinoin) is used to treat melasma. It helps to reverse hyperpigmentation by whitening darkened patches of skin. Dermatologists have also recommended its use to some patients for the bleaching of skin affected by age spots, chloasma and freckles when these conditions are caused by hormonal problems, exposure to the sun or other factors. Hydroquinone is widely used in dermatology as a treatment for hyperpigmentory disorders.
Experts believe that its depigmenting activity is due to it functioning as a substrate of tyrosinase (an oxidase which is involved in the production of the pigment melanin) and affecting the active melanocytes. As a result of this, it is able to effectively inhibit melanogenesis (the process in which melanin is synthesized). The reduction in pigments leads to lightening of darkened skin patches. Tretinoin, which is vitamin A in its carboxylic acid form helps boost skin renewal and exfoliation. Many people have used it for treating acne, and it can also help decrease wrinkles and fine lines.
Dosage and Administration
Melalong (Hydroquinone/Mequinol/Tretinoin) comes in the form of a cream which is applied directly to the skin requiring depigmentation. Patients should avoid getting the cream on skin which is not meant to be bleached (such as the skin surrounding the affected area). Consult your physician if you are affected by hyperpigmentation, so that the most suitable form of treatment can be decided, and a proper dosing schedule calculated accordingly. Apply the cream as directed by your physician, and ensure that you comply with all instructions given by your physician. Never apply more than the recommended amount.
If you experience side effects during the course of treatment with Melalong (Hydroquinone/Mequinol/Tretinoin) cream, ensure that you make your physician aware of this. Possible examples include:
