Is Triluma good for pigmentation problems?
I’m going to steer you to the blog content also on this one. The combination of the 4% hydroquinone, plus tretinoin, plus a mild steroid has been proven to be more effective for more people than hydroquinone 4% alone. Other readers questions on hydroquinones.
This is because the mild steroid helps to reduce the irritation from the hydroquinone which can be a problem AND the tretinoin helps to prevent the side effects of the steroid. It was originally called a “triple cream” or the Kligman formula after the professor at University of Michigan who invented it.
Having said that, I still strongly vote for using hydroquinones with a doctor’s supervision and limiting their use to 3-4 months out of a year. The EU has banned hydroquinones which is controversial in the U.S.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
