TriLuma

Tri-Luma® Cream is the only triple-action cream approved for the short-term and intermittent long-term treatment of moderate to severe melasma. The latest long-term safety studies confirm that Tri-Luma® Cream is safe and effective when used for longer than eight weeks and repeatedly thereafter when *melasma recurs.

*Melasma is a natural darkening of the skin on your face caused by excessive production of melanin — the pigment that causes your skin to tan. That's why the sun, which increases melanin production, usually makes your melasma worse.

Melasma can be mild, moderate or severe, depending on how much of your face is discolored and how much darker than normal your skin has become.

Melasma is usually caused by normal hormonal changes in women — during pregnancy or when taking birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy. Because of the way it looks when it usually occurs, melasma is sometimes called the "mask of pregnancy." Men can develop melasma, although it is rare. Melasma may be associated with the use of certain anti-epileptic drugs.

Melasma only occurs on the areas of your skin that are exposed to the sun. Exposure to the sun, even during normal daily activities, can further darken melasma.

Tretinoin .025%, .05%, .1%
Tretinoin (TRET-i-noyn) is used to treat wrinkles and sun damaged skin. It works by repairing damage to the deeper layers of the skin, restoring elasticity by enhancing the production of collagen and elastin. Tretinoin cream may also used to treat and control acne. This product is effective for the treatment of acne vulgaris in the first, second and third (I-II-III) degrees.
