For those of you who have read the article “Zapping off those brown blotches” in Mind Your Body and am interested to use Tri-Luma to treat your melasma or brown spots, please read my review on the Tri-Luma cream. It may work to some extent but it does have its limitations. In fact, IÂ wasÂ concerned that certain important information wereÂ omitted in the article.
First, your skin can become thinner using Tri-Luma because this is a skin bleaching cream!
Second, you can only use this cream for a period of eight weeks maximum.
Third, using the product can lead to a skin condition known as ochronosis in which the skin becomes thick and dark.
Finally, Tri-Luma contains hydroquinone which have often been said to be carcinogenic.
I won’t be surprised that the dermatologist didn’t highlight these as mine certainly did not. I learnt of the information by surfing through the Internet myself!
So please, if you’re keen on using Tri-Luma, know the risks!Â And always use a sunscreen when using a product like this.
