What is Melalong (Hydroquinone/Tretinoin) used for?
Melalong (Hydroquinone/Tretinoin) is a topical medication used to treat hyperpigmentation or unusual darkened areas of the skin. The cream operates by reducing melanin in the skin to lighten its tone to help it match the colour of the other surrounding areas. The medication also helps to promote the regeneration of skin cells to improve its appearance and health. Your doctor may also prescribe this medication along with other procedures to get the best results during treatment.
How should I use Melalong (Hydroquinone/Tretinoin)?
Melalong (Hydroquinone/Tretinoin) should be used strictly according to your doctor`s instructions to get the safest and most effective results during treatment. One daily administration is normally administered each evening, but your particular instructions will be based on your health condition and symptom severity. The cream should be administered by applying a small amount of medication to the area being treated and gently massaged into the skin. Leave the area uncovered after each application to allow any excess medicine to evaporate. Thoroughly wash your hands using soap and water after each use or use latex gloves to apply the medicine to prevent the medicine from contacting areas not being treated or the mucous membranes. Ask your doctor any questions you have about using the medication to ensure the correct administration.
