Buy Lustra brand or generic Hydroquinone prescription drug from Canada
Why is Lustra prescribed?
Hydroquinone (Lustra) cream is prescribed to lighten darkened areas of the skin such as freckles, melasma, liver spots, and other areas of hyperpigmentation. It can also be prescribed for skin discolorations due to pregnancy, oral contraceptives, medications containing hormones, and trauma to the skin.
What does it do?
Melanin is a natural pigment found on the skin that is produced by cells called melanocytes and is essential in producing the skin’s color. Lustra cream, when applied to the skin, decreases melanin formation and causes depigmentation of the skin. However, this effect is not permanent and may be reversible.
How should I apply it?
Hydroquinone is a 4% cream available in 30g tubes. It is intended only for topical administration and it is important to use it in the quantity and duration advised by your doctor.
In cases of accidental application to your eyes, nose, or mouth, flush these areas with plenty of water to prevent any untoward effects.
Exercise caution when exposing yourself to sunlight or in areas or devices, which emit ultraviolet light such as tanning booths and sunlamps. Lustra cream may cause treated areas of your skin to be more sensitive in these situations and it is best to apply sunscreen and wear protective clothing when going outdoors.
Apply the cream to the area of the skin that is affected in the manner prescribed by your doctor. This medication is only intended for use on the affected areas and should not be used elsewhere as this may cause undesirable lightening.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if used properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, apply one immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never apply two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before using Lustra?
Before using Hydroquinone, inform your doctor or pharmacist of any allergies or sensitiveness to the product. It may contain sulfites, an inactive ingredient, which may cause allergic reactions.
Inform your doctor of your medical history as well, especially previous skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
First, test a small amount of cream onto an area of unbroken skin and check after 24 hours. If any severe itching, redness, or blistering occurs, do not proceed with using the product and inform your doctor. If only mild redness occurs, it is possible to use the product for treatment.
