Warning:

Please refer to the program kit box or product container for cautions and warnings.

Notes:

  • Those products will make you more sun-sensitive so be sure to use a sunscreen during the day.
  • These products will also cause some anticipated reactions (flaking, redness & sensitivity) - these are good signs of repair and will dissipate as skin becomes stronger and more tolerant of the product.
  • Hydroquinone products (such as Pigment Control Creme & Pigment Control & Blending Creme) should not be used for more than 5 months. Take 2-3 month break then you can resume using the Hydroquinone products again.
  • Please do not spot treat with the hydroquinone products but rather apply these products all over the skin evenly and not just to the affected pigmented areas.
  • You should never stop using Hydroquinone products abruptly but rather wean off them slowly to prevent rebound pigmentation.

Weaning off Hydroquinone products protocol:

  • Use Hydroquinone products daily for 3 months
  • Month 4: weeks 1 & 2: 4 days using the Hydroquinone products, the remainder of the week use Non-Hydroquinone products (Retinol Skin Brightener, 10% Vitamin C Self-Activating, Brightalive, Wrinkle & Texture Repair)
  • Month 4: weeks 3 & 4: 3 days using the hydroquinone products, the remainder of the week use Non-Hydroquinone products.
  • Month 5: weeks 1 & 2: 2 days using the Hydroquinone products, the remainder of the week use Non-Hydroquinone products.
  • Month 5: weeks 3 & 4: 1 day using the hydroquinone products, the remainder of the week use Non-Hydroquinone products.
  • Month 6: you should now be only using Non-Hydroquinone products.
