ZO Pigment Control Crème

Pigment Control Crème 2% HQ is a highly potent bleaching solution that gradually lightens and inhibits hyperpigmentation by altering the natural processes that cause cell damage. Specifically created to help even skin tone by slowing melanin production, it dramatically reduces the appearance of chloasma, melasma, freckles and sun damage.

Pigment Control Crème 2% HQ contains 2% hydroquinone, which is a highly effective treatment for moderate to severe hyperpigmentation, especially melasma. This potent compound gradually bleaches and lightens a wide variety of skin conditions and reduces sun damage. Hydroquinone should be used for a maximum treatment period of 3 months (or as prescribed by your health care practitioner) in order to avoid inflammation, rebound hyperpigmentation and reduced tolerance. After this treatment period, patients can maintain their results with the ZO® Non-Hydroquinone Brightening System.

I love this product and mix it with my Retin-A every night. Nothing evens and brightens your skin like this stuff! I’ve ususlly used the 4% but I’m sure the new 2% will work just as well. Maybe a bit slower to work. I usually go on this for 4 months and then take a break and then add a non Hydroquinone brightener like the skinmedica Lytera 2.0.
