What about hydroquinone to fade dark spots, acne spots or scars ?

Written by Beauty Match. Posted in Ethnic Beauty Tips

If you are a darker skin beauty you have been using hydroquinone base products to fade hyperpigmentation spots caused by scars or adult acne, or if you are recovering from plastic surgery, or if you want to fade post-surgery scars as quickly as possible, you might want to consider talking to your dermatologist or plastic surgeon about a product like Botanical Skin Brightener from Naturopathica.
I’ve already highlighted in the past the dangers and concerns around hydroquinone. It’s true that hydroquinone usually reduces or removes hyperpigmentation very effectively.

Weaker formulations of hydroquinone are available over the counter, while stronger concentrations can only be prescribed by your plastic surgeon or cosmetic dermatologist.

Hydroquinone is a loaded topic. Many international skincare experts won’t touch this product with a 50-kilometre-long pole because of some research linking hydroquinone to certain cancers. Time and time again skincare professionals who I’ve spoken to about hydroquinone have mentioned that it should only be used as a treatment for a very short period of time (3-4 months) and that it should never be used as a daily treatment against hyperpigmentation or as a way to inhibit melanin formation.

If you ask if a product containing hydroquinone might be more effective than Botanical Skin Brightener from Naturopathica, I’d say you might be partially right in the sense that hydroquinone might work faster at fading the dark spots or scars, but are the side effects worth it?

If you are longing to have perfect skin without dark spots, you might have to do a little extra research to find products that will not cause more harm in the long run or you can definitely look into Botanical Skin Brightener from Naturopathica.
