Fluocinolone Acetonide 0.01%, Hydroquinone 4%, Tretinoin 0.05%
3 Steps to Get Started
Tri-Luma® Cream is the only FDA-approved melasma treatment with 3 active ingredients, uniquely combined and more effective than treatments containing only two of the ingredients.
Tri-Luma® Cream is a unique triple-combination topical therapy for the short-term (8-week) treatment of the dark spots associated with moderate-to-severe facial melasma:
In studies, patients experienced improvement of their melasma with the use of Tri-Luma® Cream as early as 4 weeks. And after 8 weeks of treatment with Tri-Luma® Cream, most patients with moderate-to-severe melasma had at least some improvement. Some had their dark spots clear up completely (38% in one study and 13% in another).
Tri-Luma® Cream (fluocinolone acetonide 0.01%, hydroquinone 4%, tretinoin 0.05%) may improve your melasma, but it is not a cure.
Tri-Luma® Cream (fluocinolone acetonide 0.01%, hydroquinone 4%, tretinoin 0.05%) should always be used as instructed by your doctor. To use the medicine correctly, follow these steps:
During use of Tri-Luma® Cream, you may experience redness, peeling, burning, dryness, itching or other skin irritation. If your skin gets too irritated, stop using Tri-Luma® Cream, and let your doctor know.
Tri-Luma® Cream may also cause a gradual blue-black darkening of your skin; if this happens, stop using the product immediately and speak to your doctor. To help avoid skin dryness, you may use a moisturizer in the morning after you wash your face.
Inform your healthcare professional if:
Use a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and a wide-brimmed hat over the treated areas. It requires only a small amount of sunlight—not just a sunburn—to worsen melasma. If you do get sunburned, stop using Tri-Luma® Cream until your skin is healed. After stopping treatment with Tri-Luma® Cream, continue to protect your skin from sunlight.
