How Triluma Cream Work?
Triluma contains 3 different medicines, i.e., Hydroquinone (reversible skin bleaching compound), Tretinoin (a retinoid agent that increases skin shedding) and Fluocinolone (reduces itching, redness and swelling). Each medicine works according to its capacity and efficiency, and as a result, the cream helps improve Melasma. Excess exposure to sunlight, hormonal changes can cause your Melasma cream to come back. You can restart the course if it comes back, but do not forget to check with your doctor for restarting the treatment to avoid any side effects.
