Hydro-Q Gel™ is a prescription-strength medication that lightens skin discolorations, such as sun damage, brown spots, and age spots. It is non-greasy and non-irritating to the skin, and it is free of steroids and retinoid, which means it is safe for use long-term; although we recommend a one month “rest” period between three-month periods of continual use.
Hydro-Q is 4% Hydroquinone, which is the gold standard for topical treatment of hyperpigmentation. Hydroquinone brightens the skin gradually by reducing melanin production. Dr. Cheng will advise you on the best way to use this product during your complimentary consultation.
If you have hyperpigmentation issues, we may recommend Hydro-Q Gel for you.
