Tri – Luma is a light yellow, FDA approved cream for moderate to severe melasma. It contains 3 different active ingredients; Fluocinolone 0.01% which reduces inflammation, hydroquinone 4% which lightens the skin and tretinoin 0.05% which increases cell turnover and exfoliates the skin.
It should only be used for a maximum of 8 weeks due to the steroid content. You will see a notable difference in your skin within 4 weeks. It needs to be stored in a fridge.
