Obagi ELASTIderm D©colletage System (hydroquinone)

How Supplied:

Skin Lightening Complex contains 4% hydroquinone

Indications and Usage:

For the gradual bleaching of hyperpigmented skin conditions such as chloasma, melasma, freckles, senile lentigines, and other unwanted areas of melanin hyperpigmentation, and to reduce the appearance of visible wrinkles.

Side Effects and Contraindications:

Hydroquinone is a skin bleaching agent, which may produce unwanted cosmetic effects if not used as directed. Test for skin sensitivity by applying a small amount to unbroken skin and check in 24 hours. Minor redness is not a contradiction, but where there is itching or vesicle formation or excessive inflammatory response, further treatment is not advised. Sunscreen is an essential aspect when using a hydroquinone therapy and must be applied daily before having sun exposure. The Skin Lightening Complex contains metabisulfate, a sulfite that may cause serious allergic type reactions (e.g., hives, itching, wheezing and astyhma attacks) in certain susceptible persons.
