Hydroquinone Cream - Overview

Hydroquinone cream is a skin medication that is applied topically and is used in bleaching hyperpigmented skin. People interested in getting a hydroquinone prescription can connect with a medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe hydroquinone medication, including hydroquinone 4% cream, when appropriate.

What Is Hydroquinone?

Hydroquinone, marketed in products such as Obagi, is a medication used in skin bleaching. Hydroquinone belongs to a class of medications known as melanin synthesis inhibitors. It is thought that hydroquinone leads to a form of skin depigmentation which can be reversed by blocking enzymatic and other metabolic processes in skin cells. Hydroquinone is sometimes prescribed as a cosmetic treatment to bleach freckles, melasma, acne scars, and other areas of hyperpigmentation on the skin. The effects of hydroquinone are generally reversible when the bleached areas are exposed to ultraviolet light or sunlight. Hydroquinone is combined with fluocinolone acetonide (Synalar) and tretinoin to form Tri-Luma cream.

Hydroquinone 4% Cream - Cost

Hydroquinone is sometimes prescribed to be administered as a thin application once daily for three months as ultimately determined by the judgment of the medical provider. Hydroquinone itself darkens when exposed to air but is otherwise found as fine white needles. Hydroquinone 4% cream costs under $40 for 1 tube with 28 grams of cream. Hydroquinone coupons are also available online to help reduce the cost. Some insurance plans may cover costs associated with a hydroquinone ointment prescription but it depends on the insurance.

Can I Buy Hydroquinone Online?

Some versions of hydroquinone are available as hydroquinone OTC (over the counter). However, prescription versions of hydroquinone are not available over the counter. For prescription hydroquinone, while many people want to just buy hydroquinone online, the first step is getting a consultation with a medical provider. Push Health can connect people interested in using hydroquinone with a medical provider who can prescribe hydroquinone medication, including hydroquinone 4% cream, when appropriate to do so.

Hydroquinone - Side Effects

Hydroquinone prescription medication can cause side effects when used. Side effects related to hydroquinone use include skin irritation, dryness, redness and itching. Long term use of hydroquinone can result in blue-black discoloration and the formation of small lesions on the skin. Anyone who has a hypersensitivity or allergy to hydroquinone 4% cream should not use hydroquinone ointment. Sun exposure should be closely monitored while using hydroquinone. Hydroquinone cream and alcohol should not be used at the same time. Prior to use, questions about hydroquinone and possible side effects should be discussed with a licensed medical provider and pharmacist.
