What is Tri-Luma Cream Used For
Doctors prescribe Tri-Luma Cream for melasma, a skin condition with dark blotchy patches on the skin, especially on the cheeks and forehead. This cream is used as a short-term medication of moderate to severe melasma in the face with a presence of measures of sun avoidance, including using sunscreen products of SPF 30 or greater, wearing protective clothing while outside, even if the weather is hazy or cloudy; exposure to sunlight and sunlamps are recommended.
Tri-Luma Cream is a triple combination topical therapy that belongs to the class of corticosteroids, topical depigmenting agents, which contains:
- Hydroquinone – a reversible skin bleaching agent
- Tretinoin – a retinoid that increases skin shedding
- Fluocinolone – a medium-strength corticosteroid reducing swelling, itchiness, and redness
This cream can improve the appearance of melasma, but it is not a cure; long-term exposure to sunlight and the use of estrogen type of birth control may cause it to return.
How to use Tri-Luma Cream
This medication is supplied in a tube with each gram containing fluocinolone acetonide 0.01%, hydroquinone 4%, tretinoin 0.05%; usually prescribed to be used once every night, 30 minutes before bedtime.
A small amount of cream should be applied first in unbroken skin and should be monitored within 24 hours to see if there will be severe side effects. If there is just mild redness, you may continue using this cream, but if the area becomes red, itchy, puffy, or blistered, do not use this cream. The face should be washed first with a mild cleanser and rinsed with water; make sure to dry the face before applying a thin layer of cream to the affected area, including a ½ inch of the normal skin, rub the cream gently, and do not cover it unless instructed by your doctor. Use this cream on a regular basis to maximize its benefits; if a dose is missed, you may apply it as soon as remembered, unless it is nearing the next application time, if it is, let the missed dose be skipped, for using too much may cause adverse effects.
Hyperpigmentation is a broad term of skin condition when one patch on the skin becomes noticeably darker than its surrounding skin, but different reasons may cause it. Tri-Luma Cream’s safety and efficacy have not yet been studied. However, some doctors use this cream to treat hyperpigmentation in darker skins, for Tri-Luma cream contains hydroquinone, a bleaching agent, but the patient is monitored closely.
