What Is Melanorm HC Cream?
Melanorm HC Cream is used to reduce the colour of skin and remove any dark spots like age spots, freckles, and other skin discolouration associated with skin trauma, pregnancy, birth control pills, eczema or hormone replacement therapy. Melanorm HC Cream acts as a skin-bleaching agent and works by inhibiting an enzyme reaction in the applied skin cells.
How Does Melanorm HC Cream Work?
Melanorm HC Cream is a combination of three medicines: Hydroquinone, Tretinoin and Hydrocortisone which treat melasma (dark spots on skin). Hydroquinone is a skin lightening medicine. It reduces the amount of a skin pigment (melanin) that causes darkening of skin. Tretinoin is a form of vitamin A that helps the skin to renew itself more quickly. Hydrocortisone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy.
