 Skin Lightening Products

At MaxAesthetics we utilize medical grade customized skin bleaching /skin lightening products formulated with Hydroquinone, botanicals, acids, vitamins and moisturizers for the prevention and reversal of hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne blemishes or dark spots. Achieving a healthy glow with an even complexion is possible with the right products. 

We offer a range of facial creams, as well a body cream, to lighten hyperpigmentation and even-out the skin tone. 
The 2% Fade Cream is the highest strength hydroquinone skin lightening product sold over the counter.  
Over the counter strength creams do however tend to be less effective at lightening or bleaching and is better used as a maintenance option. Hydroquinone products at 4% or higher are more effective, but can be irritating to some skin types.  
For this reason Medical grade bleaching or skin lightening products with 4% Hydroquinone or higher should not be continuously used for more than 4 to 6 months.

Hydroquinone products are best kept sealed and stored in the refrigerator, so as to maintain potency and efficacy and is best used within six to twelve months. Combining Hydroquinone with other agents such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids and trentinoin will enhance the lightening or bleaching effects.
Is Hydroquinone Safe?
Are there side effects of skin bleaching products use?
Side effects of hydroquinone include irritation, possible allergic reactions, that may present as itching, post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (dark spots) especially if you are exposed to sunlight without sunscreen, and temporary lightening or de-pigmentation of treated and surrounding skin. These side effects are temporary and will resolve upon stopping usage of the Hydroquinone product.  Another possible but rare side effect known as ochronosis may occur with long term use of hydroquinone.  Ochronosis is a permanent grey or blue-black discoloration which may occur in very dark-skinned or African
American patients after prolonged use of an HQ bleaching product stronger than 3%.For an in depth video regarding the safety of Hydroquinone, click here. 

What is the best way to use Hydroquinone Products for a Great Result?
As we have already mentioned above, long-term use of Medical strength skin lightening products 4% or higher should be avoided. It is best to use such products for the length of time your skincare professional recommends based on your type of hyperpigmentation, then switch to a lower strength for maintenance or completely switch to a non-hydroquinone skin brightener for a few months and then use the hydroquinone only as needed or as advised by a professional. Some hyperpigmentation can be very difficult to lighten with products alone, therefore a professional face or body peel may be needed to aid in the lightening process.
