Benefits of Combilite Cream

In Melasma

Melasma is a common skin problem that causes dark, discolored patches on your skin primarily on the face. It frequently occurs during pregnancy and menopause. Combilite Cream helps to lighten these dark patches by reducing the production of melanin (natural skin pigment). It lightens skin color and gives a smoother-looking skin. Combilite Cream also reduces any swelling, redness and itchiness especially if you have a sensitive skin. This helps boost your self-esteem and confidence as your appearance changes. Keep using it for as long as it is prescribed to get the full benefits.

How to use Combilite Cream

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the cream. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

How Combilite Cream works

Combilite Cream is a combination of three medicines: Hydroquinone, Tretinoin and Fluocinolone acetonide 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. Fluocinolone acetonide is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy.
