Demelan Cream is gentle
Demelan Cream does not contain hydroquinone. Hydroquinone is a skin-lightening agent often used in other treatments and should only be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional, as it has been known to cause sensitivity. This synthetic-based ingredient has been banned in Europe and Japan as it may be the cause of certain adverse health effects and is linked to severe hyperpigmentation diseases.
Demelan Cream is easy to use
Demelan Cream can conveniently be used together with your usual daily skincare regime.
It is recommended that you begin by applying it every second day for the first week. Apply a small amount of Demelan Cream to the problem areas in the evening after your normal cleansing routine. Demelan Cream is not intended as a replacement for your normal moisturiser. Apply Demelan Cream before your moisturiser so as not to create a barrier between the treatment and your skin.
A sunscreen with an SPF30 or higher should be applied during the day and prolonged sun exposure should be avoided while treating pigmentation problems. Avoid applying to eyelids, external corners of the mouth or nose and any injured or irritated parts of the skin.
You should stop treatment once the discoloured area returns to the same shade as the surrounding skin. Continued use should be under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
Demelan Cream should not be used with other pigment-reducing or peeling treatments.
Demelan Cream is not recommended for persons under the age of 18 or pregnant and breastfeeding women without prescription by a doctor.
Demelan Cream is available from your local pharmacy
Demelan Cream is prescribed by dermatologists, so the cream is often found at your pharmacy’s dispensary. Because Demelan Cream is not scheduled, it is also available OTC without prescription, at an affordable price. Speak to your pharmacist or OTC consultant for more information. For further information, please refer to Demelan Cream’s package insert.
