A Real Story on Hydroquinone: Lisa's Transformation
“When I was in college I thought I was an introvert because I hated going out, didn’t want to attend parties, dreaded summer vacations, and just about any public appearance. My second roommate in college was the opposite. She loved being social and was always trying to drag me out, and I think sometimes she just thought I wasn’t a fun person at all. Brenda did have something I didn’t, and that was perfect skin, literally. Brenda’s face would glow with such a lovely tone, her skin was so consistently unflawed, and she was 3 years older than me.
I grew up always having freckles and blemishes, and over the last few years they have become more pronounced. I just thought this was the norm for people like me… Oh, how I was wrong! We went on a fun spring break road trip together her senior year, and I became privy to her secret – Hydroquinone! She had this prescription cream with hydroquinone as one of the active ingredients, and she swore by it. She gave me Mint Pharmacy's website and I totally went and bought some, started using it regularly, and it has seriously changed my whole outlook on life! They set me up on a subscription refill and it ships to my door once I’m out. I saw results in a few weeks and fast forward 2 years to today and it’s been a game changer for me. This once college introvert can now barely stay indoors! I flaunt my drastically improved face and glowing skin like it’s going out of style! My roommate, the Mint pharmacy people, and the products they recommended for my skin have totally helped change my whole outlook, literally! I have more confidence, and an ace up my sleeve for dealing with blemishes.” - Lisa
This is Lisa’s actual customer story and review, and we wanted to share her story with you to help our customers understand the positive benefits only prescription-strength skincare can bring.
Hydroquinone, the active ingredient mentioned above, is a common ingredient in topical exfoliating agents, and is used in cosmetic treatment of hyperpigmented skin conditions and blemishes. This hyperpigmentation has many names, to include melasma, liver spots, age spots, freckles, lentigines and acne scars. It has been established as the most effective topical agent for clearing dark spots, fading uneven skin tone, and ultimately lightening the skin leaving a sleek, soft and bright skin.
Hydroquinone, also called quinol, is a drug that belongs to the phenol group of hydrocarbon. The drug blocks the complex mechanism that leads to skin discoloration. It helps skin normalize the production of melanin which is what gives the skin the dark coloration and pigmentations. When there is too much melanin around a spot on the skin, it leads to brown/dark spots. This process is what hydroquinone interrupts.
Most over-the-counter Hydroquinone is typically available up to 2% concentration and usually only achieves minor results, which can take 6-12 months to see. Prescription Hydroquinone is much stronger and is typically a 4% strength. Obagi Nu-Derm Blender Rx is 4% and most patients see results in around 8 weeks of use. MintRxPharmacy.com is the legitimate place online to buy prescription strength Hydroquinone, and is a fully licensed mail order pharmacy shipping direct to your doorstep!
To get the best results from products containing quinol, sun protection is a key part of your skincare routine. Hydroquinone, or quinol, makes the skin sensitive to the sun’s ultraviolet rays and users are advised to apply the product in the evening when the sun is down. We recommend using Obagi’s specifically formulated sun block in addition to any Hydroquinone products to help ensure extra protection from damaging UV rays, and as a separate product for routine sun protection – a vital part of any skincare routine. Obagi’s Nu-Derm Rx is specifically formulated to treat chloasma, melasma, freckles and other melanin issues. Their prescription product lightens skin hyperpigmentation superbly, revealing evenly-toned, radiant, and consistent skin. The healthy complexion Lisa mentioned in her personal account.
