Kligman's Face Cream Overview Kligman's Face Cream is an effective skin care product. It is a product that is manufactured to help clear the marks left by scars and reduce skin discolorations. These discolorations may be acquired through medical adoption, skin problems and due to hormonal imbalances.
Kligman's formula for pigmentation treatment is a cream that consists of 3 active ingredients – hydroquinone, tretinoin and a steroid. As you can see, Kligman's formula is very similar to Tri-Luma. The original Kligman's formula consists of hydroquinone 5%, tretinoin 0.1%, and dexamethasone 21-acetate 0.1%.
Kligman's triple combination formula has been one of the most popular treatment options in melasma over the last three decades. The original Kligman's formula has been modified in many ways over the years and the most recent modification that has been introduced is a triple combination of 2% hydroquinone, 0.025% tretinoin, and 1% mometasone.
"The gold standard for topical treatment of pigmentation is prescription-strength hydroquinone in combination with vitamin A derivative tretinoin and an anti-inflammatory steroid in a mixture known as 'Kligman's formulation,'" explains dermatologist, Stefanie Williams, MD. However you can get over-the-counter options that give results.
Hydroquinone: The cream contains 3% of this skin lightening substance. As a skin bleaching ingredient, hydroquinone is said to lighten facial scars and other blemishes. In addition to that, it can also help in diminishing the appearance of freckles, sun spots, age spots and dark skin that is caused by hormonal damage or pregnancy mask.
