Any new medicine raises lots of new questions and concerns among patients who want to follow the new treatment. Tri-Luma is no exception, and one of the most frequently asked questions is about its efficacy.
Tri-Luma Cream is used to treat moderate-to-severe face melasma for up to 8 weeks.
It is not intended to be used for an extended period of time (more than 8 weeks) or to keep melasma symptoms at bay. Patients in medical studies experienced melasma relief as soon as four weeks after using tri luma cream 15gm. After 8 weeks of treatment with this Tri-Luma cream, the majority of patients saw some improvement. Some people's dark spots completely disappeared, but most people's melasma returned once treatment was discontinued.
If you forget to apply Tri-Luma Cream, do so as soon as possible. If your next dose is approaching, skip the missed dose and resume your regular schedule. Do not increase the dose.
