How long is it safe to use depiwhite cream containing hydroquinone ?

Hi, I was directed by my doctor a year ago to use depiwhite cream, which contains hydroquinone . I used it for 3 weeks and stopped as the pigmentation faded. I started using it again only 2 days ago, application all over my face , as I developed an uneven complexion due to sunburns. I use it overnight. I want to know if this cream has a high percentage of hydroquinone and how long can I use it for and if it has any side effects on the long run

Hi....dear weaam.,
Thanks for choosing HCM.,
DEPIWHITE contains hydroquine which can irritate skin..,
in the long run making it more sensitive and there may be side effects like redness..,
and drying with using depiwhite...,
Otherwise theres no problem...,if you have been using depiwhite for a month..,
or more and have noticed no side effects. ..,
In this case you may continue using it but give your skin a break.....!
so use depiwhite for 3 weeks , then 1 week don't use it...,
Like this...don't get any problem and harm with using of DEPIWHITE..,

Depiwhite should be used doctor's supervision. The doctor will asses as to which areas you need to apply it and for how long.It does have side effects if not used as prescribed.

Kindly meet your dermatologist who will be able to help you better.
