Medical Description

Skin Shine cream is used to treat & prevent moderate to severe melasma (dark and discoloured patches on the skin) to lighten the skin tone or appearance and senile lentigines (dark spots or age spots

in older people due to exposure to the sun). It is a topical preparation containing a combination of three medicines - Mometasone, Tretinoin and Hydroquinone. Skin shine cream suppresses pigmentation's metabolic process, leading to scars or blemishes. This helps lightens the skin tone; however, the process is reversible. In melasma, brown patches appear on the face. Most prominently, the patches occur on the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead. Change in hormone levels during pregnancy and exposure to the sun can cause this condition. It is more likely that women will develop this condition than men. Patients must avoid sun exposure immediately after applying the cream, as this will reverse the effect of the cream and will cause repigmentation. Do not use Skin Shine cream for a prolonged duration unless prescribed by your dermatologist, as it contains a steroid. Skin Shine cream is for external use only. You may experience some application site reactions as side effects, but they usually fade with time. Please report to your doctor if you notice the side effects persist or worsen. Do not apply to open wounds or weeping areas. Before using, wash and dry the area gently. Apply a thin film to the affected area and rub it gently and thoroughly until the medication vanishes. Avoid direct sunlight or use sunblock or protective clothing to prevent repigmentation.
