    I had terrible hyper-pigmentation on my forehead, nose and cheeks(thanks to the EVIL tanning beds). I am in week 6 of using Tri-Luma. It was worth the money. I have noticed the fine lines have disappeared and the brown patches are almost gone. I have a few stubborn spots, but the embarrassment of the discoloration, is fading with the fading of the melasma. I plan to use it for the full 8 weeks ... Show Full Comment

    I noticed brown spots on my cheeks and dark coloration on the skin above my upper lip, which is very embarrassing because from far away and in certain lighting, it looked like a mustache. I have been using this cream for about 4 weeks and have noticed a difference. The first week of using it, the area of skin I applied it to started to peel. This only lasted for 2 or 3 days, I just kept using the ... Show Full Comment

    I am about to enter week 4 and all of the lighter patches of pigmentation (left over from a bad birth control experiment) are gone. A few stubborn spots remain, but are far lighter than they were. I'll probably stop after week 4 then do another go around in a few months to use the rest of the cream up. Seems a shame to waste such expensive cream and even if I have no further improvement in the ... Show Full Comment

    I've used Tri-luma for eight weeks and it lightened the very dark brown pathes on my cheeks quite a bit so that I didn't look scary anymore, however once I stopped using it, the spots started to darken again. Also, I'm a medium complexion African-American woman and the medication lighted in areas I wish it hadn't. It made my complexion still discolored but lighter. How long is t ... Show Full Comment
