Dark Spot Treatment We Deliver

Tretinoin: The generic version of Retin-A, tretinoin is the most widely prescribed retinoid that treats signs of skin aging related to sun exposure. Nurx prescribes tretinoin in three strengths. If a patient is new to retinoids they will usually start a patient on the lowest strength and, if desired, switch the patient to a stronger retinoid if the milder retinoid is well-tolerated (meaning it doesn’t cause skin flaking or irritation).

Adapalene: This less irritating retinoid (which has a non-prescription 0.1% strength version called Differin) may be prescribed to people with skin conditions such eczema, or those with very sensitive skin who experience irritation or redness when using tretinoin.

Melasma Treatment We Deliver

Hydroquinone: This prescription cream is the best-studied treatment for melasma. Usually it is prescribed for no longer than 3-6 months, because it can have side effects with prolonged use.

Azelaic Acid: This gel reduces dark spots and skin discoloration, and is sometimes prescribed alongside hydroquinone, or after a patient has already used hydroquinone for 3-6 months and needs to take a break.
