How it works

What is Strut Melasma Formula?

Strut Melasma Formula is a physician and pharmacist formulated blend of medications that target the main symptoms of Melasma. This treatment may help lighten darkened or hyperpigmented areas, reduce redness and swelling, prevent the formation of excess melanin in skin, and increase healthy cell turnover.

How does Strut Melasma Formula work?

Strut Melasma Formula combines prescription and non-prescription ingredients in a pharmaceutical-grade cream base to help reduce the appearance of Melasma. Hydrocortisone is a mild topical steroid that helps locally with inflammation, redness, itching, and swelling. Hydroquinone is a topical lightening agent which may help prevent the formation of excess melanin in skin. Kojic acid is an agent found in mushrooms that may help lighten skin when applied topically. Tretinoin is a derivative of vitamin A found to increase healthy cell turnover which helps reduce the appearance of dark spots.

What is a compounded medication?

A compounded medication is a prescription that is mixed up specifically for you based on your doctor’s request for specific strengths, ingredients, and dosage forms. Compounded medications are not manufactured, but made in compounding pharmacies by U.S. licensed pharmacists and pharmacy technicians that follow a formula ‘recipe’ customized to your condition to create an individualized medication for you.
