What is Demelan Cream?
Demelan Cream is a combination medication containing the active ingredients glycolic acid, arbutin and kojic acid and is considered a depigmenting cream. The medication works as a whitening agent used in the treatment of dark skin discoloration disorders such as hyperpigmentation and melasma. The cream also works as an exfoliant to remove dead skin cells that have been aggregated on the skins surface area to help diminish fine lines, wrinkles, pores and other aging signs to improve the appearance and texture of the skin.

How is Demelan Cream used?
Demelan Cream should be applied topically once every second day for the first week, then once or twice per day or as otherwise directed by a doctor. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patient's condition and their response to the therapy. Apply a small amount of the cream to the affected area and gently massage it in until it disappears. Treatment should be continued until the treated area is the same color as the rest of the body.

Adverse effects
Patients using the Demelan Cream may encounter unwanted side effects such as:

  • Dry skin
  • Irritation, burning or stinging at application site
  • Itchy skin

Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.

Avoid applying to the eyelids, external corners of the nose or mouth and broken or irritated skin. It should also be used in combination with a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 15 during the treatment and continued for a week after discontinuation of the medication.

Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.

Demelan Cream is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.

The correct dosage and prescription commonly depend on the patient and the condition being treated. Do not adjust your dosage without the approval of your health care provider. This product is only for use as prescribed and instructed.
