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.
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.
Once you share your health history and pay for your medical consultation, a Nurx healthcare provider will evaluate your skin and determine the right retinoid treatment for you. Then we’ll send a 3-month supply to your door, and send automatic refills for 1 year (but you can put a hold on your medication delivery or cancel any time). These medications are not covered by insurance and only available with out-of-pocket pricing.
We are doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and physician assistants who are passionate about providing patient care. The Nurx medical team believes that everyone deserves access to personalized, non-judgmental healthcare, and that open and honest communication is key. Learn more about our medical team.
