Benoquin Cream (Generic)
Generic Benoquin Cream (Monobenzone) is used to permanently lighten skin in people with Vitiligo. Unlike any other skin lightening cream, Generic Benoquin Cream treats Vitiligo and improves your skin color permanently and quickly! Order it here for a fraction of the regular price!
Generic Benoquin Cream is also marketed as monobenzone topical.
*Benoquin Cream® is manufactured by Valeant Pharmaceuticals International.
Generic Benoquin Cream works by increasing elimination of melanin (pigment molecules) from skin cells. Depigmenting darker skin around the areas of vitiligo helps even out coloring and appearance of the skin.
Use exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.
Generic Benoquin Cream is usually applied 2 or 3 times per day. Apply in a thin layer to the pigmented skin areas and rub in gently.
Exposing the treated areas to sunlight should be avoided since ultraviolet radiant tends to neutralize the depigmentation action of the drug.
After the desired depigmentation is obtained, apply the cream only as necessary to maintain the results, treatment may be as infrequent as two applications per week.
