Apply Ultraquin topically in the morning
and at bedtime or as directed by a physician to
areas you wish to depigment. Application should be
restricted to areas no larger than face, or neck, or
hands and arms. Do not apply near eyes and cuts,
after shaving or using a depilatory, over sunburn or
irritated skin. Skin discolourations usually begin to
lighten or fade after a few weeks of treatment.
However, it is important to continue daily treatment
for up to 12 weeks since depigmenting is a very
gradual process. If results are not satisfactory after
12 weeks of treatment, consult your physician.
As soon as sufficient lightening is obtained, apply
Ultraquin only as needed to maintain skin free of

Before treatment, test for sensitivity by
applying Ultraquin to a small patch of unbroken skin
(one cm square). Commence treatment if no redness
occurs in 24 hours. Discontinue treatment if irritation
or allergic response develops. Ultraquin
should not be used on children under 12. Sunlight or
