1 Mequinol my theory on Fri Apr 30, 2010 5:25 am

Hi everyone, please don’t take this as fact but I have a theory that why Mequniol might not cause patches.

I have been using monobenzone for sometime now, at first I only applied monobenzone cream, and my body was patch work, since I started using Retin a, the patches are not that clear, somehow the distribution of monobenzone on my body is more even. I am only using 0.025% of retin a now, every day before my monobenzone cream.

Now my theory is, if it works like that with mono, which itself very fast drug compared to mequinol, how would it work with with mequinol, which works in slower pace, and with aid of retin a at high strength, it should produce amazing results, that why a lot of people say they don’t see patches as most use it with retin a.Please don’t take my theory as fact, I am only sharing my observation with my own experience

That's an interesting theory and it sounds quite plausible. It's amazing what benefits topical vitamin A has for the skin and how it aides the lightening and exfoliating process.

From what I understand, Retin A aids in the fast absorption of other products such as MQ or H. Cell turnover should be fast and seeing that we shed and re-grow outer skin every 27 days it should be about half that time, lets say 14 days. Your theory sounds about right, seeing that Retin A will remove dead skin cells making way for the product to work faster and better. .1% of Retin A is recommended for use on tougher areas such as knees and elbows. I mix the .1% with whatever product I'm using.

I believe this to also be true, as retin-a speeds the skin cell turnover at a faster rate as mentioned. Question, do you think the higher the strength of retin-a, then the faster the lightening or depigmenting of the skin (depending which product is being used)?

It is definitely the case, the higher the strength the more powerful the mix will be, but you have to listen to your skin and not over do things.

I agree.
