Frequently Asked Questions
Januluma cream is also effective for lightening and removing spots on hands, feet, elbows, scars and burns. But it has no effect on stains resulting from the aging process or darkening of the genital and bikini area. In the case of dark underarms, considering the exfoliation and inflammation that occurs when using Januluma, and considering that underarm skin is prone to injury and scarring due to sweating conditions, it is better not to use it.
These cases are among the side effects of the active ingredients in Januluma cream. To reduce side effects such as dryness, skin peeling and itching, it is better to use a moisturizing and hydrating cream and a mild detergent and sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and with sufficient protection against UVA.
People who have skin redness after using the cream every night, can reduce the use of the drug to every other night.
Sunscreen with SPF higher than 30, with adequate protection against UVA and preferably colorless should be used. Moisturizers and moisturizers suitable for sensitive skin should also be used. Using sunscreen is one of the essential aspects of Melasma treatment.
Januluma cream should not be used in active acnes. In addition, tretinoin is one of the active ingredients of januluma, so it should not be used simultaneously with those anti-acne compounds.
The treatment period with Januluma cream is 8 weeks every night, and after the completion of the treatment period, it is recommended twice a week as a maintenance treatment.
How to use: First, clean the face or stained area and apply a thin layer of cream on the desired area half an hour before going to bed. In the morning, wash your face with a mild cleanser and use a suitable sunscreen and moisturizer. In situations where people’s skin is very sensitive, according to the doctor’s opinion, you can wash your face with water and mild cleanser at night for a maximum of 3 hours after using Januluma cream so that the medicine does not remain on the skin until morning. Sometimes, some doctors prefer to start using Januluma every other night and then use it every night for up to eight weeks.
Januluma cream should be stored in a refrigerator at a temperature of 2 to 8 degrees Celsius. If by mistake the cream stays at room temperature for a while, if no color change is observed in the cream, the product is not oxidized and can be consumed. If a dark color change is observed in the product or the consistency of the cream changes, it should not be used. Moving Januluma in about 2 hours from the pharmacy to home or on a city trip will not destroy it, and there is no need to use ice.
If it is used for an area that does not have an active acne, it is safe to use.
No. It is forbidden to use Januluma cream during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
During treatment, exposure to sunlight, solar lamp, ultraviolet light, and tanning of the treated area should be avoided. Patients who are constantly exposed to sunlight due to work conditions should use sunscreen and protective covering (such as a hat).
Due to the exfoliating properties of this drug, which may cause thinning and inflammation of the treated skin, it is better to stop using the drug for at least a week and then use laser methods.
Clean the affected area with a tissue and rinse the residue with good water. Do not try to remove the medicine with the tongue or by swallowing.
Accidental contact of Januluma cream with the eye causes inflammation and moderate itching. After contact with the eyes, do not rub the eyes and immediately wash the eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. While washing, open and close the eyes several times to ensure sufficient washing. See a doctor if eye inflammation persists.
If the medicine is swallowed by the patient, a large amount of water or milk should be fed to him immediately to dilute the amount of active ingredients. Then go to the hospital immediately. Do not induce vomiting in any way.
