Triluma has a steroid in it! It thins skin over time... so please be cautious, and try other methods first, unless in a time crunch, and/or have thick, thick skin that you don't mind thinning... ;)

Actually, TriLuma is FDA approved for up to 52 weeks of continual usage with no atrophy, or thinning, observed. This is probably due to the Tretinoin, or Retin -A, causing collagen growth. Also, did you know that the steroid also helps get rid of the pigment. Most people assume it is in there to control irritation from tretinoin, but it actually prevents the cell from secreting color outside to surrounding cells. It is also the ONLY FDA approved product containing Hydroquinone in the US. Obagi has never submitted safety or efficacy studies for FDA approval. It was just grandfathered in, as hydroquinone has been around before the FDA was conceived. If the FDA rules against hydroquinone and these companies for not submitting evaluations, TriLuma could be the only product left on the market.

well, trilumafan, you are wrong -1. obagi IS ABSOLUTELY FDA approved.
2. Yes, the steroids can help slow pigment secretion, but it DOES thin the skin. That is a proven fact. Studies done and paid for JUST by the company that manufactures them are not convincing enough for me. As a responsible seller/representative of TriLuma (as you must be), you certainly should push safety first - if someone can use retin-a and 4% HQ alone, why would you push a steroid on them?
