In most cases, lightening of skin should be seen after 4 weeks of treatment. Sometimes it may take longer to see any change but if no bleaching effect is seen after 3 months of treatment, you should stop using hydroquinone.
Side effects may include mild burning, stinging, itching, redness, or irritation of treated skin.
