What is Metastar-ht Cream used for?
Metastar-HT Cream is a topical skin cream used to treat melasma, a chronic skin disorder characterised by symmetrical, blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation.  Melasma is caused by over production of melanin by the pigment-producing cells melanocytes.  It is thought to have a genetic predisposition and may be triggered by various factors including sun exposure, pregnancy, hormone treatments, some toiletries, and hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone).  Metastar -HT Cream is a combination treatment that lightens the skin and reduces the risk of dermatitis, inflammation of the skin that can be associated with using skin lighteners alone to treat Melasma.

 

How does Metastar-ht Cream work?

  • Metastar-HT Cream contains a combination of medications that are used together to treat the chronic skin disorder melasma.  The production of melanin is controlled by the enzyme tyrosine, which is found in the melanosomes of melanocytes. 
  • Hydroquinone in Metastar-HT Cream is a tyrosinase inhibitor that works by blocking the action of tyrosinase, which inhibits the formation of melanin by melanocytes.  It also increases the breakdown of melanosomes that contain the melanin.
  •   As the amount of melanin produced decreases the darkened skin gradually lightens to match normal skin colour.  Tretinoin in Metastar-HT Cream is an active metabolite of Vitamin A and is a keratolytic medication that works by binding to specific retinoic acid receptors in the nucleus of skin cells and affects the way skin cells behave, which regulates cell growth and differentiation; it also has anti-inflammatory properties.  Tretinoin is thought to act by enhancing skin epithelial cell proliferation and accelerating epithelial differentiation; it also blocks the hardening processes of the outer skin layer (keratinisation and cornification) and increases the shedding of old hardened skin cells, while at the same time promoting growth of new skin cells. 
  • The combined effect of these actions is to speed up skin cell turnover which has the effect of lightening the skin. Metasar-HT Cream also contains the synthetic corticosteroid mometasone, which is a medium potency anti-inflammatory that is often used for topical application as it concentrates in the skin but does not enter the blood circulation and, therefore, has minimal systemic effect. 
  • Mometasone in Metasar-HT Cream works by blocking the production of inflammatory chemicals, like prostaglandins and leukotrienes; and also narrows and constricts causes blood vessels that have become dilated (widened) and leaky allowing other inflammatory cells into the skin to escalate the inflammatory response.  The antiinflammatory actions of Mometasone in Metastar-HT Cream reduce the risk of developing contact dermatitis that may be caused by hydroquinone and tretinoin. 
  • This combination of medications for treatment of melasma has been found to provide better improvement than treatment with a single medication.
