With the HQ/RA 2x a day combo? I mixed it together and I put it on morning and night. Will you lighten and then shed, or does the dark skin have to shed before you see lightening at all?

Somehow, according to the HQ article I posted a link to, the RA & HQ work synergistically to augment eachother's best effects. The derms are not sure how or why this happens; they just have evidence that it does. This is good news for those with stubborn resistant pigmented areas. Some people have a sharp pigment demarcation along the side edge of their feet & hands. Blending that line in can be very tough. Some others have very dark knees, elbows & knuckles that are resistant too. This combo, esp if the person tries the occlusive wrap method they recommend, will really lighten them up.

Depending on the person & the extent of it, it can be noticable, yes. In the first few weeks, I peeled like crazy. THe skin became very dry in some areas (so I'd dab on a little olive oil) & after a steamy shower, it would roll off in a gross mass. Creepy, but good to know it was no longer clinging to my face making it harder for the HQ to penetrate.

What is the occlusive wrap method? What is the best way to do this for the knees and elbows, and do I rub the cream completely in or should it be visible before I wrap?
