Key Ingredients

  • Hydroquinone

    For over forty years, dermatologists have treated dark spots with this gold standard ingredient to help regulate melanin production. 2% concentration is approved by the FDA for over-the-counter-use, while 4% requires a prescription.

  • Retinol or Retinoic Acid

    Retinoids improve the results of Hydroquinone by accelerating cell turnover, evening skin tone and enhancing radiance. Additionally, the multitasking benefits of Retinol include refined skin texture and reduction in the appearance of fine lines.

  • Vitamin C & E

    When combined, Vitamin C & E are a powerful pair. Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant, improves the results of hydroquinone by evening skin tone and brightening skin radiance. But remember, the type of Vitamin C is very important—read more here.

  • Arbutin

    Obtained from the leaves of Ligonberry, Arbutin has been proven in clinical studies to support normal melanin production and reduce the appearance of dark spots.

  • Licorice Extract

    Licorice Extracts have been used for many years to reduce the appearance of dark spots and improve the skin tone. Additionally, the active agents contain flavonoids.

  • Kojic Acid

    Broadly used throughout Asia to address melasma, Kojic Acid binds copper in the skin to disrupt melanin production. Due to its highly effective properties, it can also be irritating when properly formulated.

SkinPhysiology

Melanin gives your skin color and is produced to varying degrees by Melanocytes at the base of the epidermis (top layer of skin). Melanin is then carried to the surface in new skin cells.

Melanin acts as a UV umbrella by filtering the sun’s harmful radiation. When exposed to UV rays, most skin types respond by producing high levels of Melanin for increased protection. We see this as tanning or darkening of skin tone. However, a Melanocyte can produce too much Melanin, resulting in a dark spot—caused by either permanent damage to the Melanocyte or a temporary response from inflammation or hormone fluctuations.

SkinCareTips

The go-to dermatologist approach to addressing dark spots is to: (a) normalize the production of melanin with an ingredient like Hydroquinone and (b) increase cell turnover—to push dark spots to the surface faster—with ingredients like Retinol and Alpha Hydroxy Acids.

Additionally, potent antioxidants can be used to help restore and calm the skin while evening skin tone.

Remember, even with the most effective dark spot protocols, sun exposure will draw the dark spots out again. Thus, it’s imperative to use a sunscreen to protect and maintain your results.
