Powerful Dark Spot Corrector Serum

Brown Marks

Description Summary How to use Key Ingredients Works Well With

SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense is a new generation, multi-phase, dark spot corrector serum. Using a combination of potent and proven anti-discolouration ingredients to address all types of discolouration including hyperpigmentation, melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).

Key ingredients include a world first in topical home care, Tranexamic Acid, a synthetically-derived ingredient that treats and minimizes the reoccurrence of skin discolouration and stubborn brown patches with continued use. It helps to control pigmentation by inhibiting the release of inflammatory mediators, specifically prostaglandins and arachidonic acid, which are involved in melanogenesis. It works by addressing the appearance of discolouration at its onset. Studies have also demonstrated its ability to address hard-to-treat forms of discolouration including post-acne marks and stubborn brown patches. Kojic Acid, naturally produced by certain fungi, helps to improve skin brightness. Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, is a water-soluble vitamin found naturally in yeast, meat, fish, milk, eggs, green vegetables, beans, and cereal grains. It has been shown to help reduce the appearance of skin discolouration. HEPES is a synthetically-derived acid that activates natural enzymes in the skin to help break the bonds that bind dead skin cells to the surface for even exfoliation. Paraben-free. Fragrance-free. Silicone-free. Gluten-free. Hydroquinone-free.

Dr Webster’s Recommendation: This layerable, daily-use serum targets visible discolouration and helps to brighten skin. Clinical trials show some exciting results for those people with stubborn pigmentation. It is an ideal home-care product to treat these conditions and for the best results, it should be used together with a Vitamin C serum such as SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF or SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic. It is also very important to be meticulous about using a high factor, broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect and prevent UV-induced skin pigmentation.

Ideal for:  Brown Marks Strength: 3% Tranexamic Acid, 1% Kojic Acid, 5% Niacinamide, 5% HEPES Product Size: 30ml SPF: None Application Area:  Face or areas of concern Paraben Free: Yes Use: PM or AM

  • Apply 3-5 drops of Discoloration Defense twice a day after cleansing in the morning and evening.
  • If using a SkinCeuticals antioxidant: CE Ferulic or Phloretin CF in the morning, apply this first and once absorbed apply the Discoloration Defense.
  • If using in the morning, apply after a SkinCeuticals antioxidant and follow with a SkinCeuticals broad-spectrum sunscreen.
  • Limit sun exposure while using this product & always use a good quality, high factor, broad spectrum sunscreen every day - compliancy is vital when treating pigmentation.
  • Do not use on irritated or broken skin. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.

Product Rating:

I’ve used this serum (in conjunction with the Advanced Pigment Corrector) just over a month and I can already see results. My skin feels smooth and much brighter. Pigmentation and brown marks are starting to fade. A remarkable improvement. Thank you for the excellent advice and recommendation.
