SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense 1.0 oz

$98.00
In Stock
Minimum Quantity of 1 Required for Purchase

Product Overview

Reduce the appearance of dark spots with SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense.

Discoloration Defense is a layerable, daily-use dark spot corrector clinically proven to reduce the appearance of key types of skin discoloration, including hard-to-treat forms such as stubborn brown patches, post-inflammatory discoloration, and post-acne marks. Formulated with 3% tranexamic acid, 1% kojic acid, 5% niacinamide, and 5% HEPES, this latest-generation advanced formula improves the appearance of skin discoloration, brightens skin, and evens skin tone in as early as 2 weeks. Everyday elements—including UV exposure, prescription drugs, and some professional treatments—can trigger production of melanin in the skin’s lowest epidermal layers. This excess melanin rises to the surface of the skin, causing visible skin discoloration. Discoloration can manifest in a range of ways, including post-acne marks, and stubborn brown patches on the cheekbones, forehead, and upper lip. Discoloration Defense is a hydroquinone-free skin brightening serum that corrects dark spots using a combination of potent and proven anti-discoloration ingredients—including tranexamic acid—to address key types of skin discoloration. Ideal at-home complement to professional skin discoloration treatments, such as chemical peels or non-ablative laser; always consult with a physician for individual regimen recommendations

In a 12-week clinical study, Discoloration Defense significantly improved the appearance of key skin discoloration markers:

  • 60% average improvement in the appearance of stubborn brown patches
  • 59% average improvement in the appearance of skin discoloration
  • 81% average improvement in the appearance of post-acne marks
  • 59% average improvement in the appearance of even skin tone

Paraben-, fragrance-, silicone-, gluten-, and hydroquinone-free.

Great Product

I had been using retinols routinely but started to switch to glycolic discoloration as well and love the way my face feels and looks with less irritation. Highly recommend this product.

Some improvement

I've been using this product for over a year. I've recently noticed a slight fading of dark patches.

Mild Results

I have been using the SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense for about 2 months. I have seen a mild lightening of the dark areas on my cheeks. The product felt very tacky, which I do not like. I felt it sat on the surface of my skin and did not penetrate it. Possibly used too much resulting in sticky feel? I will not be purchasing another bottle of this product.

Really Good!

I think this product is effective, especially if you are looking for an alternative to hydroquinone.

Discoloration Defense

I’ve just started using this product. So far, I like it, and I’m sure I’ll love it the longer I use it, and it has more time to work. Love their products.

Sold!

I’m a fan of SkinCeuticals serums in general, so its no surprise that I find this one very effective in lightening my sun spots. Have only used it for a month. Two drops is plenty for my cheeks, and I am noticing improvement already. I will be restocking.

Major skin changer

I have sun damage, melasma, and some mild scarring from breakouts, as well as large pores and blackheads (lucky me). I've only been using this for one month and there's a huge difference in pigment and pore size. My pores are shrinking so much, they actually seem to be "ejecting" the blackheads. My skin is pretty sensitive, so I actual buffer by mixing with moisturizer. I was afraid this would render it ineffective but I am still seeing great results and no irritation or breakouts. I've actually been able to wear less makeup and had several people ask what I am using on my skin b/c it looks so good—worth every penny.

The best

I have dark brown spots on one side of my cheek from years of baking in the sun when I was younger. I have tried different products and nothing worked. I’ve been a SkinCeuticals girl for many years now because of the results. I wasn’t disappointed with the discoloration defense. My brown spots have visibly lightened, and my skin looks much more even. I highly recommend. It started working very soon after use.

Did not see a difference

I faithfully used this serum for over 3 months (2x a day), and it did nothing to lighten the sun spots on my face. I also use a sunscreen everyday to go over my whole face, as recommended. Will not buy this again. It was too good to be true.

Helps with dark spots

I have a variety of dark pigments, freckles, melasma, and now recently dermtosis papulose nigra (DPN). SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense was recommended by my dermatologist, and it's helped fade the melasma but not DPN. I continue to use and alternate with two other products, also recommended by my dermatologist.

SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense

I really like this product. I have dealt with stubborn brown spots for awhile now, and this lightened them very quickly. I will continue to use this because it is nice to finally find something that works like it says it will.

Rich serum

My derm recommended this product, and I use it in conjunction with the Obagi system. I've seen my dark spots lighten using it. The serum feels thick and rich when I use it. Love it!

Effective product on new dark spots

I’m on my third bottle and find that it is most effective at lightening new dark spots. I apply them right after getting extractions. I find that the sooner you apply the product, the better the chance you have at completely fading any acne related dark spots. The product hasn’t really done much to lighten age/brown spots or really old acne marks.
