Product Overview

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.

Highlights

  • Corrects sun damage
  • Brightens a dull complexion
  • Corrects dark spots

Not my favorite

I purchased this product in an attempt to lighten my melasma spots - they’re particularly bad this year (even with regular sunscreen application!). I’ve been using it as directed for 3-4 weeks now & haven’t noticed any improvement. Given that my spots are darker than usual - I know that it may take a little longer to improve but so far, I’m not too excited about the product given its claims to show improvement in 2 weeks & its price point. I’ve tried other products that were more effective within this timeframe.

Wow!

I am only a few weeks in with this product and all I can say is WOW! I don't know if it's in my head, but my melasma was so bad after summer and seems much better in a short time. The effect thus far is equivalent to a SkinCeuticals med grade chem peel, without the pain. Recommend!

Not a Necessity

I tried out this serum to help with my topical treatment for some discoloration I have. I don't think it's a necessity. All my skin needs is a topical fade cream, Vitamin C, and retinol (PM). I will not repurchase after I run out.

Waiting for results

I love SkinCeuticals products, I have been using this product for about 3 months. I haven't notice much of a difference but I will continue to use for at least 6 months to see if I notice any results.

Some change but not the results I was hoping for

For the price, I expected to see some brown spots fade; I really haven't noticed a dramatic difference. It does help with overall skin tone, however.

NADA

I have just finished my first bottle and I have seen no improvement at all in discoloration on my skin. It almost looks to me like it is getting worse since I discontinued using another brand to try this one.

Discoloration defense

I have noticed clearer brighter skin in just a few weeks. I do use it with Metacell Renewal which is also supposed to help with my hyperpigmentation concerns. All you need is three drops.

Great product for dark spots.

I recently got introduced to this a couple months ago, I use in Am & Pm. After a couple weeks, started to notice the dark spots on my face were lighter. I am excited to see what the look like in a few months. Works Great.

Great product to add to your routine

I like layering this product on top of my vitamin c to help with skin discoloration. I have been using it since pregnancy, since my skin developed a bit of melasma and I feel like it helped a lot. It does not irritate my skin at all and absorbs very well. II am still using it to prevent further skin discoloration and it is a great compliment to my skin routine.

Takes a while but it works!

My dermatologist recommended this to even out my skin tone. There were dark spots and discoloration. I followed the am & pm use for about a month and it does really work. I stopped for a little while but my skin tone was getting blotchy again so I went back to twice a day and it is evening out. I can now go with a very light makeup which is so nice in the summer.

It Takes Time

SkinCuticals Discoloration Defense is a very carefully formulated product, without carcinogens, to lighten brown spots. I find the brown spots on my face, neck and chest continuing to fade and expect them to be completely gone within the next month. Please be aware that brown spots are difficult to completely disappear, so be patient and keep applying product morning and night. I find that my foundation cream completely covers them now.

Good

I’ve been using this product for almost a year now and like how it brightens the complexion so that it is glowing the next morning. I have sensitive skin and haven’t had any issues with this product, which is great. However I can’t say the changes to my dark spots are as significant as I would’ve liked after using it for so long.
