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.

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.

It really works!!

I received a sample a few months back. I thought I was noticing a difference, but based on amount of sample, I didn’t know for sure if it was working or me imagining it. Fast forward to Jan 26th, I’m having my routine monthly facial. My aesthetician put some salicylic acid on one area of my face aligning the right side of my nose to my laugh line. She did this with my permission. The was suppose to speed up the process to clear up discoloration. Well, let’s just say the discoloration didn’t go away because after my skin peeled I realized the acid burned my skin and left me with really bad brown mark. I felt so stupid and regretted ever doing that, but I was on a mission to get my skin back to normal in that area. I remembered this product and decided I need to get it to see if it will help with my problem. I can say without a doubt this product works. I’ve been using this twice a day since Feb 8th, and it has dramatically reduced the dark area on my face. I truly believe by the end of this month it will be gone. SkinCeuticals is the absolute best in my book!

1st bottle

This product was recommended for me to use by my physician at a laser center. I have sun damage, aging spots and melasma. I have had laser treatments to reduce my dark spots, which has helped maybe 70%. SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense, has taken the discoloration down noticeably from what the laser treatment has done, to where I don't necessarily have to wear heavy cover makeup anymore! It's been a good product to help reduce my dark spots, and I can't wait to see what it will continue to do since I'm only halfway through the first bottle.

SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense

I have been using this product for some time, at least two bottles. It takes time, you have to use it regularly for quite some time, but it really helps with dark spots. The skin just becomes brighter and brighter as you keep using it.

Dark Spot Treatment

I have been using this product for almost 4 weeks. Only using once a day rather than the recommended twice daily. I have noticed some definite lightening of my dark spots that have appeared from previous sun damage. I also like the way this product makes my skin feel. I have dry and maturing skin. Will continue to use and will very likely reorder after I have completed this bottle.

Best product for reducing my dark spots

I’ve used many products over the years to reduce my dark sun spots. I’m very prone to sun spots, and even with diligent sunscreen usage and laser treatments, I still get them on my face. This product has been the best for reducing their appearance and making my whole face a bit brighter. Love it!

NOTICED A DIFFERENCE IMMEDIATELY

Not only is my skin brighter looking, but a week of using it seemed to clear up some blackheads I had on my forehead. Not sure why as it's not an acne medication, but I really love it.

YAAAAAS!

I got a nasal infection 10 years ago, and it left me with a hyperpigmented scar in the middle of my nose between my nostrils. This product is really helping to fade the hyperpigmentation, it is the most effective product I've used to do that. I'm really glad I've found this product.

Another Skinceuticals Gem

This serum really works wonders paired with the other SkinCeuticals products in my regimen. I'm thrilled with the results so far, and I'm sure I'll be reordering in the future!
