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

Excellent product

I have been using SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense for the past three years and it has been making a difference in evening out my skin tone.

Just okay

I've been using this product for about 6 weeks and started to notice that my skin overall looked better and notice some spot fading, but I haven't notice and huge changes in my discoloration.

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.

Excellent dark spot remover for light skin

This product starting lessening my facial dark spots on day one and has continued doing so each day (week 4 now). I have tried several other brands in this price range, but they stopped working after about 2 weeks. The free sample SOLD me!

Wow!!

I have used the Discoloration Defense for almost two full weeks now and I am in amazement how one of my most stubborn dark spots is being reduced, day by day. I really did not think it was possible for a serum to do what it has.

SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense

This product really works but is somewhat harsh on my extremely sensitive skin. I use it in conjunction with CeFerulic, but cannot use the discoloration defense on a daily basis. I use it once every 3-4 days. This may cause it to work slower than it would for someone whose skin can tolerate everyday use.

Will buy and buy again

Pretty sure this stuff works because when I got lazy during the pandemic & quit using it, my melasma got worse.. I like that it goes on easily, non-greasy, and has no smell. Make-up goes well on top of this. I use it every morning and most nights. Great alternative to hydroquinone.

Love this!

So happy I added this to my skincare routine! It's definitely improved my discoloration, but don't expect results overnight.

Skinceuticals Discoloration Defense

This product is one of the best ones I’ve used for melasma. It’s decreased in size and mostly color in a few weeks.

Skinceuticals Discoloration Defense

Since I just purchased this item, I can’t really review. However, I am looking forward to see if my dark spot will lighten over the next couple of months. If it does, I will be a faithful customer.

Works well to lighten hyperpigmentation

I started using this a little over a year ago at the recommendation of my esthetician. I have significant hyperpigmentation on my forehead and cheeks from years in the sun. This product has helped to lighten these spots greatly over time - I have received comments from family and friends noticing how much these spots have lightened - although they are not completely gone.
