                I have only been using for a couple weeks but have seen improvement in the pigment of my acne scarring. I have noticed my skin is definitely more even and bright.

                Comments about Proactiv Advanced Dark Spot Correcting Serum:

                I am conservative with money but I did splurge on this product and I'm glad I did. I've had acne on my chin for 15-20 years. Between this product and the emergency blemish product I can now go without make up if I want to. This has helped with the redness I would get after the pimple was gone. GREAT PRODUCT!!!!

                    A:

                    You may use our Advanced Dark Spot Correcting Serum before OR after step 3 in our system, but we would recommend using it between steps 2 and 3. Also, be sure to use with an SPF if you have sun exposure.
