Ask a Question
85% of Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum users saw spots lighten in just 1 week.* Hydroquinone fades dark spots, age spots and freckles while Hexapeptide-2, an advanced skin-lightening peptide helps even skin tone. Glycolic acid exfoliates to remove dead skin cells, helping the active ingredient to penetrate quickly for faster results.

Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum is recommended as the Step 2 treatment in any Murad Environmental Shield regimen, and targets dark spots and skin discoloration as part of Dr. Murad's Inclusive Health system of care.

        Less than a week I can already see a HUGE difference in my hyperpogmentation and acne marks. I have had one hyperpigmentation spot that I had since February and after using Murad serum I actually see it lightening up now. My face looks more toned too. So glad I went with this, and it's not too abrasive for my sensitive skin

              I have lots of sun spots and freckles. Saw Shayla from youtube using this and I thought I'd give it a try. Expensive but hopefully it's worth it! I can't wait to see how my skin changes if any.

                I just bought this a week ago. It says 85% say results in one week...was hoping to be one of the 85%. So far I don't see any results. I am going to obviously use the product until it is gone and hope that it works because I can't afford to have bought something that was not effective. So holding out hope still

                      A:

                      Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum is designed to use all over the face but if you like it is ok to just apply onto the pigmented areas. Just some added information on hydroquinone, since 1982, hydroquinone has been recognized as safe and effective by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as an OTC (over the counter) topical agent used to reduce hyperpigmentation.

                    How long does the product stay good for? If I buy a backup, but still have half a bottle, will the new one last that long or is it recommended to purchase it only if you intend to use it immediately?

                      That's a great idea. When you purchase your back up please take a look at the back of the box and you'll see an expiration date.
