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.

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.

              I bought this for my red acne scars that won't go away. I chose this one over the acne serum because it has more active ingredients to promote faster recovery. 4 stars because it worked but I docked one because it never fully dries out. I put this on after washing and toning my face twice a day and it seems like no matter how much time I wait, my moisturizer always pills on top. I'll finish out the bottle but I'll be looking for a new serum after this.

                  I am a 49yr old woman who has age spots on my face. They've bugged me, but have never thought to do anything about it until recently reading reviews of this product. I've been using this nightly for one month and I cannot believe it, but my age spots are noticeably faded. (I took before pictures and compared.)I suspect after a month or two they will be completely faded. I can't believe it- my face looks so much younger and clearer without those spots. I am a happy consumer! Well worth the expense.

                      I have a brown spot on my cheek that showed up while I was pregnant last year and never went away. I've been using this stuff every night religiously for 4 months. Still waiting for some results. I'll finish the bottle because it's expensive and I reallyyyy want it to work...but I've kind of lost hope.
