Hyperpigmentaion Answer!

By Chrisy

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum:

I have hyperpigmentaion that I could only traditionally treat with a rx. The hastle of going to and paying for the dr visit just became too much of an inconvenience. I used a 7 day sample of this product and saw an obvious diff in my skin. My dark spots faded considerably, but my skin was not bleached, hard product to find for African American skin. My bare face and make up look so much more fresh after litterally, 7 days. Purchasing tmrw for routine use!

Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum:

I have had age spots since my last kid at 35. I am now 43 and they got worst. I started using Murad 3 months ago and didn't see major results right away but after the 2nd month I noticed my spots lightning and now almost gone. I have a few stubborn spots and I don't use everyday. I will continue until I get the results I'm looking for. I highly recommend!

      Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum:

      This costs a pretty penny, but it's worth it. I started off with the trial size and went ahead with the full size once I ran out. I use it at night after I wash my face. (I use the 3 step program from Proactiv and use this on top of that without any problems). I purchased this to help lighten dark spots from previous acne and have seen a noticeable difference. The more consistent I am, the better the results. Obviously.

        Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum:

        I use this serum every night under my anti wrinkle serum and moisturizer. I had major patches of browned skin from the sun on my forehead- so noticeable people always thought that they were bruises under my makeup. Within a week and a half, the spots are nearly all the way gone! I've gotten IPL laser treatments for $160. This seems to work just as well for $100 less! Extremely pleased with the effectiveness of this product.

        Brightens Acne Scars/Dark Spots

          Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum:

          So I am a professional and was given a sample to try out this product. I have had cystic acne (also known as hidradenitis suppurativa) which has plagued me in the bikini line area. I have been working on controlling the acne and noticed I have bruise like dark marks along with scarring in that area. Being newly single, I want that area to look as nice as possible incase of any encounters. I have been using this for 3 weeks and in the first week I noticed the skin brighten up. I still have some of my dark marks but it has made the area look so much better (more youthful even).

          I know there are ladies who are middle aged that are looking to lighten up that area as well and I will say it works great, just don't get it too close to the mucus membranes.

              Yes, unfortunately pigmentation can appear in our early twenties. Along with the serum be sure to use a SPF everyday.

            Is this product ok to use for people between the ages of 18-25? I am 22 years old and want to make sure that it is safe to use on my skin. I mainly want to use it as a preventative measure to prevent sun spots and aging and to even out my skin tone and remove acne scars. Thank you.

              A:

              Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum is safe for a 22yr old. Not so much for prevention but best if used to even skin tone. But make sure to use a SPF everyday when using this product for best results.

            Can this be used with the Murad acne clearing solution? And if so what order does it need to be applied?

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              Yes they can both be part of your daily regimen. Use the Acne Clearing Solution during the day followed by a sunscreen then Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum at night followed with a nighttime moisturizer.

              A:

              If you have a history of skin lifting during waxing I would suggest avoiding application around the brow area at least one week prior and a few days post.

            Would this product be good for someone with acne prone skin or will it break me out?

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              There are so many variables when it comes to acne. Although there are no comedogenic ingredients in the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum but if you are prone to break outs anything new you add to your regimen could spark a break out.

          • Q:

            What is the amount of glycolic acid in the serum?
            Asked on 8/3/2017 by mrsedge2009 from Boise, ID

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              The percentage is considered proprietary information but what I can share with you is that Dr. Murad creates formulas based on a result not a percentage. Our products are designed to treat a specific concern within the skin. We do state however that we follow Cosmetic Ingredient Review Board's (CIR) guidelines in regards to AHA (Glycolic and Lactic Acid) percentages and pH levels for safety. The guidelines are as follows:
              Retail products will have up to 10% and not be lower than pH 3.5.

            I'm a 21 year old and have noticed lots of sun spots and post acne marks on my face. I also have hyperpigmentation (birthmark) on my face and was wondering if this will be good for lightening them, especially the birthmark?

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum would most likely not affect your birthmark. Because of the glycolic acid in the formula, it could brighten the skin over the birthmark but it wouldn't truly change it.
