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.

*In a Murad sponsored study. Individual results will vary. Study results on file.

                          Sometimes oxygen can get in the bottle and oxidize (change) the color. The serum is still good to use.

                          If you are a long time user of retin a (have used it for 6 months - 1 year) then you can use your retin a at night and Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening during the day.
                          If you are new to using retin a we do not recommend using Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening and we do not recommend layering them.

Would it be OK if I put it under the retinol too, or should I just use it on the nights that I wear night cream?

                        I'm looking to try the T-Zone Pore Refining Serum for my large pores, my skin is slightly dry after cleansing. Would it be safer to use the products separately or can I double up at night with a heavier nighttime moisturizer and use the T-Zone Pore Refining Serum in the morning with a good SPF moisturizer?

                          It is safer to use the products separately. Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum is very active and we do not recommend layering it with another serum. Use it at night and use the T-Zone Pore Refining Serum during the day.
