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.

                        • Q:

                          what is the difference between this and the murad Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel? I am of African descent and have dark spots left from poking my pimples (whoops) and would like to get rid of them fast. can either of the products work?

                          Also, I have dark spots on my chest. so, would I put the product on face and chest or face, neck and chest?

                          thanks

                            There are just a few formula differences but I would recommend the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum. And yes it can be applied to your face, neck and chest. But keep in mind, when you are using this product you must be diligent with using a daily daytime moisturizer.

                            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.
