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.

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

              This product is amazing, I was hesitant to buy this due to the price. I am very happy to say it was worth every penny I have been using this product for about a month and my skin is 80% clearer. And trust me when I say I have tried everything to get rid of my acne scars. This product is for hyper pigmentation, freckles and any dark spots but it worked great on my acne scars. If you were interested in buying the product but are skeptical about the price, TRUST ME BUY, BUY, BUY!

                  I got this as a free sample with my last order. What a god-send. I think it was meant to be. I have these 2 very dark sun spots on my face by both eyes and I started to just spot treat those areas with this stuff and within a few days both spots are CONSIDERABLY lighter. I will be buying the full size as my free sample will run out soon.

                      A:

                      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.

                  • Q:

                    How would you use this in conjunction with a retinol product? I was thinking that I would use this at night, under a night cream, but I use a retinol every other night. 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?

                      We do not recommend layering Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum with a retinol product. Dr. Murad says it's best to sue them every other night. Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum one and the next night your retinol product and so on.

                  • Q:

                    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?

                      A:

                      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.
