Most Helpful Positive Review Definitely helps fade marks, not a miracle worker
First things first: I have suffered from acne and hyperpigmentation since I was around 13/14 years old. When I hit 24 I had had enough, after trying everything; contraceptive pills, antibiotics, over the counter stuff, prescription topical treatments - you name it, I tried it. Getting rid of the hyperpigmentation was often harder than getting rid of the actual spots. Once I felt like my skin was under control more and was working on fading the pigmentation, more acne would crop up so it was an endless, horrible cycle. I ended up going on a course of Accutane which finished in January 2020 and tbh it changed my life. My skin is so nice now that I barely wear makeup on my face after years of hating how I looked and being obsessed with covering myself in foundation and I have no regrets, only that I wish I had done it years before! People who have never had skin issues severely underestimate the toll it takes on your mental health and self-esteem, and it's great to see companies coming up with innovative ways to help people deal with acne and hyperpigmentation. Fast forward to about end of August, I suddenly feel one of those big, painful, red, under-the-skin cystic spots coming up on my chin/jawline area - my first in months (maybe because of wearing masks!). I was so annoyed and I just knew it would leave a mark. I remembered seeing adverts for the Hyperfade stickers on Instagram so I looked at the website and reviews and they all seemed positive which gave me hope. CONS: they are quite expensive. I managed to find a discount code so they were about ¬£24, but that's still ¬£2 per sticker - not great if you're on a budget. They also come wrapped in (what I think is) excessive amounts of plastic packaging. Each one is on a small paper sheet, inside hard plastic casing, wrapped in a sachet. I feel like cosmetics and skincare companies should know much better by now, and I would like to see less plastic or biodegradable packaging. Maybe there is a reason for the excessive packaging, but I don't see why they can't just be on one sheet like other acne sticker brands I've used. PROS: definitely helps reduce redness dramatically, and now I have finished using all 12 over a few weeks, I can see a big difference. The mark left behind from the big spot on my chin is definitely smaller and less red and therefore much easier to cover up with a small amount of concealer. It seems to speed up the healing process, so after just a few weeks it looks as if it's several months old. For me, it wasn't a miracle worker and the pigmentation is definitely there, but from just the first sticker the redness was definitely reduced by a lot and I was pleasantly surprised by that. They also stay on very well when wearing them overnight and didn't slide off in my sleep. I can't comment on how well they work on old hyperpigmentation as I've only used them on this one specific area, but for older marks I use a Neutrogena dark spot corrector which works well. Would I buy them again? Probably yes. I think these are a good thing to have in the house for when those pesky spots that you can tell will leave a mark crop up, but the price point means they're maybe not so accessible for those on low incomes or teenagers. If you're struggling with acne and hyperpigmentation, I would recommend seeing a dermatologist, but these stickers are also a good option, especially when used as part of a skincare routine specifically designed for acne-prone skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review Ineffective
I've used about 7 of these over 4 days on a dark spot that was a pimple. The pimple had gone away and the skin healed. I saw these had just come out and thought I'd give it a try about a week later. No change. Dark spot is still there. Maybe it got lighter but not noticeably so.
It's very expensive for what you get. I can't justify the cost. Also, I can't help but cringe every time I think of the packaging. It's insanely wasteful.

Crazy expensive for what you get and did not see much any difference in my post inflammatory hyperpigmentation from using these. I would not recommend them sadly because I do love the original zitstikas. I believe there is more products out there that have just as good or even better ingredients for a fraction of the price. Don't recommend wasting your money on these.

Im sorry but these things are TINY!!! For the price thats crazy i don't know what else to say LOL. I just was not expecting them to be so small.
Faded dark spot
Amanda from KCMO
I randomly got a dark spot on my cheek that was super noticeable. I got these and after the first few uses didn't notice anything, but kept using them anyway. This is a product you have to be consistent with! Once I kept using them I started to notice my dark spot fading and it seemed like it was working even after taking the sticker off. I used consistently for about 6 weeks and my spot is basically gone. Definitely recommend!!
Luisa from Undisclosed
I have very persistent dark spots that haven't gone away even after several applications of Hyperfade, but I did notice some difference. I will continue to use Hyperfade and hopefully it will eventually rid me of all these pesky dark spots. My only "complaint" is that it is very expensive for the amount of patches you get in a pack. A larger pack with more patches where you can save some money would be great.
Kara from Undisclosed
I love these. They definitely fade spots after a couple uses.
It does the job
Khalid from Undisclosed
I was skeptical at first but it really clears up my acne scars and brown spots. I have used it a few times. It works well and I don't get a bad reaction. Nice to know that I can use this product and it is available when necessary. Affordable for what it does.
It just fades away.......
Caron from Undisclosed
Hyoerfade dos an awesome job of helping that last remnant of your acnes zit vanish into the background. Easily applied at nite, by morning it looks much lighter and blends better into your skin. thumbs up!!!
It really works!

Lightened up my scars overnight.
Doris from Undisclosed
These hyperfade patches really do fade scars and dark spots nicely! Took away a star because there's just so much packaging. Each patch is individually packaged, with the sticker peels, plastic casing, and sealed plastic wrapper. But otherwise, this product does work as advertised :)
Seems to help

Seems to help fade acne scars faster.
Hyperfade Stickers WORK!
Natalia from Undisclosed
Whenever I get a pimple, the dark brown spot stays for weeks, and at worst, months afterwards! I was skeptical to try but I took the plunge. These things actually work! After a few applications the spots COMPLETELY vanished. Do not wait to get these and feel confident again!!
Effective & Easy
Lena from Undisclosed
I used these on a dark patch of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation that I developed after a laser treatment for a sunspot. Spoiler, the laser treatment only made it worse, so I'm trying to get rid of the now darker and larger spot by other means. I started with minimal expectations since this product is not necessarily made for this purpose. Using these patches I noticed the spot fading after one box, combined with other topical treatments. I will likely purchase again because it seems to speed the process.
Results noticed after 1 use
CJ from Undisclosed
Impressive fading of dark spots noticed after only one application of the product. Looking forward to seeing results after repeated use!
Kara from Undisclosed
While the results aren't immediate, with consistency, you'll see the dark spots do fade.
k. from Undisclosed
They are not a miracle overnight treatment, but they do fade the spots over the course of 3-4 stickers spaced a few days apart. Glad to be able to speed up this process which results in less need for concealer and less make-up caused breakouts! Now I get less upset when I get a pimple because I know I'll be past the scar quickly.
Slow but steady
Krista from Undisclosed
I have purchased several boxes of Hyperfade, and follow the directions to the letter. I am seeing progress but it's slow. I will continue to use it on my dark spots as I have seen improvements. The micro dart technology is fantastic. Zitsticka is so innovative.

helps lighten marks over time
Katherine from Undisclosed
okay, I have to admit i was very very skeptical. But I have a few dark spots I have been attacking with laser for 2 years now and I was ready to test hyperfade just in case it would work. So of the 3 spots, 2 were ex-zit scars, those faded by over half with 2 applications. I can see them being removed completely eventually. One spot is an age spot. This has been under attack by laser and peels forever. This one also faded by half but in 4 applications. At first i was put off by the amount of packaging. It arrived in a very postage unfriendly square box of luxe heavy cardboard with a glossy frost finish. I wondered hy they couldn't just pop just stickers on a sheet into a mailer? Each sticker comes in a sealed foil packet set into a tray that keeps them upright, maybe from leaning on each other? Inside that packet is a tiny plastic flip container with the sticker inside. This suggests the sticker containers actives that need protection from the air - a good sign. A lot of the price is in the packaging for sure but at least half of it seems functional. Anyway, I'm back on the site to order 2 more boxes. Hopefully that'll remove all three spots for good.
A must have
Katlynn from Undisclosed
These are great to have on hand. Within two hours redness will fade making it perfect to put on before dates or big meetings. Highly recommend!
It does work but you need patience.
Dohi from Undisclosed
Dark spots won't clear up over night and these are not cheap. But they definitely work to fade dark spots over a few months!
Better than competitors
Mimi from Undisclosed
I tried a similar patch from another brand but yields no result. I was feeling skeptical about microneedling patch in general and this product isn't cheap but I got such amazing result from the killa so I thought giving this a try and boy im hooked. I would say the price is a bit high for the amount that is given. Now I'm taking the zitsticka supplements I don't feel as needed to use this very often.
Jas from Undisclosed
Just finished my second box and I think I'm noticing the dark spots left from acne are definitely fading. Been using the patch along with the blur potion and my skin is glowing :) I will stay consistent with it.
Mitzi from Undisclosed
I wore one overnight over the course of 2 weeks and it significantly brought down the darkness of a post acne mark. Will purchase again!
I like it!
Alexandra from Undisclosed
Luckily, I haven't had to use this product too much yet. But I do like that it helps the dark spots left from pimples. Depending on the spot, you need to use a couple patches as it fades over time.
Hit or miss
Amanda from Undisclosed
I've reviewed this product twice before and the conclusion I've reached is just that you have to try it for yourself. It's worked wonders on some of my PIH, but not at all on other spots. Overall I'd recommend giving it a go but also pairing it with other products for lightening dark spots.
