This is my first blog on a SkinCeuticals product and I thought I would go right for one of Dr. Doppelt’s new favorites, the Discoloration Defense serum. It is a very potent product that is clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of discoloration, even stubborn types. It contains an amazingly effective combination of ingredients that includes tranexamic acid, kojic acid and niacinamide.
Tranexamic acid has recently become the “darling” of dermatologists as a topical treatment for hyperpigmentation and SkinCeuticals is one of the first to include it in a serum. It is also hydroquinone free which makes it a safer alternative to skin “bleaching” creams. This is also a multi-phase product that works against discoloration from several different angles. And with continued use, it helps to minimize the reoccurrence of discoloration.
Discoloration Defense is appropriate for all skin types who struggle with hyperpigmentation. It contains no fragrance, silicone, parabens or gluten. So even sensitive skin types and those prone to breakouts will be fine with this product. It is a layerable serum that dries quickly and is used both AM/PM. Brighter skin and more even skin tone can be seen in as quickly as 30 days.
I love the Discoloration Defense because it is easy to use and it works quickly. Mary, one of our aestheticians here in the office, has been using this product for several months now and cannot say enough good things about it. She has noticed a big difference in her skin and says she won’t go without it. Her hyperpigmentation has improved considerably and her skin tone looks more even. Many companies have tried to come up with a topical correction to the very common problem of hyperpigmentation, with lackluster results. SkinCeuticals has finally done it!
