  • Product Description

      Daily dark spot corrector targets visible skin discoloration for brighter, more even-looking skin

      Discoloration Defense is a layerable, daily-use dark spot corrector clinically proven to reduce the appearance of key types of skin discoloration in all skin tones, including hard-to-treat forms such as stubborn brown patches and post-acne marks. Formulated with 3% tranexamic acid, 1% kojic acid, 5% niacinamide, and 5% HEPES, this latest-generation formula improves the appearance of skin discoloration, brightens skin, and evens skin tone in as early as 2 weeks.

      • Features a synergistic blend of anti-discoloration ingredients to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration, improve brightness, and minimize the reoccurrence of discoloration (with continued use)
      • 60% average improvement in the appearance of stubborn brown patches1
      • 34% average reduction in post-blemish marks in deeper skin tones2
      • Paraben-, fragrance-, silicone-, gluten-, and hydroquinone-free
      • Ideal at-home complement to professional skin discoloration treatments, such as chemical peels or non-ablative laser; always consult with a physician for individual regimen recommendations

      HOW TO USE

      • Twice daily, apply 3-5 drops of this skin discoloration serum to the face.
      • If using in the morning, apply after a SkinCeuticals vitamin C serum and follow with a SkinCeuticals broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen.
      • Limit sun exposure while using this product.
      • Do not use on irritated or broken skin. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.


      In a 12-week clinical study, Discoloration Defense significantly improved the appearance of key skin discoloration markers:

      • 60% average improvement in the appearance of stubborn brown patches
      • 59% average improvement in the appearance of skin discoloration
      • 81% average improvement in the appearance of post-acne marks
      • 59% average improvement in the appearance of even skin tone

      In a new 12-week study on deeper skin tones (Fitzpatrick V-VI), twice-daily application of Discoloration Defense demonstrated a statistically-significant reduction in the appearance of discoloration, post-inflammatory discoloration, and even skin tone.

      • 34% reduction in post-blemish marks at 12 weeks


      Everyday elements—including UV exposure, prescription drugs, and some professional treatments—can trigger production of melanin in the skin’s lowest epidermal layers. This excess melanin rises to the surface of the skin, causing visible skin discoloration. Discoloration can manifest in a range of ways, including post-acne marks and stubborn brown patches on the cheekbones, forehead, and upper lip.

      Discoloration Defense is the latest-generation dark spot corrector, using a combination of potent and proven anti-discoloration ingredients—including new tranexamic acid—to address key types of skin discoloration.
