How to use a serum
Limit initial use to three times per week; gradually increase frequency to up to once per day. Apply over face and neck, avoiding the eyelids and lips. For daytime, always finish with an SPF rated 30 or above and limit sun exposure as much as possible while using this product.
Not necessarily. In fact, most will find that it complements their current routine because it can easily be used with ingredients such as retinol, niacinamide, vitamin C and azelaic acid (to name a few). Adding it to your current routine can help take your skin-evening routine to the next level and help maximise results. Tackling discolourations takes a comprehensive approach, so gentle cleansing, exfoliation, daily sunscreen and nighttime moisturisers are also key.
The quickest results may be seen when this discolouration serum is used on red or pink post-blemish marks. The longest on grey, brown or dark brown/black marks (these can be particularly stubborn). As with all skincare, results will vary. No matter the cause of the discolouration, 8-12 weeks of daily use is the general timeframe needed to see results. Remember that ongoing use is needed to maintain results.
The Clinical Discolouration Repair Serum will not address hypopigmentation (loss of pigment). Lack of pigment can be caused by a variety of things, and it can be very tricky to get rid of. Those concerned with this condition should be properly diagnosed by a dermatologist or physician and treated accordingly. For topically resistant discolourations, in-office procedures may be required which can be discussed with your dermatologist or physician as well.
This discolouration correcting serum is perfect for anyone who wants to restore their skin's natural tone and evenness. It's particularly good for those who've tried traditional discolouration-fading ingredients but found they did not deliver visible results.
No. This discolouration serum is lightweight and melts into skin. It plays nicely with other products and ingredients making it easy to layer.
Most likely, yes. Although ongoing use is advised to maintain results, some may find that daily application of sunscreen and a commitment to avoiding the sun as much as possible will prevent the return of dark spots. However, if you're dealing with more stubborn concerns like melasma, ceasing the use of any discolouration-reducing treatment or even skin tone skincare product will almost certainly lead to a relapse, which is why ongoing use is especially important in this case.
Absolutely! While this product was formulated for those who are struggling with stubborn dark marks or patches, this discolouration and even skin tone serum can also be used by those with an uneven skin tone. Using discolouration and uneven skin tone targeting skincare such as the Clinical Discolouration Repair Serum early on will help protect skin and prevent dark patches from forming in the first place. For many, discolourations are already present underneath the skin and begin to surface later on in life or when skin is repeatedly exposed to environmental factors.
No. However, we recommend limiting sun exposure because when your primary goal is to minimise discolourations, it’s important to be sun-smart. Avoid the sun as much as possible, apply sunscreen daily and consider hats, sunglasses, and beach umbrellas which can all prove helpful, whether you are using a discolouration and uneven skin tone serum or not.
