Do you have issues with uneven skin tone? Even Tone Correcting Serum is just the product for you! First, it is important to note that this serum is medical grade, so we know exactly what ingredients are in the product because they are regulated. They have also been researched and proven to work, and you can only purchase this at a medical facility. The serum is designed to specifically target red, brown, and yellow pigment in the skin. It breaks up these pigments and helps them to fade. In addition to hyperpigmentation (dark spots), did you know that it also helps with HYPOpigmentation (light spots)? This is usually an issue in darker skin tones and can be of benefit to this population as well. That is why it is important for us to say that it makes the skin tone more “even” and not necessarily lighter. This product does not have SPF, but it does help to protect against UVA and UVB rays, which therefore helps prevent the recurrence of pigment. This serum also has vitamin C in the form of plum extract, which has the highest concentration of vitamin C available naturally. It has also been proven to further reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help with textured skin lesions, possibly due to the vitamin C.
Who is this product good for? People who have a history of melasma, rosacea, smoking, acne, alcohol consumption, diabetes, and sun worshipping tend to have issues with an even skin tone. This is a non-hydroquinone product, so it does not need to be stopped after a certain period of time and is very well tolerated. If there is a need for hydroquinone, this is safe to use in conjunction with it! If we want this product to work even better, AlphaRet could (and should) be used with it as well!
If you feel that you fit the picture for this product and believe you can benefit from it, please do not hesitate to visit our office! We carry this product as well as so many other wonderful, medical grade products that will take care of all your skin’s needs! We look forward to seeing you!
