I recommend Advanced Pigment Corrector to my patients who struggle with hyperpigmentation and post-acne discoloration. I use it daily to maintain my results post laser treatment for pigmentation. It’s light, works on all skin types and can be used year round!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved my brown pigmentation on my face - yeah! I am hispanic and have suffered from melasma (brown patches) on my cheeks and tip of my nose for many years; dark spots intensified after pregnancy. A year ago, I tried Lumecca (IPL laser - $$$ ) which diminished the melasma but I still see some small dark spots on my face; my dermatologist suggested Advanced Pigment Corrector. This is my 4th night and dark spots are vanishing. Every morning, I see an even tone. I am loving this product - After this product, I apply the Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50. Thank you SkinCeuticals :-)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It goes on smoothly and smells nice; however, aside from that it does nothing of what it promises and is over priced. I purchased this because it was rated an A+, unfortunately I give it a D-. It did not take away or even slightly fade my discoloration/brown spots on my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really worked! I had melasma, or darkening of theabove my upper lip for years.. I finally asked a great dermatologist if I should laser it and she suggested this instead. Within a few weeks and had lessoned and after a couple of months it was totally gone. So happy because I am allergic to the usual hyperpigmentation ingredients and this worked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! highly recommended It is working for me and I love the product! I went to the beach and I got so much sunburn but after I use it for 6 months I can see a big different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! This is my favorite age spot remover. I've been using it for years and it's my go to. If I've been out in the sun too long and I start getting spots, I use this product right away. It takes a little while to see the difference but after a couple months of continued use, I can see that my spots have lightened up noticeably.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No results I bought it to help with some discoloration after acne and after finishing the bottle, sadly I couldn't notice any improvement. Considering the price, this is not a product that you can try to see if it works, it should have done some benefit!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No improvement I’ve used Advanced Pigment Corrector along with other Skinceutical products and I’m disappointed to say that the pigment corrector has shown no improvement after 5 months of twice daily use. I like Skinceutical products and can say I’ve seen a bit of improvement in texture and wrinkles. I will finish the tube because it’s too costly to waste but I will not repurchase. I would try another Skinceutical product to lighten dark spots . Hopefully there is one out there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Packaging defect The product is good. But is is dispensed in a rigid tube. Since it is expensive, I have been using a wooden shishkabob stick for 5 weeks to get the residue out. That is precious money that would be thrown out in the trash can. Please change the packaging or I will look for a more user friendly product. Dolores K

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the product HATE the packaging I love this so much I can't be without it, it doesn't immediately lighten all of my spots, but firms my face and gives it an amazing glow. Unfortunately, the packaging is horrible! It is not a flexible tube that squeezes, it is thick hard plastic which makes it impossible to get out every last drop :( Will still purchase, but please consider changing package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definately helps I have been using this product for one year now as recommended by my skin care practitioner. I started getting chemical peels about one year ago and this product along with Phloretin CF and Advanced Pigment Corrector was recommended. I use it in between treatments to help support the effects of the peel. It works wonderfully. Yes I had precious peels, but without proper follow up by good products they were not altogether effective. No product will remove dark sunspots that I have found. My dermatologist freezes them off. This works on my whole face in areas of general darkening and some dark spots due to sun exposure. At 57, my skin has become so free from discoloration, I no longer have to wear foundation if I don't want to. I use CE Ferulic with advanced pigment serum and Ultimate UV every morning. Phloretin CF, advanced pigment corrector and moisturizer each night. These products complement each other very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful for me This product works best for my skin compared to anything else I've tried. Other products make my skin break out and/or don't work as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i LOVE this product I do not know where these negative reviews come from. I got an awful facial where she left me very red, then dark brownish in spots primary on my chin. I was so angry and this product saved me! it is not an overnight result, but neither is anything. I saw a drastic difference in about a month and a half and in 3 months every spot was gone... not faded... gone!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ineffective I faithfully used this product for almost a year and I have now given up on it. It simply did not work at all on my discoloration. Very disappointing considering the hefty price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Seem To Work! What a huge disappointment. I wish I had read these reviews before buying this product but I fell for the fact that this is a renowned company 'backed by science' in skincare. This pigment corrector did not work on me at all and we are in the summer months so it is extremely frustrating because I don't want my spots to get worse and while this is happening, perhaps there is a better product out there I could be using. nnAfter spending nearly a hundred dollars on this product, I feel ripped off and annoyed. I will definitely think twice and do more due diligence before buying any more products by this company.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I can't say if my brown spots are any lighter. They are still present. I've been using the advanced pigment corrector going on 3 months, twice daily. I am very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work This does not work. I used this night and morning until the tube was empty and none of my spots went away. in fact, I have more spots now.
