FAQ's

Who should use Dark Spot Corrector?

Our Dark Spot Corrector is the appropriate treatment option for anyone looking to help fade the appearance of dark spots, regardless of age or gender. While we formulated our product with the highest quality, safe ingredients, every person’s skin is unique so it is best to test the product on a different skin area to make sure you react well to the ingredients.


A different spot corrector actually made my dark spots MORE noticeable. Could this happen with your product?

The reason many other products make your dark spots MORE noticeable is because they use harsh, potentially dangerous bleaching agents, which can seep into surrounding skin. This means that they can cause a white “ring” to form around the dark spot - which actually makes the spot “highlighted” and more obvious!


Our product won’t cause this effect because it does not contain a bleaching agent. Active ingredients in  Dark Spot Corrector work deep within the skin where dark spots start, to “break up” areas of hyperpigmentation and reduce melanin overproduction naturally.


How do I use Dark Spot Corrector?

It should be used up to four times daily, depending on the color and size of your spots. Using a pea- or dime-sized amount, apply the treatment directly to your areas of hyperpigmentation. Because our skin’s natural healing processes are most efficient at night, never forget to apply before bed!


Other products I’ve tried gave me results at first, but then stopped working after a while. Will this happen with your product?

The reason you may have experienced this with other products is because they may not have added enough of the active ingredients (usually to cut corners and save a buck), or they use harsh chemicals that cause an instant reaction but do not work in the long term. Instead, our formula is packed with ingredients that give you LASTING results, and the longer you use the product, the better results you’ll experience.


Is it suitable for all skin types?

Since our Dark Spot Corrector contains safe, natural ingredients that help regenerate your skin from the inside out, our unique formula can be used on every skin type without the risk of side effects. However, every person’s skin is different, so results may vary.


Can it be used on sensitive skin?

Because our Dark Spot Corrector is formulated with natural, gentle ingredients, it is safe to use on even the most sensitive skin. However, those who know they have sensitive skin are always advised to use caution when using any new product for the first time.


How do I know it’s working?

We always recommend that our patients take a “before” picture prior to their first use. Take your “after” photo about a month later and you can see the results for yourself! Our patients have reported a reduction in the color and size of the hyperpigmented area, but since every person’s skin is unique, every person‘s experience is slightly different.


Other spot correctors I’ve tried smell horrible, like chemicals. Does yours?

Many other spot correctors smell like harsh chemicals because they’re MADE with horrible chemicals.


We, on the other hand, spent years actively searching for the most powerful natural ingredients in the world that can achieve the same (or even better) results as those harsh chemicals, without any of the risk or danger. Because ours is more natural, you won’t experience the “ink” or “Clorox” smells so many other products have. Ours smells very lightly of plum and honey, due to its inclusion of the powerful Kakadu plum.


I have oily, acne-prone skin. Will Dark Spot Corrector clog my pores or cause breakouts?

Many products have a heavy cream base that makes skin feel oily and greasy. Instead, ours has a light gel base that dries quickly and absorbs into the layers of the epidermis - instead of sitting on top of your skin and clogging pores. This makes it ideal to use before makeup application or before applying your daily SPF moisturizer.


I have very dry skin. Will Dark Spot Corrector irritate my skin or cause flaking like other products I’ve tried?

The ingredients in our formula contain properties meant to moisturize and protect the skin, unlike other products whose harsh chemicals dry out and dehydrate the epidermis. Every person’s skin is different - but most people using this product should notice a pleasant, non-greasy moisturizing effect.


Can I use  Dark Spot Corrector around my eyes?

Although our dark spot corrector is formulated with gentle, non-irritating ingredients, the skin around the eyes is significantly thinner than surrounding skin - making it much more delicate and sensitive. That’s why it is best to use products around the eyes that are specifically formulated for that area.
