Age spots are the result of an excess production of melanin, or skin pigment. Skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet (UV) light exposure, such as tanning are all possible causes for age spots.

Before discussing the details of the serum. let’s in detail analyze the ingredients of this serum.
The key to making the power of Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum is the exclusive NHP-3 technology . NHP-3 technology is a perfect combination of Niacinamide (NB3), Hexylresorcinol and phytoplankton extracts:
Niacinamide- A derivative of vitamin B3 is a highly recommended ingredient, recognized by the World Dermatology Council for its superior performance but less irritating to the skin. Scientific research has shown that Niacinamide can enhance natural collagen production by stimulating cellular activity and better blood circulation. As a result, Niacinamide helps to repair, restore and re-structure the skin effectively, minimizing and preventing the signs of aging for firm, smooth skin. Unlike other whitening agents, niacinamide inhibits the appearance of melanin on the surface, helping to reduce and eliminate uneven pigmentation irregularities. The result is a radiant complexion.
Hexylresorcinol is considered to be a good ingredient for use in the treatment of hyperpigmentation, skin lightening by blocking the formation of melanin. It is a commonly used ingredient to minimize the damage of the lesions leading to dull skin, while reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the surface of the skin.
Plankton Extract The combination of brown microalgae and microscopic algae irritates the brown spots, irregular turbinates , which naturally revive the natural skin tones.
Ingredients are also enhanced by other factors that help to effectively support the treatment of skin pigmentation such as:
Ferulic Acid helps protect the skin from the sun.
Vitamin C is antioxidant, protecting and preventing damage from the environment continuously and immediately.
Oligopeptide promotes the process of taking away dead cells, stimulating the regeneration of new cells, leaving the skin radiant and radiant.
Pearl Powder helps brighten and brighten skin immediately and results in long lasting use.
7 Day Rapid Serum Spot Correcting Serum is designed and designed for those who are experiencing skin problems due to environmental impact, age or post-acne treatment support such as hyperpigmentation. freckles, age spots, dull skin, uneven color, etc. The product is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
- Note – If you already have a damaged skin due to any treatments, You might want to consult your dermatologist before using any product.
For effective use, Murad suggest to use this spot reduction serum as a second step.
After cleansing and toning skin, take required quantity of serum and gently apply and massage well on face and neck.
During daytime I use this along with Murad Hydro Dynamic Quenching Essence
At night I use this in conjunction with Murad City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer
Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum has a creamy texture, easy to spread on skin, gets absorbed quickly, leaving a smooth skin. It has a pleasant citrus aroma, giving you a relaxed feel during every application
Please make sure, you use a sunscreen during the day to avoid skin damage.
Here’s a before and after picture of scars and acne spots on my face. On the right side ‘After’ pic – You can see my present skin. It’s spot free, a lot more radiant and scars are fast fading too. I saw this improvement within 2 weeks of regular usage. What I noticed is- rather than feathering on the entire face, use this as a targeted spot treatment and apply only to problematic areas of the face. I am looking forward to continue using it to see full reduction of spots and scars on my face. I didn’t notice any reduction in dark circles. of course, my dark circles are hereditary and more than the darkness its the shadow of the hollow part that gives the dark shadow.
