Hyperpigmentation due to Birth Control Pills

I have had Melasma, due to birth control pills, under my eyes on my cheek bones for over 6 years. They are dark “stripes” on my cheekbones…they sort of resemble the eye black paint football players apply under their eyes to reduce glare from stadium lights. It was awful and embarrassing. People also asked me about them and thought I looked tired. I tried everything to get rid of my hyperpigmentation! Lumixyl, hydroquinone, AHA and nothing ever worked! Melasma due to birth control pills is not the same as hyperpigmentation due to sun damage. Melasma due to birth control occurs deep within the skin’s layers and no other treatment was able to penetrate deep into my skin like Meladerm! I applied Meladerm twice a day, in the morning and evening, and used sunscreen (SPF 60) during the day. It smells great and never burned or irritated by skin. I notice that my dark spots were lighter in just 2 weeks! Even the outer edges of the dark spots under my eyes softened. It’s been 4 months and the spots are gone! I can go outside with no makeup on! I just wear moisturizer and sunscreen! I will continue to use Meladerm forever! Meladerm changed my quality of life and gave me my confidence back! Thank you!

Took a lot of patience, but it was completely worth it!!

When I was 17 I noticed that there were many circular dark marks mysteriously appearing all over my torso and back. The culprit: birth control. I was so self-conscious and depressed about the spots and for a really long time I thought that I would have to carry them on my body for life. After 2 long years of standing idle while the spots increased in number and size, I decided that enough was enough and I was determined to fight back. I did my research and I stumbled across Meladerm on an online forum about hyperpigmentation. I was so desperate to be able to get back in a two piece bathing suit and not feel self-conscious or embarrassed that I was willing to try anything and I bought two bottles even though the price tag was hefty.

I can't say that I noticed much improvement during those first two months that I used up the two bottles, but I was committed to Meladerm and I decided to be patient and continue to use the cream. I purchased another two bottles and after the two months during which I used them went by, I noticed an INCREDIBLE improvement in the condition of my skin and its appearance. The spots were getting lighter and some of the smaller ones had disappeared altogether! I was elated and I recommended the cream to my mother who is a middle aged woman suffering from melasma. My mother only used the cream a couple of times before losing patience and giving me the cream she had purchased. I wish she had continued to use it because as many of the people who have seen results with Meladerm will tell you, IT TAKES TIME FOR YOU TO SEE RESULTS!!! You need to be patient with this cream!

I have been using Meladerm for almost an entire year now (I started using it in December 2012 and it is now October 2013) and I will let my pictures speak for themselves.

The money I have spent on Meladerm over these past 8 months was one of the greatest investments I have EVER made in my entire life! I am once again able to wear a two piece swim suit without feeling self-conscious about my spots...and even though some of the more stubborn ones have not yet completely disappeared (they will eventually), no one at the beach I went to in the Bahamas this summer even noticed them!!

A word of advice to those who are using or considering of using meladerm: BE PATIENT! Trust me, it will be worth it!

Over the years I have tried many different products and must have literally spent hundreds on undeliovered promises. I started using Meladerm from around mid August of this year -it has only been around 6 weeks but I am impressed enough with the results to let others know about it. I am part Asian and was lucky to have inherited my mother's beautiful skin which I rather stupidly took for granted. I didn't invest in sunscreen or a hat and before I knew it I had have very prominent sunspots on my forehead and cheekbones, around my eyes and across my top lip making me look as though I had a moustache! I use the spots on my cheek bones as a gauge and even though the spots are still present they have definitely faded. Myn'moustache'is all but gone. I've come to accept that there is still a bit more work needed especially on my forehead. I have invested in some mineral make up which allows me to build up coverage effectively and my overall facial appearance is brighter and lighter. My advice to anyone reading this would be to take the jumnp and get Meladerm. It is worth the money and livaes up to the hype. Help it along by wearing sunscreen and be patient! I have found my regime now - it's shame it's taken me to get to my forties to do so :) Good luck everyone and thank you Meladerm !

GOODBYE MAKEUP!!

In 2010 I got into a car accident and due to medications, stress, depression and poor eating habits my face broke out in acne. At that point I didn't care because my main focus was to be able to walk again and just wasted a lot of money on makeup to cover up my face. After wasting over $500 on makeup products I finally decided it was time to find a solution to my problem and almost two years later I finally did my research and came upon Meladerm. It was considered to be the best and I was desperate so I decided to try it and bought it. The first week of trying it I already saw a difference and got the results I got after two months. I followed the instructions and waited ten minutes to apply makeup on and also used it twice a day. Unfortunately I couldn't get better results because I still do get acne and it does make fresh scars. I recently ran out of meladerm but it did last me about two months and I'm very pleased with the results also it toned my skin and helped with the dark circles around my eyes. I highly recommend it to everyone!!

Gave me back my confidence!

Meladerm has really given me back my confidence! I've been a user for about five months and my skin is almost completely cleared. I had so many black spots on my face and forehead and just overall it looked so much darker than my real skin tone. I used Meladerm and have been going for regular facials and the results have been tremendous that even the woman who did my facial was aksing what I use!! I would highly recommend that everyone try this product because it can really help you feel proud in your skin!

Birth control related melasma

Up until last year I was on birth control which caused the area above my lip to turn dark like a mustache. Until I found your product, I was using makeup to cover it. I used Meladerm for 2 months and the dark areas are so much lighter. I can actually look at myself in the mirror without makeup. Even though it was such a small part of my face, it made a world of difference in my appearance. I've also recommended your product to my mother who has some dark patches on her face from pregnancy.

Great Product

I've been playing sports at my university for 3 years and I have to say that after years of being under the sun, my hands had considerably become darker than the rest of my body. Searching for products that would help lighten my hands, I tried many products without success, until my mother bought Meladerm for me on your website. Using Meladerm drastically lightened my hands 2 shades lighter in only 1 month! I am so impressed at the results and recommend this product to anyone, thanks.

When I was in high school and college I tanned my skin 4-5 times a week. Now that I am older I realize the horrible damages that sun does to a person's skin and I have completely stopped tanning. Unfortunately, because I had tanned so long my skin was a lot darker than I wanted it to be. I began using the Meladerm lotion, and the stubborn dark pigment of my skin has drastically become whiter over the past months! I will continue to use Meladerm until the damage of the sun is gone! Thank you.

Ever since I can remember I had this dark patch of skin under my eyes on both sides of my nose. Someone had told me to try using lemon juice which I did but it only made it worse. I bought Meladerm and have been using it for about 2 months and there has been a huge difference. Ive attached my before and after pic to this email so you can really see the difference.

Effective and amazing

12 / 6 / 14     Author:  Marie

I only buy products after doing some research and reading reviews so I decided to try Meladerm after testing and trying countless different creams from Clinique, Murad, Lancome, you name it- I tried it. and nothing worked until I tried Meladerm, and it delivered! I couldn't believe my eyes, I didn't say anything to anyone. My most honest critic, my Mom, noticed the change and she asked me what did I do to clear my skin like that. She so impressed that she ordered it for herself right away! I used a small size jar in 2.5 months and didn't see noticeable results until after 6. The 2 weeks results they advertised did not happen to me - but be patient, it works. I got a second jar to continue the treatment since there is still room for improvements. Do not hesitate to try it, you won't be disappointed!

This Product Is For Real!

I'm a Pharmacist and so know a bit about cosmetic products (part of my training). I was very leary of trying any hydroquinone products because of the safety concerns, and other products I'd tried for my nasty acne scars didn't do the job. As advertised, Meladerm started working within two weeks (actually, I saw results after about 5 days, and by day 14 the improvement was obvious!). It doesn't clear everything instantly but does what it is purported to do with consistent use. My face is completely clear of those unsightly acne scars now save a few new spots that arose from a recent outbreak, which Meladerm is working on quite nicely! It's very refreshing to actually find a product that has no hyped-up advertising but does what it is simply stated to do. Also, it's VERY cost-effective; my last jar lasted nearly 7 months! What's there NOT to like about this product?! :-) Thank you Civant!!

Meladerm saves me from skin laser treatment

10 / 11 / 14     Author:  Steven

That was more than 2 years ago. At that time i was having very large dark spots on my face due to years of accumulation of sun exposure due to the nature of my outdoor work where i was exposure to extreme sun on most times. It was getting so bad to a point that i have low self esteemed for years and was about to get skin laser treatment and a skin laser treatment in Malaysia is not cheap! Then i tried meladerm. Was surprised i saw vast improvement in just weeks !!! And my skin had improved vastly after that and people started to commend me why have my pigmentation almost disappeared. Now i am buying my 3rd bottle to maintain and to further even my skin tone. To me meladerm works miraculously for me. Thanks

I love Meladerm and my skin looks great! People stop me on the street saying that I have beautiful skin and I tell them I use Meladerm! I recommend the product to my friends and family too. I use the Meladerm and the exfoliating serum. I am truly in love. I hope the company looks into developing products for the body as well. There is no way anyone could give these products a bad review. There products are amazing, and I am not the type of person to endorse a product that doesn't work !

100% satisfied.

I was about to give up on my acne. I tried everything; Proactiv, Neutrogena, Clean & clear, Clearasil, Tazorac, antibiotics and even natural remedies. NOTHING WORKED! I would see results for a day or 2 and it was back to square one. For about a year i would wake with new acne EVERY DAY. I decided that this was the last straw, if this didn't work i was going to have to resort to Accutane :(. Thank God I found the Civant Skincare line. I ordered Meladerm, the cleanser, toner and the Exfoliating Serum. I do have sensitive skin, so the exfoliating serum didn't work for me (as stated). Since using the cleanser, toner and Meladerm, I have noticed great improvement in my skin tone and my acne has improved greatly. My skin still isn't 100%, but it's getting there. I finished my first jar of Meladerm today, and i will be ordering another. My skin tone is evening out and i only get breakouts now and then, but most definitely not as often as it was happening before. If you have problem skin, these just may be the products for you.

BEST PRODUCT EVER

This is my first time writing a rewiew about a product, it's working that why i'm writing this. I've used so many products on the market, but this is the first time that a product works for me, it's pretty amasing , I thought the spots on my shin could never fade away, but guess what it's fading away day by day. I will continue to use it until I have no dark spot. The only issue is that it's little inside for the prize, mine last for 2 and a half weeks. Great product.
