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!
Finallly found a products that delivers
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 !
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.
I've had dark brown spots on my forehead leftover from when I got breakouts. I've been using Meladerm on that area for about 2 months and have seen almost a complete fading of the spots. Great product and I have recommended to everyone thats had to same problem as me.
2 shades lighter in 1 month
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.
Great solution for sun damage
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.
I am an Asian descent and never had problems with my skin, never a pimple or break outs. I am almost 50 years old now and I noticed about this pigmentation on my face, I believe this was due to birth control pills. It is not too bad but I like to keep my face stay fair and good. So with this problem, I found Meladerm and it is amazing, it does work. I noticed after a week or two of using it, my face was clearer than before. I really love it, I just hope that this is available in stores here in Canada for easier access whenever I ran out.
I was desperate for treatment for my melasma until I found Meladerm.
I am grateful that I found Meladerm after over 10 years of finding the right treatment for my melasma. I tried every skin treatment possible, from a series of chemical peels to IPL treatments and eventually, Fraxel laser. I went to several aestheticians and at one time, even drove regulary to a clinic that was 100 miles away from me. I have not used anything as effective as Meladerm. I saw my melasma lighten up after 3 weeks of using it. I love the product-- no foul scent and very gentle on my skin. Thank you so much for bringing it to women like me who became hopeless for something that is inexpensive and effective. I spend less on concealers and foundation and my confidence is back.
Melasma sucks - Meladerm rules ! I'm fair haired and pale skinned. Been using Meladerm for 2 weeks and already I'm seeing a difference not only have the brown patches (on both cheeks and forehead) started to disappear but my whole skin tone is changing. My daughter commented on my skin today, she innocently said "your skin doesn't look as grey" I knew exactly what she meant. Wish I'd discovered this product years ago. I feel more confident in my own skin. If you have Melasma give Meladerm a go you won't be disappointed.
Pretty bad melasma
The first time I got melasma was while using birth control pills. At that time I used hydroquinone that resolve minimally my problem. After that I used everything I could find to treat the dark spots on my cheekbones and above my upper lip without any positive results. Two years ago I got pregnant and the dark spots were even darker and it affected my self confidence very much. It was until four months ago I found these products and decided to take a chance and bought them. I began using them two months ago and the change has been dramatically. The spots are not gone completely, but reduce so much that now I am able to go out without make up and not be self aware of the spots. Even my husband noticed the difference after only three weeks of using them. I really love these products, specially that are basically natural without harsh chemicals and is very gentle on my skin. Also it smells pretty good and is not greasy, even my blemishes are in control. I will continue to use them and hopefully they will be completely gone in a couple of months. Will come back with photos to prove it. Thank you for bringing me back my confidence!
It really works
After having 3 children my face was full of dark spots, pigmentations and freckles. I went to see a Dr who specialised in skin cancer (moles & freckles) and even tried laser on my face. My pigmentations and freckles were lighten less than 50%. I was then told that it was very hard to get rid of freckles on Asian skin and that was the best he could do for me.
I wasn't happy with the result so I went on the Internet and did my own research. That's when I've discovered Meladerm by Civant Skincare. After using Meladerm for 2 weeks, my kids noticed that my tone was lighter and my spots were more than 50% lighter. I've been using Meladerm for 1 month now and most of my spots were gone - Miracle!!!!
I would highly recommend this product to everyone as you can really see the result and does not cost a fortune
I have my confidence back after lots of prayer and Meladerm
I am a South African woman. My skin tone is brown and I am 42 years old. I know that the readers out there reading the reviews looks for every little detail that would give them hope to persevere. I can relate to this.
I started using Meladerm cream on 21 July 2014. Twice daily as indicated. Two months in use of this cream I saw no change what so ever in fact my complexion looked worse. I even had lots of break outs. I was devastated. Everyday I would go to the reviews looking for hope. The reviews really carried me through this journey. Three months still not much change. Four months in use I started getting less break outs and my complexion started looking brighter. Just some background of my problem, I got pigmentation on my cheeks under my eyes 3 almost 4 years ago. The cause can be birth control pills or even sun damage because I never wore sunscreen. As a teenager I had my fair share of acne, but not to bad. I tried getting rid of my pigmentation with laser treatments which made it worse because the Fraxel laser is not meant for dark skin. How ironic I was told of this after my treatments. Anyway I searched the Internet trying to find something. Of cause I found Meladerm cream.
On 21 January I will be using Meladerm for 6 months. I am so pleased to say I see an amazing change in my complexion. My pigmentation is so much lighter, in fact my right side cheeks pigmentation is gone. The other side is much lighter. I don't get any break outs anymore. I must add though I also started using the cleanser and toner and green cloth. Be gentle with the green cloth please. This I started using in almost my 3rd month. I use to hide behind foundation and I am pleased to say no more reapplying my foundation 4 times. I am at applying once and then my complexion looks great. I also use sunscreen.
Thank you to all that took time to write their reviews. It carried me through a very difficult time. I drew my strength and hope from your reviews. It does take patients and it can take much, much longer for you but I am pleased to say it works. Don't give up, keep going.
To Civant Skincare I want to applaud and thank you for the effort and dedication in doing the research and coming up with such an fantastic product. Thank you for caring so much that you selected only natural ingredients that would not harm my skin. I have my confidence back after lots of prayer and Meladerm. God bless your company.
I do have a photo diary since 21 July 2014 to date. I am looking forward to having flawless skin by my next birthday which is in June. I will see if I will post my pics because my face looked terrible. Now I can look in the mirror and smile. I pray and wish this for everyone out there having skin problems. I assure you Meladerm cream truly works. Using this product almost 6 months I can see a huge difference. Be patient! Thank you Civant Skincare I am forever grateful.
Effective and amazing
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
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
