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.

Patience and Meladerm

7 / 16 / 14     Author:  Louise J.

Initially I was skeptical about Meladerm because I did not notice significant improvement in my skin. I continued to use the facial wash and the exfoliating serum along with Meladerm and the 'green cloth'. After nearly two months I have softer, smoother skin. The brow area fine lines and the wrinkle channel on the sides of my mouth are nearly gone. The brown areas on my cheeks are fading. I am beginning to see an even skin tone. I initially ordered the products to fade the hyperpigmentation on my cheeks. I used several products including a prescription cream with minimal results. This is the first product that has given significant results. I will continue using Civant products.

Game changer!

7 / 7 / 14     Author:  Sarah

I have very sensitive skin, that breaks out since I've been a teenager due stress, hormone changes, touching my face too much with my hands, etc. To make matters worse, every time I would get a pimple my face would be permanently marked by pigmentation. As a woman in my thirties, I just couldn't take it anymore. I have tried every cream out there, and while they would provide modest relief, there was no final solution and I continued to be plagued with bad skin. Then I stumbled upon Meladerm, and my skin changed! I have been using only the Meladerm anti-pigmentation cream for three months now, and the results have been amazing. Not only have my acne pigmentation marks faded (still have a way to go), but I don't get pimples anymore! At all!! That alone has been such a gift. I have now ordered the complete line of Meladerm products, and am so excited to see my skin continue to improve. Thank you so much, Civant Skin Care! You have changed my skin, and my life!

OMG its actually working!

I swearrrr this is absolutely the first time I've ever made an attempt to write a review on any product I've ever bought in my life but I had to make this a first. I am a 23yr old male of a dark brown skin tone and I began using Meladerm for just over a month now and I swear I literally began noticing a change in the overall quality and tone of my skin in EXACTLY 2 weeks just like the product said it would and as each day goes by the discolorations in my face just keeps lightening up more and more each day. For all those skeptics out there, I was just like you and I never thought that Meladerm would have any effect on my Dark Brown complexion at all because all I was thinking is that this product would was made for and would only work for Caucasians and not for people of an African decent but I was wrong and I'm very pleased with the continuous results I've been getting so far in my journey to having a glowing complexion. At the rate my skin is clearing up after just a month of using it I am very excited to see how great my results will be in 3 months from now. Thank you Meladerm for making me a believer. Xoxoxo :)

Update from October 2013

I am still using the product and am very pleased. I use the entire line every day including the cloth. I am now going to order the sunscreen because the summer is breaking in. I have noticed my skin is much softer and even toned. I do not and have never worn any makeup and this product keeps my skin healthy with a natural glow. Thanks for a great product.

I am extremely happy!!!!!!!

Hi I want to take the time out to share my happy and successful story of using Meladerm. I've been researching this item for quite some time after so many unsuccessful skin lightening products I've tried , to remove a number of dark facial spots. I literally mean I've tired everything there was under the sun and over the counter. When I finally succumb to the temptation of trying meladerm, I was a bit skeptical it was not going to be any better than what I've tried. Boy was I sooooo wrong. About 4 weeks into using this product, which I had shipped to Barbados, I was pleasantly surprised! There was one particular brown spot that made me very sad when I looked into the mirror, had disappeared. And what's so amazing about it, I didn't even notice the diminishing of it. It was like I woke up and it was completely gone!!!!!!!!! Within a week or two to follow, the other spots to disappeared. I am so very happy and contented with Meladerm , and sincerely recommend it! Thanking the wonderful people who invented this product, my skin is back to being flawless and evenly toned. Well done!!!!!!!!

AMAZING GLOW!

3 / 2 / 14     Author:  SSE

Honestly, in 1 day's use, my skin is glowing! I had used a high-end Japanese skin care line; the results I felt was high maintenance and results were not AS powerful. The 'result' time was immediate in comparison! My ULTIMATE goal is to no longer use cosmetics. I have met my match. I am of asian decent. THIS product SHOULD be the rage for those that seek a 'bright' complexion. The scent of Meladerm reminds me of spring; like a blade of grass: a rejuvenation of the earth's homeopathic healing. I am blessed to use a product that reflects my GLOW from the inside out. Thank you to everyone who worked hard to produce, build, package and ship this break-through gift. THIS IS the way to go, friends :D ***

dark spots and pigmentation on face reduced to nothing

I am not the kind of person to write a review that easily. But this is compelling. I am an Indian woman who had pigmentation on either side of cheek bones which stood out. I happen to go through thr internetand meladerm was a chance finding. I ordered it hoping it would solve my problem. Even though I was not very trusting of this product I used it diligently. I started to notice the difference within 2 weeks. Now I have an even skin tone thanks to meladerm and I have never looked better. I have recommended it to my friends and my mother. Thank you so much!!!!

IT REALLY Works!!

I never write reviews, but I have to say, this cream actually really works. I have been using it for over 3 months and my acne/pimple marks, pigmentation marks, have faded out! My skin has a glow, the dark circles around my eyes have reduced significantly. The cream is light so it does not cause you any rash or additional acne. My skin is super sensitive and I have to say, I had no trouble with this cream. Just re-ordered it again!!
