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.

Really works!

1 / 25 / 16     Author:  Teresa

My face broke out due to stress. I NEVER had a breakout like this. I ended up looking like a spotted leopard, no fade creams worked and the spots were so dark make-up didn't cover them. Within one week of using the product to spots started to lighten. By the time I finished the bottle my face was clear. Next time I will take before and after pictures. Ten stars!!!!!!

only thing that worked!

1 / 14 / 16     Author:  Caitlin

I loved the beach and a good tan. Combined with sun damage and birth control my melasma was terrible. I tried creams from the dermatologist and that made me break out. My skin is fair and I am sensitive to a lot of products. I started using the meladerm at the beginning of November and took before picture. Only 2 months later, my skin is completely different! My dark spots have dramatically faded and my skin feels amazing. It didn't make my skin break out and it kept it nice and moisturized. This is seriously a miracle product and I'm so excited to see what the next few months will bring!!

Hyperpigmentation

11 / 6 / 15     Author:  Pa X.

After having my children, I noticed that I had a lot of freckles and some hyperpigmentation on my face. I've tried many products before and they seemed to work but the hyperpigmentation always comes back. My mom had it and so did my older sister. This seemed to be after our pregnancies. I have been using the skincare products for about two weeks now. I've noticed the hyperpigmentation and freckles on my checks has lightened or vanished. I have some old acne scars on teh top right corner of my foreheard. It's lighten up but is still there. I will be patient and I feel that this product is working.

Even Skin Complexion

10 / 14 / 15     Author:  Isaac O.

I was excited to know that there was a product out there that could even out my skin tone and get rid of dark spots and contain natural ingredients. I was skeptical at first and apprehensive due to the price and amount of product for the price. However I ordered Meladerm regardless and glad that I did. Meladerm has given me an all around even skin tone. I have very dark skin, I am an African American male. I've tried different toners and other holistic type of remedies like lemon and baking soda etc. But this product surpassed all of my expectation and after going through my first bottle I immediately became hooked. $48 bucks isn't a lot to pay a month for skin that makes everyone jealous. What's also great is that it is also moisturizing and I typically don't put on any moisturizer with the product, I just make sure that I am not out in the sun for long periods of time or sweating off the product. Its part of my daily routine and I wont go back.

Absolutely does what it says.

I purchased my first airless dispenser of Meladerm in early September 2015. Have already ordered another. Worth every penny! I am 60 years old. I use the product on my face and on the back of my hands. The results were noticeable in the first two weeks. The melasma is already lightened and the age spots on my hands are fading. Then I realized my skin looked brighter. So did a man at church. Don't think I will ever not use this fantastic product. So relieved! In the past I have seen a dermatologist for a prescription product. The Meladerm works faster and brightens the skin for about 10% of what it cost to see the doctor. LOVE IT SO MUCH!

THIS IS A MIRACLE ! It's been 5 days only

8 / 26 / 15     Author:  AYESHA S.

Really, I can't believe meladerm has worked for me in just 5days. I just can't wait to see what happens in 30 days. I had pigmentation and it has gone much lighter. Overall I have dark skin and it looks much lighter. I have tried so many other products and finally I was so helpless. When I first ordered this product my partner said that I was just wasting money. But after 2 days my partner was shocked, he said I looked great pigmentation on my face was lighter,fine lines were much lighter and my face was so smooth. This product worked a miracle for me. I have sent my second order today for the serum and face cleanser. I still have some old stretch marks and dark spot in some parts of my body. I would like to see the difference after 1 month. I will definately keep everyone posted. Meladerm is the best product I have ever used. It has changed my life. Thank You Meladerm.

I have heard so many stories about this civant product meladerm but because have heard many stories too about order products in he market that have tried and didnt work for me, so i decided not to use it. Until oneday when my aunt came back from US and brought back meladerm with her, i decided to give it a trial cause my aunt who said she has been using this product for 2months since she has been in the US and she looked very flawless and gorgeous. I applied the cream only for 2weeks...and the cream worked like magic. Omg i couldnt believe my eyes. And am still using it till date. Thanks civant...thanks meladerm.

AMAZING PRODUCT

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.
