Superfade is clinically proven, pharmacy strength hyperpigmentation treatment - not a cosmetic. Age Spots and brown skin blemishes are caused by excessive pigmentation that produces irregular brown marks on the skin surface, especially on backs of hands, arms, neck and face. Superfade Cream contains a powerful fading agent and other ingredients to assist in fading age spots, freckles and brown skin blemishes. The unique, synergistic combination of Hydroquinone and exfoliants is only found in Superfade. Hydroquinone works within the skin to stop the cause of excessive pigmentation. Superfade Cream works gradually by gently exfoliating the hyper-pigmented skin and encouraging new skin growth. Results should begin to appear after 6-8 weeks.
