Dark spots can remain after acne heals. “Unfortunately, scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (aka dark spots) are a real possibility when acne is left untreated,” says Dr. Katie Rodan, co-developer of Proactiv and board-certified dermatologist. Such spots vary in color, depending on the tone of your skin. The American Academy of Dermatology says that these spots are often confused for acne scars. But different from acne scars, these spots can fade.
You’ve all probably seen Proactiv Solution commercials on TV and many of you have probably tried it. The three-piece system is a leading acne regimen and a favorite of many of our readers. With their newest launch, promising to accelerate the fading of dark spots, they are sure to gain even more fans.
Proactiv has introduced an acne system that not only fights acne but also addresses the dark spots and blotches that acne breakouts can leave behind. This new system is designed to help clear your skin while also working to gradually fade post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that can take months to fade. The Dark Spot Corrector, formulated with 2 percent hydroquinone (designed to fade skin discoloration) and special oil-free sunscreen, join the 3-piece system to treat acne, prevent breakouts and fade dark spots.
