I have melasma due to menopause. Will your melasma serum work for me? Each individual has a unique balance of hormones. During perimenopause and menopause this unique balance can be disrupted. This can result in many changes to your body including an excess production of melanin resulting in melasma. This cream will help to control excess production of melanin, but if your body keeps producing the excess melanin, then once, you stop using the product, the hyperpigmentation may return. The first steps to take are to take a look at your diet and lifestyle and make the necessary changes in order to reduce the risk of Candida overgrowth and estrogenic activity in the body. It is also necessary to use proper sun protection on a regular basis, and reduce stress levels as much as possible. We recommend consulting with your physician to determine a strategy for balancing your hormones. Once the hormones are balanced, this product will fade the hyperpigmentation and it should not return.
I have black skin, which products will work for me? Our products are formulated for all skin types and tones. They can be used by African Americans with darker skin tones; however, results may take longer to be appreciated due to certain differences in darker skin types. African American skin tends to have more layers is thicker and more compact than light skin. Skin lightening is not always easy to achieve for all individuals. It all depends on genetics, resistancy of skin, and thickness of skin. Your skin will only lighten as far as it allows. This can be 1-4 shades. This part depends mostly on genetics.

More about ingredients
- Kojic Acid: Kojic Acid is a by-product in the fermentation process of malting rice. Since the enzyme Tyrosinase contains copper, Kojic Acid is able to effectively chelate (remove) the copper by lowering the PH level around Tyrosinase. Once the copper cofactor is removed, Tyrosinase activity is suppressed and hence so is melanin production.
- Glycolic Acid: Glycolic acid is a naturally occurring AHA acid derived from cane sugar. 99% of the AHAs used in the beauty industry are synthetically produced, but here at ASDM Beverly Hills, our glycolic acid is naturally sourced from cane sugar. Topically applying glycolic acid helps to chemically exfoliate the epidermis, removing dead & dull skin and bringing new skin to the surface.
- Hydroquinone: Hydroquinone is considered the primary topical ingredient for inhibiting melanin production. Its components have potent antioxidant abilities. Hydroquinone is a strong inhibitor of melanin production, meaning that it prevents skin from making the substance responsible for skin color.
- Lactic Acid: Lactic Acid peels are alpha hydroxy acids. These peels are more gentle on the skin than Glycolic and Salicylic peels. Moisturizing peel. Increases collagen production, resurfaces skin, improves skin texture. Reduces the appearance of uneven skin tone.
