This is great for those brown spots and freckles I've gotten from sun damage over the years. Being a redhead, I can never get rid of them completely. That being said, I do believe Lytera has lightened a lot of those dark spots. In addition to my face, I started using it on my chest and I really see a difference there.

Recommended by my dermatologist, so glad she did. Within first week my skin has a new glow and feels so smooth.

First time using product-highly recommended by my dermatologist. Does not feel heavy or greasy which is a big plus. Excited for results.
LOVE this product

LOVE this product
I love SkinMedica

And I love SkinCareRx's estheticians who help me when I have questions. I had used Lytera and at first had a negative reaction due to using it with a sample of a retinol product from a different line. I stopped combining the two and let my face clear up. Then I started back on the Lytera alone and it did not irritate my skin. In fact, it seems to brighten gradually. I added SkinMedica's Retinol 0.5 and of course they work well together. Lytera seems to add an angelic aura to my face. I love this line.

The next best thing to a laser to lighten hyperpignentation and much less expensive! Just a few drops daily and in a short time I noticed a reduction in the appearance of sun damage on sides of face. Consistency is crucial, and it's pricey, but there's enough for many weeks. I've tried others, but this is the one I recommend to my facial clients.

This product is absolutely amazing! I could tell a huge difference in my age spots in about 3 months. Great product!
Light & bright!

This stuff gets better and better the longer you use it. My skin is even toned, bright and dewy. People tell me I'm glowing!

I've only been using this product for approximately a month and have noticed a facial brightness. I really love this product.
Posted 2/17/2015 by Louie
Great product. Actually works! Someone actually noticed that my age spots had decreased.
Posted 2/14/2015 by Debbie
This is now my 2nd order of Lytera. Don't think slight age spots have faded but I "think" my overall skin tone has improved slightly. Maybe too soon to see full extent.

Good for sensitive skin and not as strong as hydroquinone but no significant improvement.
Posted 1/29/2015 by Jen
This by far is the most amazing product for even skin tone.. I can not live without it everyday...
Posted 1/28/2015 by Lynnette
It has been 8 weeks and I am starting to see an improvement in the tone of my skin. I have a few dark spots from using hormone therapy and they have faded slightly. I love the smell of this product and I like how my skin glows when I apply it. I would recommend this product but be patient...it works slowly and is not a dramatic difference.
Better tone with prolonged use

This product was recommended to me by my dermatologist. I'm from Florida and my skin has suffered from some sun spots. I used to use bleaching cream but you can only use those kind of products for three months or so (or even shorter.) With this product, you can use it for as long as you want. It smells great and does take longer than you'd probably want to see results but after a while, your skin tone does brighten. I'd say this product gradually helps you. It's a great alternative to bleaching cream simply because you can use it as long as you want.

This is wonderful! It gives you a smooth, even complexion and makes your skin glow. I use this in the morning only (I use the TNS Essential Serum at night). I'm already seeing results with lightening and it's only been a few weeks. I have combination sensitive skin and I've had no irritation with this product.
Posted 1/15/2015 by Maggie
After 6 weeks, I am beginning to see a difference on my face. Like it. I still don't see a difference on my dark circles but definitely on my skin tone.
Posted 1/13/2015 by Maggie
Seeing a little result but haven't been using the product as long as it stated you should. Started working.
Posted 1/2/2015 by Maggie
So far ok, but I have only been using it for about 3 weeks.
A safe lightener
Posted 12/24/2014 by Ruth
Lytera works to lighten up my freckles and dark spots. It didn't do anything to my melasma yet but I am willing to keep using it for a few more months. This is the safer method to lighten up with no risks.
Posted 12/21/2014 by Rainbow
I was born with lots of freckles. With my age advancing, I also get melasma on my face. I find that Lytera is able to lighten my spots but not the melasma. I am going to work with it for more months to see if it helps with melasma.
Seems to work

On the recommendation of my dermatologist, I use this to fade brown spots. It definitely has faded some of the lighter spots - some darker spots are still visible, but slightly lighter. I use it on face, neck, forearms and back of hands.

I've been using various lighteners - prescription and non - for about 10 years now to deal with sunspots. I've also done numerous microdermabrasion treatments. This product isn't perfect but after 8 weeks, it has diminished my dark spots better than any previous treatment.
Posted 11/25/2014 by Sheryl
Lyter works- I have hyper pigmentation and the serum helps to keeps keep the pigmentation down. I used lytera for over 3 months and notice a lot of improvements....My skin is brighter and softer. This is the best serum!
Posted 11/16/2014 by Kasia
I have been using it for about six months and some of my sun spots have faded considerably.
Posted 11/12/2014 by razzledazzle7
I have only been using this producs for a few weeks, but I am noticing a fading of dark spots and my skin also has an overall brighter look. I have used several products (not SkinMedica), to address the hyperpigmentation issues, but this has produced the best results to date. Definitely worth trying. Thanks to SkincareRX discounts, as otherwise I probably could not purchase this product.
Posted 9/12/2014 by rebecca
This stuff has almost completely cleared my dark spots after 3 months of use. I apply twice daily (AM/PM) over my Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum. Both products have shown dramatic results. I love that there is real science behind this companies products. My skin gal took before and after photos and this product works waaayyyy better then the Rx and Obagi lightener I was using before. Say goodbye to hydroquinone ladies!
great brightening serum
Posted 9/6/2014 by Marian
I use this product after the TNS essential serum. Skinmedica products are best used layered. This one take a bit longer to see results, but it has faded my age spots on my face to the point where there aren't really any and I'm 45 years old. I recommend this as part of the Skinmedica routine.
Posted 6/16/2014 by valerie
I've used tretinoin and other retinA products, but they don't seem to rub in. I have seen good results with the Lytera - noticed them after about 1 month of use. Although expensive, I recommend waiting for a good rebate or sale and taking the plunge.

I had some areas of hyperpigmentation on my cheeks and was using hydroquinone cream for that didn't seem to be working. I started using this product and have really noticed a difference in the last month. I've gotten a lot of compliments on my skin. The areas of discoloration have really improved!
So far, so good

I have been using this product for almost two weeks...it's too early too tell but so far I like it. I have no harsh reaction or break outs. I just hope it will do what it says and that I will see results in 4 weeks or longer. I bought this after reading a review that I found online. I have hyperpigmentation/dark spots from laser and acid peels from the past. I've been using Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum for three months with little results and was looking for a replacement. I refused to shell out another $170 for a less than two ounce bottle and I'm glad I found Lytera. It's cheaper and you get two ounces! The product is not fragrance free but it's not overpowering at all. The initial smell is like cinnamon gum but after 30 seconds it's gone. I will update in 4 weeks!
love this product
Posted 3/21/2013 by Carolynn
I will agree that this product is not fragrance free, however, I don't find the fragrance that unpleasant. I received this product as a sample with some M2 products that I ordered. I have moderated to severe hyper-pigmentation. I have been very discouraged with many products I have purchased to help correct. The best results I have had with a prescription of 10% hydroquinone cream, which I know is not good to use, not to mention it is very expensive and does not last long. I used this Lytera skin brightening, in combination with the M2 'mama lotion'. I noticed a difference in just a couple of days. I will say that the Mama lotion is new to me as well, however, I have been using the M2 20% refining lotion for about a year. To date, I am experiencing the very best results ever, even after several invasive laser treatments followed by the use of the 10% hydroquinone. I really hope that if there is anyone out there that is experiencing hyper-pigmented skin and is looking for a solution that they would give this product a try, if you don't like it, return it. As I mentioned earlier, I noticed a significant difference right away. Less than two weeks and I am no longer using a concealer under my makeup! I will be ordering this product today!
