Let’s be honest, pigmentation can be a bitch, so for those who have struggled with it, Evidence Skincare’s (E.S.K) new product Complexion Correction may just be the game-changer you’ve been waiting for. Complexion Correction are special patches that dissolve on your skin and are designed to specifically target hyperpigmentation, which refers to areas of the skin that are darker than the surrounding skin.

Complexion Correction by E.S.K combines scientifically proven active ingredients like 4-N-Butylresorcinol, which is a powerful substance that helps reduce hyperpigmentation, with a unique technology involving tiny dissolving needles made of hyaluronic acid. These little needles deliver the active ingredients directly into the deeper layers of your skin, providing better results.

Hyperpigmentation can be a tricky skin issue to deal with, especially things like age spots caused by sun exposure. It usually takes time and the use of multiple ingredients to see improvements. In the past, hydroquinone was considered the best ingredient for treating hyperpigmentation, but it often caused irritation and couldn’t be used for more than three months. Moreover, safety concerns have led to its banning in some places and dermatologists looking for alternatives.

Fortunately, 4-N-Butylresorcinol (4NB) is a highly effective and well-tolerated alternative. So, E.S.K’s Complexion Correction patches are a promising solution for managing hyperpigmentation, reducing fine lines, and improving skin elasticity and volume. You can use them on various areas of your face, neck, and decolletage to address these skin concerns.

“Dissolving microneedles are exactly what they sound like- hundreds of tiny needles less than one millimetre long that painlessly puncture the skin, releasing a payload of actives as they melt into the skin. The purpose is twofold- to actually traumatize your skin because when it starts to heal it stimulates a cascade of growth factors that stimulate the production of new skin cells along with collagen and elastin to rejuvenate the skin,” explains Dr Ginni Mansberg, Co-Founder of E.S.K. 

“The second is to allow – in this case- anti-pigmentation ingredients embedded in each needle to get past the skin barrier (or stratum corneum) delivering these critical ingredients directly into the deeper layers of the skin.”
