Freckle Fader

Lots of exposure to bright South Florida sun can mean a lot of freckles..

Recently, a main ingredient in a presciption lotion that is used as a skin lightener came under close scrutiny after there was a suggestion that hydroquinone may be linked to cancer in rats.

Now. A new product: Vivite Vibrance Therapy.

Local dermatologist Dr. Layne Nisenbaum says it's better when it comes to fading dark spots..

Dr. Layne Nisenbaum/Dermatologist: "It goes one step further which is interesting it inhibits the enzyme or chemical reaction in skin that causes pigmentation where as the prescription product 4% hydroquinone, actually just there is an advantage."

Vibrance is so promising that it's been named the breakthrough product of the year in Allure magazine's October issue.

Check with your dermatologist to see if Vibrance is right for you.
