Derm Institute Introduces New Product To Erase Age Spots

Derm Institute has introduced a new product, Cellular Brightening Spot Treatment (a.k.a., CB Spot Treatment) that erases age spots by blending DNA and stem cell technology with traditional therapeutic herbs. These dark blemishes appear on our hands, face, backs and shoulders as we age.

Derm Institute, producer of an award-winning skincare line that blends DNA and stem cell technology with traditional therapeutic herbs, has introduced a new product, Cellular Brightening Spot Treatment (a.k.a., CB Spot Treatment), that erases age spots. Also called liver spots or sun spots, these dark blemishes often appear as we age and tend to affect the hands, face, backs and shoulders. Derm Institute Operations Director Annie Hsu says that CB Spot Treatment was developed for all skin types and is formulated not only to fade age spots but to promote more radiant, firmer skin.

Though most often caused by repeated exposure to the sun and/or tanning beds, age spots also can be caused by hormonal changes, side effects of certain medications (e.g., non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, tetracyclines and psychotropic drugs), wound healing and irritation caused by some cosmetics and hair products.

“Getting rid of age spots can be one of the most frustrating and challenging aspects of caring for our skin and achieving a more youthful appearance,” says Hsu. “Our new CB Spot Treatment is a departure from other products on the market because it contains LightninC Complex, a proprietary mix of ingredients that inhibit the production of tyrosinase and melanogenesis, which are known for producing age spots.”

Hsu says that LightninC Complex contains 48% vitamin C which is 30 times more effective than Kojic acid in reducing age spots, increasing collagen synthesis and protecting collagen to improve firmness. In addition, CB Spot Treatment is hydroquinone free.

“Our formulation does not harm or irritate the skin like some other products on the market,” she said. “Rather, it significantly protects, regenerates and hydrates damaged skin.”

Hsu says that CB Spot Treatment contains Vitamin A, a natural antioxidant that helps stimulate collagen, reverses the signs of prematurely-induced photo-aging and increases skin elasticity as well as vitamin E that scavenges damaging free radicals and protects the skin from UV damage.

The 30 ml CB Spot Treatment is priced at $290 and will be available exclusively at Space NK Apothecary, Space NK counters in Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman and online at

DERM INSTITUTE’S BACKGROUND: Derm Institute was founded in 2009 by renowned skincare researcher Young Lin who created a product to improve his father’s skin, which was badly scarred and hypersensitive following chemo treatments. He used powerful herbal antioxidants to create a therapeutic ointment to reverse the damage and restore his skin back to its original health. Today, Derm Institute continues to use medical-grade ingredients as well as Eastern therapeutic herbs and plant stem cells as the foundation for its line of skin care products. The ingredients are derived from the stems and seeds of plants, which are the most durable part of the plant and least affected by pollution. In addition, its team of scientists employ the use of a microarray, a high-tech device used in the pharmaceutical industry, to test ingredients and examine gene activity. Made in America, Derm Institute products contain a potent combination of antioxidants, groundbreaking peptides and advanced delivery systems designed to achieve instant and cumulative results.
