I am 35 yrs old and since I was a teenager, I've suffered from acne. It sucked in high school- but after college, when it wasn't gone- I was so disappointed. So here I am…a thirty something- STILL trying to find the best way to clear up my skin.
After having twins five years ago, my condition got worse. Maybe hormonal- maybe what I was eating, who knows. But creams a dermatologist recommended and tons of drug store stuff later (i.e. Clearasil, oxy, etc) - they would help- but not for long.
My skin is the type to break out during certain times of the month with 4-10 pimples at a time. They go away after a few days, but what is left behind is the worst. Scars! Big, red acne scars that make the next breakout cycle more traumatic because now I know more scars are going to be left behind. My cheeks are the worst – the scars are plentiful. (I find Mac makeup – the studio fix powder the best to cover.) But still, wish I didn't have to cover my face so much!
Any rate- I'm taking time today out of my busy life to review this product. It's probably like the 75th product I've purchased for my skin in a drugstore. I had little expectations. I was a bit worried- because although it says it will get rid of my acne scars, I was afraid it may cause me to break out more. But it was cheap enough so the risk wasn't THAT great.
Well, it's been a month now since using it and I LOVE this product. My scars are noticeably lighter AND- here's the GREATEST news- I have NOT had a bad breakout since using this product- so guess what? NO NEW acne scars have appeared. My goal is to keep using this product until every single scar is gone – which I'm hoping will be in another month or two. By summer- I will be so happy to go outside with just sun screen – but not a lot of foundation caked on my face. Will keep you posted with that!
So far, I highly recommend this product both for acne breakouts and acne scars. My skin really looks so much better- and I am my own worst critic.
Good luck to you whatever you decide!

This product contains three tubes. One is straaightforward enough--a 2% hydroquinolone cream for lightening brown skin spots. That product is available in dozens of products--all much much cheaper to buy per ounce. The other two tubes contain undisclosed ingredients but appear to be just a simple cheap ineffective moisturizer. The total cost of this "system" is way too much--around [$]--when you can simply buy a Dr. Palmer product which does the same thing for about $3 at a pharmacy.. It's also 2% hydroquinilone.

    I am a middle aged woman with fair skin, sun damage and significant age spots. I have used every product imaginable, including all those with the same ingredient 2% Hydroquinolone. None of them worked, but Dr. Varon's Skin Bleaching System does. If you cannot handle your skin looking broken out or irritated for approx. 2 weeks with this product, don't use it!! If you can wait it out while following the instructions, you will be happy with the results. My brown spots are gone and my skin tone is even. I do not wear make up so this is very important to me. I use Step 1 and Step 2 sparingly twice a day to alleviate the usage disparity in the tubes(Do not try this until you are sure you can tolerate the product). If I start to see a brown spot emerging again, I use a little extra in that area until it disappears. This product has been great for me and has saved me the expense of going to a plastic surgeon for a chemical peel.

      Comments about Dr. Varon's Skin Bleaching System, 1 ea:

      I got this product three weeks ago. I used the product twice a day, in the morning and evening following the product directions very close. It starts working within a week, you'll start to see a difference. But it can be very irritating on the skin at times. It will leave burn marks. If you do get burn do not apply anymore products to that spot until it heels. It will eventually make that area brighter after it heels. I'm not saying that it's a good thing for the face to burn either. I think the product should still try to find ways to bleach without irritating. Another bad thing that happened is that I'm only getting certain parts of my face to ligthen up, which is right in the middle of my face. I can't get the areas at the outer circle of my face to lighten up. The areas that are not lighten up are my forehead, my outer cheeks area, and below my lips. So, the after effects is really turning out ugly and unven. I will say the product is not as efficient if it can't get those areas to lighten up as well. I'm very annoyed. Even I stopped using it on the areas that have already lightened up and started using only on those areas that I mentioned that are not lightening up. The product claims that everything will be brighter by one month so hopefully those areas will be even and light with my already lightened areas of my face. Also, my step 1 has already finished and step 3 is almost finish. That is why I'm writing this review. Only thing really left is Step 2 which is the one with the hydroquinone, which is the most important ingredient to lighten up.

        Comments about Dr. Varon's Skin Bleaching System, 1 ea:

        I've had dark discoloration on legs and arms due to living in a mosquito-prone area and being a tomboy w/ scratches as a kid. I have tried almost every product in the market to get rid of this dark discoloration w/out any success. I did have some good results w/ some other cream but I was not impressed and although I was soooooo skeptical about purchasing this cream, I figured it would't hurt trying it once. However, I've only used this cream for less than a month and I can actually see some excellent results. I can see the dark areas peeling away and my natural skin color showing under the bad skin. I'm soooo happy I gave this cream a try and I'm soooo happy it actually works. I only wished tube# 1 would come in a bigger size because it's the one you use the most but other than that minor set back, it is an excellent product and much cheaper than other creams I've tried.

          The product causes a break in your skin seemingly to get under the skin to bleach the dark spots, then heals up nicely and without brown spots! Two large brown spots are now gone from my hand!

            I use the Brightening Lotion under makeup daily. It flushes my face for a minute, but does add a glow. The Liquid Microdermabrasion is the best I've ever tried. It gently exfoliates. I use it about twice a week. I don't use the 2% Hydroquinone Dermal Treatment. Instead I use a 4% Hydroquinone prescription from my Dermatologist. I prefer stronger since I am 71. I use it mainly on my hands. Overall, I love this product. The price is great too!

            Comments about Dr. Varon's Skin Bleaching System, 1 ea:

            I had high hopes for this product and after reading the reviews decided to give it a chance and be patient. After 6 weeks, I'm disappointed. There is no apparent improvement in the dark blotches on my neck and I'm tired of my face breaking out. I've been religious about using as directed. Only real difference I've noticed is lots more break-outs on my face and extreme dry, scaly skin at the base of my neck (had to resort to a fine emery cloth to remove the scales). No improvement in discoloration or wrinkles. Active ingredient 2% hydroquinone is the same as Porcelana and other less expensive OTC products.
