Sofia is a 40 year old woman who has noticed annoying dark spots (lentigines) underneath her eyes and on her forehead and temples. Her mother and two maternal aunts have similar spots.


She reports that she has been using more concealer in recent years to hide these spots, and would like to have them lightened. She saw a dermatologist in the past who dismissed them as “old age” spots and told her not to worry about them.


She finds out about My Skin of Color on Facebook and learns that there are safe and effective ways to treat these spots. She has a prescription for FDA approved, triple action fade cream the next day.
