For age spots, you have to use the Made from Earth Carrot Serum. The carrot seed oil in the product was recommended by my dermatologist, and worked better than some of the expensive treatments I tried. The serum is only $20.

The age spots on my hands are gone and the age spot on my face is fading away.

I use it about 2-3 times per week, and saw the age spot diminish around week 2. Highly recommend it....

I have some age spots/sun spots on my face. I've tried everything to remove them and Dermalmd Lightening Serum actually lightens them. I've only used it for a few weeks now but I am seeing results. They are lighter. Remember to apply the serum to only the spots as the skin around them will lighten too making them never seem to fade. It is tricky to do this, but this serum actually works. I am pleased.

use this for my spots and it soothes them so well.
I would recommend if you have oily skin as this kind of forms a layer as it a gel consistency and is quite cooling to the skin.
Avoid this if you have dry skin, as this may irritate and make the skin feel even more dry as isn't made to be a moisturiser but rather be ut on top or with moisturiser.
