Inspired by the latest cosmetic advancements, this intensive anti-spot serum helps diminish the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation for skin that looks perfectly translucent. It thoroughly targets various types of spots; from those that are particularly dark and defined to the scattered, smaller spots that are blurred and widely distributed over the face. Target spots with laser speed. Resist the appearance of spots over time.

  • In 2 weeks 73% of consumers felt the serum was effective on visible dark spots but also scattered spots like tiny spots and blurred spots.**
  • In 12 weeks 81% felt the serum was superior in reducing scattered dark spots than spot removal lasers**
  • Can also be used before and after brightening cosmetic procedures such as laser spot removal.*

*Tested on skin before and after undergoing a procedure at a clinic. Avoid inflamed areas of skin. **Based on an independent Asian consumer study by 93-100 women.


How to use

To Use: Apply morning and evening, after softening and strengthening. Push pump twice to dispense serum onto palm and smooth over face. Follow with moisturizer.

With using the Waso line, should I just use this to lighten my dark under eye circles, or should I use it everywhere on my face to reduce my acne? I have a darker complexion but I don't want to end up looking pale either. Thank you for your advice:)

Asked by: Vivian
Hi Vivian, if you want to treat dark circles under your eyes, we recommend trying our White Lucent Anti-Dark Circles Eye Cream. White Lucent MicroTargeting Spot Corrector (Serum) should be applied on the face only. It will not heal acne, but it will help to fade dark spots left by acne. Our White Lucent products will not lighten your overall skin tone, they will brighten your complexion and help fade dark spots. We hope this helps!

Hi, Is it overwhelming to use Glow Revival Serum and White Lucent MicroTargeting Spot Corrector together? If not, which one should be applied first? Thank you.

Asked by: T D
Hello, you can use both serums if you would like! Just make sure you use them consistently to get the best results. If fading dark spots is your main concern, then apply White Lucent MicroTargeting Spot Corrector (Serum) first. If reducing the appearance of redness for an even and bright skin tone is your top priority, then apply Bio-Performance Glow Revival Serum first. We hope this helps!

MicroTargeting Spot Corrector (Serum) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this serum I'm using this for 3 weeks and I see the diferente

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work Effectively I tried this serum product from a sample.. I initially used the silver bottle serum corrector from a sample and noticed the spots became lighter, however I am seeing the spots have been reducing, becoming brighter and lighter on my dark spots after I upgraded to MicroTargeting Spot Corrector (Serum). This MicroTargeting Spot Corrector (Serum) works more effectively.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not working for me! No age-spot reduced effect. Caused acnes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I use this product daily, and it's made a difference in my dark spots. It works better than other products I've tried for lightening uneven skin tone. I have sensitive skin, and the product doesn't irritate it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work for me at all. I wish I had known about the 3-month return policy earlier. I was trying to give the product ample time to show a difference. In contrast to a Shiseido spot corrector I had previously used, this one had no noticeable effect. Very disappointing as now I, a loyal Shiseido customer, have to turn to another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product I use this serum for 30 days.The results are amazing: bright, fresh looking skin. I recommend to use it in conjunction with White lucent emulsion or with moisturizer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Revision to an earlier review of this White Lucent Serum I purchased this product and submitted an earlier comment that it really didn't work as effectively as I'd hoped. But to be fair, after a few weeks of use, I am now noticing significant improvement in reducing sun spots. So given time, it does work.
