Solar lentigo (dark spots) and idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis (flat white spots or “white freckles”) are two different pigment disorders both caused by sun damage to the melanocyte and its environment, according to Sederma. MEL[O]STEM's approach focuses on melanocyte’s balance for proper activity, with an expert-measured 64% improvement of complexion evenness versus placebo in a clinical study.
