Urban Skin Rx®, an unparalleled line of clinical skincare products, was developed by Rachel Roff, a highly successful Licensed Aesthetician. In 2006 Rachel opened her own medical spa, in Charlotte, NC, and it quickly became the leading medical spa and laser center for treating melanin-rich skin. Through her experience working on clients, Rachel learned which ingredients and formulations most effectively improved common conditions in skin of color, including hyperpigmentation and melasma. Recognizing the wide unmet need for products to address the concerns of diverse skin tones, Rachel founded Urban Skin Rx® in 2010. Urban Skin Rx® and Pro Strength™ collections include effective, targeted solutions with scientifically researched ingredients to help reduce the appearance of dark marks and uneven skin tone. The brand also offers additional products that smooth texture, reduce the visible signs of aging and fight acne and dry skin. Urban Skin Rx® is sold online at urbanskinrx.com and at Target, Ulta, Walmart, Walgreens, Amazon, CVS, QVC.com, HSN.com and Dermstore.com. In 2020, the brand launched its first international distribution in Nigeria.

- Mineral Oil

- Mercury and mercury compounds

USRx® is also committed to increasing the sustainability of our packaging. In the near future, 100% of our packaging will contain post-consumer recycled plastic, sugarcane or recycled material.
What is it?
Ditch those dark spots and reveal more even-toned skin! Retinol Rapid Repair & Dark Spot Treatment is a dark spot’s worst enemy and your new bestie if you struggle with annoying or stubborn skin discolorations. The secret weapon in this formula is of course, Retinol, which goes to work to exfoliate and enhance the look of skin tone, texture, breakouts and post-breakout marks and get you on the road to smooth, glowing skin. There’s also Kojic Acid to target hyperpigmentation and 5% Niacinamide to improve the look of dark spots, aging skin, and redness caused by skin irritants. Also features our ClearTone Advanced Technology® that works overtime to reveal a healthier and more even-looking complexion. This is one powerful dark spot busting treatment!
After cleansing, apply to the full face, avoiding the eye area. Begin by applying every other night. After 2-3 weeks, increase to applying every night if tolerated. It is normal for skin dryness and peeling to occur for the first 2-3 weeks of use. If experiencing irritation, reduce application to every third night and gradually increase to every other night. You can even use this treatment to target specific dark spots by alternating every other application between the full face and directly to the dark spot itself. And because dryness is normal, it is essential to always follow with a moisturizer. In the daytime, always protect skin with a broad spectrum SPF 30 or higher and limit sun exposure while using this product.
Aesthetician Tip: If just starting out or your skin is dryer, we recommend mixing this formula with a moisturizer to dilute the strength. We suggest using our Even Tone Barrier Repair Ceramide Cream.
Who Should Use
If you are looking to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, dark spots, sun damage, pore size and the signs of aging, this is for you! We don’t recommend this product for sensitive skin types.

Is the Retinol Rapid Repair & Dark Spot Treatment only to be used at night?
We recommend this product only be used at night since it contains Retinol and other ingredients that make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Make sure to wear an SPF 30 or higher during the day.
Do I put this product on my full face or just the dark spots?
This product should be used on the entire face to avoid blotches from spot treatments; however, if marks are especially stubborn, you can alternate between spot treating and applying to the full face.
Are your products tested on animals?
No. We take pride in being a cruelty-free company!
