To improve patient care and outcomes, leading dermatologists offered their recommendations on pigment correctors. Consideration must be given to:

  • dEp Patch Full Face Mask
    Activaderm, Inc
    “This product uses microcurrent to push vitamin C into the skin. Vitamin C, a known antioxidant that usually has a difficult time passing through the stratum corneum, corrects pigmentary abnormalities. The product also comes with a botanical pigment corrector.”—Gary Goldenberg, MD, New York, New York
  • De-Spot Skin Brightening Corrector
    Peter Thomas Roth Labs LLC
    “This product is a useful over-the-counter adjunct to prescription-strength hydroquinone, with niacinamide as one of the active ingredients.”—Shari Lipner, MD, PhD, New York, New York
  • Glytone Dark Spot Corrector
    Pierre Fabre Laboratories
    “With 2% hydroquinone, glycolic acid, and kojic acid, you have a highly effective combination of ingredients that work synergistically to lighten areas of skin discoloration.”—Jeannette Graf, MD, Great Neck, New York
