Hyperpigmentation and discoloration can make the skin appear blotchy and uneven. Fortunately, there are cosmetic treatments that can reveal more radiant skin. For those who would like to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and smooth out the skintone, Dr. Miguel Delgado, a California board-certified plastic surgeon, recommends a prescriptive pigment peel, specially designed to brighten the skin.
A DelgadoMD Prescriptive Pigment Peel, which combines Arbutin and vitamin A, is a non-irritating treatment that can revive the skin and brighten the appearance. The treatment is the first standardized superficial non-acid chemical peel; it prompts the skin to peel without the side effects of burning or wounding the skin. Because of its unique formula, the DelgadoMD Prescriptive Pigment Peel can safely be used on all skin types, including darker skin.
A DelgadoMD Prescriptive Pigment Peel can address three main types of hyperpigmentation:
The DelgadoMD Prescriptive Pigment Peel comes in two strengths, specially formulated to address the different levels of hyperpigmentation. Based on the type of discoloration and the characteristics of the skin, Dr. Delgado will recommend the best strength for optimal results.
|Standard Peel||Medium-Strong||Ideal for: Moderate to severe or resistant hyperpigmentation.||The peel can be repeated every 6 months if more than one peel is necessary.|
|Mini Peel||Light-Medium||Ideal for: Mild to moderate hyperpigmentation.||The peel can be repeated every 2-3 months if more than one peel is necessary.|
After the treatment, patients will leave the office with a yellow-tinged masque, which should be removed about two hours after the application with a gentle cleanser. Our facial peel specialist will advise on when the face should be cleansed. The DelgadoMD Prescriptive Pigment Peel does not require any downtime.
To accelerate healing, amplify and extend the peel benefits, both the Standard Peel and Mini Peel include a homecare product kit. The Mini Peel also includes one full size treatment cream.
