Uneven Skin Tone

What Is Uneven Skin Tone? 

Uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, or in some cases, melasma, is a skin condition characterized by an irregular darkening of the skin. It can be caused by an overproduction of melanin, which is the pigment responsible for hair and skin colour. Dark patches and spots all over the face often occur when someone suffers from uneven skin tone.

Common Causes of Uneven Skin Tone 

Here are some causes of uneven skin tone:

  • Excessive sun exposure – Brown spots and uneven skin tone develop as a result of repeatedly being exposed to UV light and sun damage. In this case, too much melanin is being produced. 
  • Hormonal changes – Melasma occurs as a result of hormone-related hyperpigmentation caused by increased hormone stimulation. This is often experienced by pregnant women, or women taking contraceptives. 
  • Pollution – Harmful gasses and particles from traffic air pollution can penetrate the skin and lead to the development of brown spots.
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation – This cause of uneven skin tone happens as a result of scarring, which can happen after acne breakouts or skin injury. 
  • Genetics – For some individuals, hyperpigmentation is passed from generation to generation.

Uneven Skin Tone Treatment Options

There are several treatment options for uneven skin tone, depending on the cause and severity of the condition. 

The first step would be to schedule a free consultation with us, to find out the underlying cause of irregular pigmentation. A thorough skin analysis provided by our trained professionals will determine the ideal uneven skin tone treatments for you. 

These can include, but are not limited to:

  • Laser treatment
  • Clinical peels
  • Prescription of medical grade or targeted skincare products

If the pigmentation occurs on the chest or hands, there are several treatments recommended, such as BBL™ Broadband Light. 

How to Treat Uneven Skin Tone

Sunscreen Protection 

Sun exposure can worsen uneven skin tone conditions. At APT, we always advise using sunscreen as an effective treatment option. Our range of medical-grade sunscreen products, such as the Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection has an all-mineral skin shield that provides broad-spectrum protection. It is available in different shades to accommodate all skin types and colours, and has an SPF 50 UVB protection.

Chemical Peels 

Commonly referred to as clinical peels, a chemical peel is an exfoliating uneven skin tone treatment that refreshes the skin and restores its luminosity. It stimulates skin renewal, hence delivering more visible and corrective results compared to traditional facials. It is the simplest and most cost-effective form of skin resurfacing, and can safely correct hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture, acne scarring, and melasma. It takes 30 minutes to complete the procedure, delivering a gentle exfoliation of the superficial layers using one or more acids (glycolic, lactic, salicylic), in combination with fruit enzymes. 

Halo™ Laser

Priding itself as the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, this skincare technology combines tunable non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to give a deep dermal rejuvenation and epidermal renewal. It restores the skin’s radiance and gives off a youthful glow. It also corrects pigmentation issues on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. It is an effective uneven skin tone treatment that encourages collagen production as it penetrates the innermost layers of the skin.

Results You Can Expect

Depending on the treatment for uneven skin tone recommended for you, the results will vary. However, all of our treatments yield positive and encouraging results that promise a total skin rejuvenating experience. 

After choosing to undergo a clinical peel and/or laser treatment, expect to have a clearer and brighter complexion. It will correct your uneven skin tone, remove visible blemishes and eliminate any kind of skin discolouration. 

Clinical peels and laser treatments also treat:

  • Oily skin;
  • Acne breakouts; and
  • Dermal regeneration.

How Long Do Treatment Results Last?

The longevity of the results depends on the type of uneven skin tone treatment recommended for you. Some patients choose to undergo multiple treatments to ensure longer-lasting results for up to 12 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your first step would be to schedule a complimentary consultation so that we can discover the underlying cause of your irregular pigment. A thorough skin analysis will help determine options which may include laser treatment, clinical peels, or targeted skin care products.

Absolutely. Both of these areas respond very well to BBL™ Broadband Light. Always remember to protect any exposed areas of the body with broad-spectrum SPF to avoid further sun damage.

The most important product everyone should have in their skincare routine is sunscreen. We recommend a mineral-based sunscreen that is free from chemicals, with an SPF of 30 or higher. AlumierMD has some exceptional sunscreen products you may want to consider. In order to prevent sun damage, sunscreen must be worn daily, rain or shine, no exceptions!
