A radiant, even skin complexion looks great on everyone. Clear and healthy skin reflects light, creating a luminous glow that attracts the eye. Uneven skin tone is defined as areas of pigment on the skin that differ from your natural skin colour. This pigmentation may occur in the form of redness, brown spots, freckles, acne marks, or melasma.

The most significant cause of uneven skin tone is sun exposure. In order to protect itself from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation, the skin produces extra melanin. Unfortunately, this excess melanin is what triggers the formation of brown spots. Inflammation caused by repeated sun exposure will also cause skin redness, particularly in those who are sensitive.

Certain skin conditions will also contribute to uneven skin tone, including rosacea, melasma, and acne. Treatments that address uneven skin tone can include BBL™, Halo™ laser, Clinical Peels, and medical grade skincare.

BBL™ for treatment of uneven skin tone.

Frequently Asked Questions

My skin appears blotchy and I consistently need to apply concealer in order to even it out. What are my options?

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.
 

I have brown spots on my chest and hands. Can these areas be treated?

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.
 

What skin care products do you recommend to keep my skin even-toned and radiant?

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!
