Dull Skin

Dull Skin Treatment - Before
Dull Skin Treatment - After

Dull skin that looks tired and lifeless can be caused by a myriad of factors. If you have a boring, lacklustre complexion, you know that it can put a dampen on your self-confidence. No amount of makeup can substitute for the happiness that a naturally luminous and dewy skin can give you. Thankfully, there are now anti-dull skin treatments that can bring back your skin’s natural radiance and glow.

What Causes Dull Skin?

Having dull skin is often characterized by a pale and rough complexion devoid of the natural luminosity and rosy glow on the cheeks often associated with good health, beauty, and youth. It can be caused by several contributing factors, such as:

  • Excessive stress – can give a surge in cortisol, which affects blood flow to the skin and impede skin repair
  • Dehydration – which decreases blood flow to the skin, making you look pale and sick
  • Environment – air pollutants, low humidity, and harsh winds can wreak havoc on the skin
  • Sun damage – years of unprotected exposure to harmful UV rays can cause skin roughness, dullness, imperfections, and accelerate skin aging 
  • Poor lifestyle habits – smoking, unhealthy way of eating, and sleep deprivation can all mess up skin health
  • Lack of good skincare habits – neglecting to exfoliate, hydrate, and moisturize the skin as needed can be a recipe for dull skin
  • Aging – In young people, skin cells turn over every 28 days. By the time one reaches age 40, cellular turnover has slowed to every 40 days. As dead skin cells build-up, the skin can no longer reflect light effectively, thus resulting in dullness and uneven skin tone and texture.

The Best Treatments for Dull Skin

Say goodbye to dull skin with revolutionary skincare treatments from APT Medical Aesthetics


BBL (Broadband Light) is an innovative light treatment that effectively penetrates the epidermis and targets and breaks down the cells that produce melanin in the skin. Aside from giving you a brighter and clearer complexion that looks more refreshed, BBL Photofacial is also a proven effective treatment against various kinds of hyperpigmentation issues, skin discoloration, rosacea, and melasma. It’s also often used to achieve flawless skin and get rid of unwanted hair anywhere in the body. This is an excellent treatment to combat dull skin, it can be used virtually in any part of the body, from the face, shoulders, back, chest, and even hands. 

Clear + Brilliant

Clear + Brilliant® is an innovative laser skin resurfacing treatment that is guaranteed to be non-invasive, quick, comfortable, and gentle on your skin. It is an excellent way to maintain your youthful and radiant skin while proactively preventing the early signs of aging. With a complete session lasting anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, this is the perfect skincare secret for people with a busy and fast-paced lifestyle. It promises a porcelain-like complexion by reducing the visibility of flaws, minimizing enlarged pores, and giving you gorgeous glowing skin.

Halo Laser

Halo™ is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. This revolutionary skincare technology from Sciton combines tunable non-ablative (1470nm) and ablative (2940nm) wavelengths to deliver deep dermal rejuvenation and epidermal renewal that no other treatment can offer. This unique skincare technology addresses dull skin by accurately penetrating the innermost layers of the dermis and encouraging generous collagen production. You can count on continuous anti-ageing and skin-enhancing benefits months post-treatment. 

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels or clinical peels are the easiest and most cost-effective form of skin rejuvenation. It involves exfoliating layers of dark, dry, and dull skin and revealing a plump and more youthful skin underneath. It’s an effective anti-dull skin treatment because it promotes skin renewal by stimulating quick turn over dead skin cells.

Medical-Grade Skincare

Incorporating medical-grade skincare into your beauty routine preserves the results of your dull skin treatments. They are guaranteed safer and more effective than drugstore skincare products as they are backed by thorough research and are recommended by dermatologists and clinicians. They contain higher concentrations of active ingredients that can transform dull skin in no time.

Results You Can Expect from Dull Skin Treatments

Results vary depending on your preferred method of dull skin treatment. Some may require multiple sessions to get the desired results. Here are some examples.

  • With Clear + Brilliant, a single treatment session is usually enough to achieve dramatic improvements in your overall skin quality with continuous enhancement seen in one to two weeks post-treatment.
  • Halo holds true to its promise of skin rejuvenating experience with noticeable effects seen right after post-treatment redness has subsided within a couple of hours. You’ll see your skin instantly brighter and visibly free from imperfections.
  • BBL may be combined with other cosmetic treatments like Halo to maximize the results. Treatments range between three and five sessions spaced one month apart, depending on the severity of your concerns. Dull skin and hyperpigmentation due to sun damage become less visible after each treatment. 
  • Chemical peels help achieve flawless skin that glows from within. A maintenance peel may be necessary twice to three times a year to keep the beautiful results.
