Uneven Skin Tone & Texture

We Can Effectively Treat Uneven Skin Tone and Texture

At Amethyst Aesthetics use the Opus Plasma; This one-of-a-kind laser that effectively treats uneven skin tone, acne scars, and enlarged pores.  Unlike many skin resurfacing laser treatments, the Opus Plasma does not remove entire layers of skin.  This causes fewer side-effects and up to 50% less downtime.  The Opus Plasma can treat more areas than any conventional resurfacing laser treatments on the market, with twice the overall results.

The cause of uneven skin tone, known as hyperpigmentation, is the overproduction of melanin. The dark patches in the skin are typically perceived to be “aged spots” and can make you look up to 15 years older. There are many factors that cause uneven skin tone including sun exposure, pollution, hormones, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation outlined below:

Sun Exposure

Skin damage occurs when the skin is repeatedly exposed to the suns UV rays. Brown spots and uneven skin tone develops as a result of excessive melanin being produced naturally to help the skin fight against the UV light.

Pollution

Particles and gasses from air pollution and work-related environments are able to penetrate the skin, which can lead to brown spots most commonly surfaced on the face.

Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

This is commonly referred to as the darkening of the skin resulting from acne scarring or injury.

How to maintain an even skin tone:

The best tips we can give you are to engage in routine practices applying SPF, exfoliation as often as possible, and be patient to maintain an even skin tone.  There is no quick fix for uneven skin tone by maintaining it naturally unless the maintenance had begun prior to noticing the issues.

However, we at Amethyst Aesthetics use the Opus Plasma; The only fractional laser of its kind on the market that penetrates the skin to effectively treat uneven skin tone, acne scars, and enlarged pores.  Unlike many skin resurfacing laser treatments, the Opus Plasma does not remove entire layers of skin.  Therefore, causing fewer side-effects and up to 50% less downtime.  The Opus Plasma can treat more areas than any conventional resurfacing laser treatments on the market, with twice the overall results.
