Pigmentation & Uneven Skin Tone

Pigmentation usually occurs from too much exposure to the sun. Too much sun can create blotchy skin that has freckles, age spots and larger discoloured skin patches. Depending on your skin type, CO2 fractional laser and PRP skin can be very effective treatments in helping reduce pigmentation and significantly improving the overall texture of your skin. For a very mild alternative with minimal downtime, we usually recommend microdermabrasion.

About Pigmentation, Uneven Skin Tone and Enlarged Pores

Hyperpigmentation can be caused by too much sun exposure. Ultraviolet rays can trigger your body to produce melanin, a dark pigment. The increased melanin may protect your body from further sun damage.

The sun doesn’t just give you an even glow. It can cause age spots and uneven skin. Many Australians get plenty of sun exposure. Even if you’re careful about sun protection, you could develop some signs of sun damage.

You can even get sun damage through glass. UVB rays, the ones that cause sunburn, don’t pass through window panes, but UVA rays can. Those can be responsible for signs of ageing.

Sun damage can also make your pores look bigger. UV exposure can inflame your skin. The thickened cells that collect around the edge of your pores may give them a larger appearance.

What Causes Pigmentation, Enlarged Pores and Uneven Skin Tone?

The sun isn’t the only thing that causes dark spots, uneven skin tone and enlarged pores. Your skin can lose elasticity as you age. When it droops, it can pull on the edges of the tiny holes at the surface, extending them. People with oily skin may naturally have larger pores than those with dry skin.

The skin can absorbs pollution and can develop dark spots from the exposure. This is especially common on the face.

Hormones may also be to blame. They can increase oil production, which can make your pores bigger. Some hormones can also affect the way that your skin produces melanin. Some women develop darkness around the cheeks, upper lip and forehead.

Beauty products and cosmetics can even make skin blotchy. Using products that contain soy can trick the body into thinking that it’s getting extra estrogen, which can make dark spots darker.

Best Treatments for Pigmentation and Uneven Skin Tone

Our skin pigmentation removal treatments aim to reverse acne scars, skin discolouration, fine lines and age spots due to ageing, and sun damage, such as freckles, sun spots, and dark patches. Our pigmentation removal treatments are also ideal for all people with stretch marks, skin trauma, hyperpigmentation, and liver spots.

The pigmentation treatment we offer patients is suitable for skin colour, skin type, and skin colour. Our laser pigmentation removal will give your skin an even tone and the best skincare results whether you have melasma patches or brown spots due to sun exposure.

CO2 Fractional Laser Treatment

Our laser clinics offer carbon dioxide fractional laser treatments to alleviate any pigment condition, such as acne scarring and the overproduction of melanin. This post-treatment involves removing dermis columns per layer while heating the moisture in your skin to trigger new skin cells’ production.

PRP Skin Treatment

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy injects your body’s platelets into part of your face, using skin needling. The platelets’ growth factors increase collagen production, which alleviates most issues, including post-inflammatory pigmentation and rosacea.

Very honest feedbacks provided each session. Positive encouragement through the journey. The beginning of my journey I was not sure and didnt see results for a while however when looking back at my session one photos to my seventh session I was amazed at the results and was encouraged to continue on. The team never gave up and provided positive alternative in my journey to ensure my hair growth results were prominent. Highly recommended treatment and beautiful team.

I have tried multiple tablets and hair supplements, which have never worked for me. When I came across the CBD clinic and I decided to try 6 PRP sessions after looking at the reviews. Throughout the treatment all the girls have been amazing, and made my experience as comfortable as possible. I am so grateful for this service. I am only halfway through the treatment, and the results have given me much more confidence already! I have seen a noticeable amount of hair growth in areas which I am lacking. I highly recommend this PRP treatment!

Amazing Experience and Transformation ! Initially I thought of searching some hair treatment places near me. Fortunately enough i found this place. I took 6 PRP sessions and I’m pleasantly surprised with the kind of transformation it has done to my hair. I’m planning to continue my treatment with them for another 6 sessions. Trust me if you’re on the verge of hair baldness this will save you. A special thanks to the amazing staff who were welcoming and gentle during the treatment sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

Laser treatments, cosmetic grade peels and PRP microneedling can reduce hyperpigmentation. Lasers and peels remove the outer layer of skin. PRP Microneedling can break up pigment. All of these cosmetic treatments can also encourage the body to produce more collagen and elastin, which can improve your complexion above and below the surface. 

Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 on a daily basis can cut down on UVA and UVB exposure. Daily exfoliation can also help. However, home treatments may not have dramatic results. They may prevent unevenness from developing in the future, but they may not remedy dark spots. Skin treatments may accelerate the appearance of age spots and uneven skin tone.  

Laser skin resurfacing and PRP rejuvenation can promote healing, stimulate collagen and reduce signs of sun damage. These skin treatments can also tighten the skin, which can make pores appear smaller.
