There are several causes for uneven skin. One of the most common is an overproduction of melanin. This hormone is responsible for giving your hair and skin its color and protecting your skin from UV ray damage. Melanin production is the one of the body’s ways of protecting the skin, however, overproduction can cause skin to appear patchy and uneven.
There are many reasons that your body can begin to produce extra melanin. Too much sun, hormonal changes, or scarring are just a few of them. Whatever the causes for your skin’s uneven tone, there are now some amazing ways to reverse and correct it.
CORRECTING UNEVEN SKIN TONE
Kwan Dermatology offers a menu of products specifically created to brighten and even your skin’s tone, such as Dr. Kwan’s Fade Away Lotion — which was created by our founder — Vitamin C Brightening Serum, or PCA Skin’s Pigment Gel. We also offer an array of corrective treatments, such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser treatments, and pulsed light therapies, that work wonders to correct uneven skin tone. Mother Nature also provides some all-natural remedies for skin brightening that you can do at home. We recommend using baking soda as an exfoliant to slough off dead skin cells and reveal brighter skin, or you can formulate an at-home mask comprised of skin-evening ingredients such as sandalwood, manuka honey, or yogurt. Whatever the method you choose, Kwan Dermatology is here to offer you tips and solutions to achieve the bright, even skin tone you desire.
