What is Improving Skin Tone?

Our skin is a phenomenal defense system, however as we age, those defense systems age as well. Extrinsic factors such as UV exposure, pollution, and other lifestyle factors, as well as intrinsic processes, such as hormonal changes, can lead to a breakdown in cellular communication. This miscommunication can cause an over-stimulation of melanocytes (the areas of our skin that create pigment) and lead to brown spots and freckles, or even large patches of a medical condition called melasma. It can also lead to other processes being affected that slow or alter the cellular turnover of our skin. By addressing the cause and correcting the cellular processes of the skin, we can begin to clear the skin of any issues in its tone.

Candidates for Improving Skin Tone

We can all be candidates for this type of treatment throughout our lifetimes. As we age, skin tone issues will likely occur in one form or another. Depending on the type of skin tone problem, we can create a comprehensive skin health plan to give you clear, bright, glowing, and healthy skin.
