Uneven Skin Tone

Uneven skin tone is characterized by variations in skin color or pigmentation, often resulting from factors such as sun damage, scarring, or skin conditions, and can be a cosmetic concern for many individuals.

Uneven Skin Tone in NYC

Uneven skin tone, or hyperpigmentation, is a common skin concern that can affect your look—and your confidence. Precision Aesthetics is committed to providing innovative solutions for uneven skin tone, utilizing advanced treatments like Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy and SilkPeel.

What is uneven skin tone?

Uneven skin tone occurs when melanin, the pigment that gives our skin its color, is overproduced in certain areas, leading to darkened patches.

Uneven skin tone, also known as hyperpigmentation, is a common skin condition characterized by irregular darkening of the skin. This happens due to an overproduction of melanin, the natural pigment that determines skin, hair, and eye color.

Various factors can trigger this melanin overproduction, including sun exposure, hormonal changes, aging, inflammation, and certain skin injuries or conditions.

Types of skin tone issues


    Freckles are small, concentrated spots of melanin that typically appear on sun-exposed areas of the skin. They are often associated with fair skin and genetic predisposition.


    Also known as liver spots or solar lentigines, age spots are flat, brown, gray, or black spots that commonly appear on sun-exposed areas in older adults.


    Dark circles under the eyes are often caused by aging, fatigue, or genetics. They can make you look tired and older than your age.


    Melasma is characterized by brown or gray-brown facial patches, often triggered by hormonal changes or sun exposure.

Our treatments for uneven skin tone: Dr. Zdinak

Explore our range of treatments for uneven skin tone, meticulously curated by Dr. Zdinak. We specialize in advanced therapies tailored to effectively address hyperpigmentation and restore a balanced complexion.


    Our Alma IPL device uses intense pulsed light to target and break down excess melanin in the skin. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy is particularly effective for treating freckles and age spots, helping to achieve a more even skin tone.


    SilkPeel uses medical-grade diamonds to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells and shrink pores while simultaneously infusing specialized skin serums to deeply hydrate, brighten, and even skin discolorations in one quick and incredibly refreshing office procedure.


    Recovery from IPL therapy is typically straightforward and involves minimal downtime. Immediately after the treatment, you might experience some redness, swelling, and a sensation like a mild sunburn. These reactions subside within a few hours to a couple of days. Darkened spots may appear more pronounced initially but fade over time as they come to the skin’s surface and flake off. Protecting your skin from the sun after IPL therapy is essential, as it will be more sensitive to sunlight. Applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily and avoiding direct sun exposure can help protect your skin and enhance the results of the treatment. 


    After your SilkPeel procedure, please refrain from using retinoids and other acids for three days. Please make sure to use sunblock daily. This will ensure the best result possible. Also, we recommend not waxing the treated area for five days after your treatment date.
