About skin tone and discolouration

What affects skin tone?

One of the main ways that we judge our appearance is by the colour and texture of our skin – our skin tone. The more even the colour and smoother the texture, the younger we appear and more attractive we feel.

But there are a number of factors that affect skin tone anywhere on the face and body, due to changes in the distribution of melanin (skin pigmentation or colouring) or the amount of collagen and elastin (which gives skin its volume and texture).

Sun damage

The effect of sun and free radical damage is a major cause of change in skin tone.

Long periods of exposure to UV rays from sunlight can cause damage to skin cells.

This may lead to darker patches called ‘age spots’ or ‘liver spots’ appearing particularly on the face and hands, and can reduce levels of collagen and elastin so that skin sags and wrinkles prematurely.

Other causes

There are other causes of skin discolouration or pigmentation, such as birthmarks and melasma (often called the ‘mask of pregnancy’) in which light or dark brown areas develop - particularly on the face - in a cluster or big patch rather than as spots or freckles.

Most such conditions are not harmful or uncomfortable in themselves, but they are important cosmetically and understandably can be upsetting for anyone affected by them.

While we can’t always stop some of the signs of ageing skin, such as fine lines and wrinkles, we can do much to maintain a healthy and youthful skin tone and reduce these unwanted signs.

See below for the range of treatments and products at Skin Perfection.

Treatments for discoloured and sun-damaged skin

We offer the following treatments for skin discolouration, sun damage and pigmentation.

  • Laser photofacial skin rejuvenation improves skin tone and texture, with minimal downtime, and is suitable for a range of conditions including sun damage, wide and localised areas of pigmentation (discolouration), and ageing skin: click here for more details.
  • Laser pigmentation removal is a targeted laser treatment for removing superficial and deeper-lying (epidermal and dermal) pigmented and sun damaged areas, particularly on the face, forehead, shoulders and arms: click here for more details.
  • Skin peels or resurfacers help to improve skin texture, are suitable for a range of conditions including pigmentation (discolouration) and are available in different strengths and with different downtimes according to your skin condition: click here for more details.

In your consultation, we may discuss combining two or more of these procedures in a treatment plan that will help maximize results.

    I have been coming here for the last year and can honestly say it is one of the best salons I’ve been to… I’ve been having the micro needling treatment and my skin has never been better. I would highly recommend this treatment and salon.

    I’ve been coming here for over a month now for blue LED light treatment and can’t recommend enough! The treatment itself has done wonders for my acne, the staff are lovely and the location is great. I also think the prices are very reasonable and have recommended Skin Perfection to my sister, who has started the same treatment.

    I have visited the saloon for 6 course of yellow LED light therapy. The ladies there are all very nice and gave me full information about the treatment before during and after the course of 6. It is quite difficult to take appointment within a short time so i suggest to book your slot asap as they get fully booked very easily. …

    Skin Perfection is one of the best clinics I have ever been to, they know what they talking about when it comes to your skin… When you first step in the clinic you are made to feel very welcome not rushed and they listen to what your concerns are about your skin, and what products will be best for your skin.

    I had my first session of laser hair removal today. I was anxious but Lauren B was very informative, professional and patient. I even noticed results from my patch test. The clinic is sparkling clean and clinically spotless. They are fully informed and professionally trained and I’m looking forward to the rest of my treatments. …

    … I’m delighted with the results of my recent LVL (“lash volume lift”) treatment. Lilly added volume and dimension to my stick straight, long blonde lashes. The curl and blue/black tint really made them pop! I feel so pretty and awake now without makeup, and with mascara, the extra drama is intense in the best way. So happy I found a way to enhance my lashe without those high-maintenance and damaging extensions.

    … I have had a course of skin treatments: photofacial rejuvenation combined with a peel and my skin feels so much better for it. It can be uncomfortable during treatment but definitely worth the results.
    Steph Haverly

    I’d highly recommend Skin Perfection. I’ve used them for my lazer hair removal and it has been extremely successful. They are incredibly professional, fast and organised, always texting or calling before appointments, always on time and the treatment itself has worked really well and I’m going to continue using them for more.
