Most of us will experience uneven skin tone at points throughout our life. It may be something that we are born with, or that arises from sun damage, hormonal changes, infections, scarring, or very commonly ageing. Where these patches of pigmentation are visibly different from our natural skin tone, it can have a damaging effect on our self-esteem. At my aesthetic clinic in Hale, Altrincham I provide a number of non-surgical treatments which effectively diminish uneven skin tones. We all deserve to look and feel fantastic; here I share the best pigmentation treatments available at KP Aesthetics.
What Do We Mean by Pigmentation?
Our skin colour is determined by a pigment called melanin. The concentration of melanin in our skin will decide our skin tone. This colour, or pigmentation, is usually down to our genetics, but there a number of other influences that can cause hyperpigmentation (darker patches) or hypopigmentation (lighter patches)

ZO Skincare Plan
ZO skincare is a range of premium products designed to help you achieve and maintain balanced, healthy, and even skin. As well as being an effective treatment for abnormal pigmentation, the range of products can be used to combat oily skin, acne, sun damage, and lines and wrinkles. These products are only available with a prescription. During our consultation I can learn about you and your unique skin at which point we can create a ZO treatment plan with the products that are most suited to your skin problem, and the desired effect.
An uneven skin tone can be the result of ageing, acne scarring, as well as a number of other factors. Peels work by resurfacing, exfoliating and remodelling the skin. The treatment reveals clear and even, youthful looking skin. At KP Aesthetics we offer three chemical peels, though the following two are most suited to pigmentation problems and together we can decide which will work best for your skin.
Enerpeel – Also known as ‘The Inner Peel’, Enerpeel is less abrasive than many other types of peel. The active ingredient in Enerpeel is absorbed in the deeper layers of skin, meaning that it can achieve results without leaving rashes or marks on the skin’s surface. It can be used to control acne, rosacea, and pigmentation, and its rejuvenating effect can reduce the signs of ageing.
The Perfect Peel – The Perfect Peel can deliver youthful, healthy looking skin after just one treatment. It contains an antioxidant which can even out patches of pigmentation, slow down the ageing process and reduce the appearance of scars.
This revolutionary aesthetic treatment was introduced to the UK in 2015.The process is referred to as redermalisation and is a multi-functional treatment that works by injecting a solution of hyaluronic acid and succinic acid into the skin. Together, these ingredients hydrate the skin, stimulate collagen production, and significantly reduce the appearance of dark circles and pigmentation.
