Although it’s often overlooked, unevenly toned skin can affect the appearance of your makeup and can even make you look older than you really are. For people suffering from skin conditions like melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a flawless skin tone might seem even more elusive. Laser toning is one of the most effective treatments for melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Laser toning uses lasers such as the enlighten® or the MedLite® Yag Laser that can reach deep into the skin and break up the pigments, leaving you with a brighter and clearer complexion. Laser toning is very comfortable and incredibly safe; instead of high heat, it uses a very gentle laser that leaves your skin undamaged. That safety also lends a quality of adaptability, so it is perfect for people of all skin types and those with other existing skin conditions.
