Pigmentation In Santa Monica, CA

Evidence-based, results-driven™
Kao Aesthetics

Everyone wants clear, evenly toned skin. Over time, life and aging can thwart this preference with discolorations, sun spots, and rough patches that dull the surface and make it look older than it needs to. These inconsistencies in pigmentation are very treatable, and there are multiple options to choose from.

KAO Aesthetics offers many facial services, medical aesthetic devices, and at-home skin care products to help restore more even-toned and textured skin.

Effectively treats skin discoloration, sun spots, uneven tone, redness, and blotchiness.

Even Your Skin With Pigmentation Correction

The following aesthetic tools and products help enhance the appearance of skin by removing areas of inconsistent pigmentation. Some require several treatments; others show significant results after one session.

All of these treatments can be combined with boosters for additional improvement. Treatments are customized to the patient based on their specific cosmetic needs.  

SkinFinity RF

SkinFinity RF is a resurfacing device that uses radiofrequency energy to improve skin tone, laxity, and texture. In addition to correcting pigment, this energy has also been shown to remove fine lines, stretch marks, and acne scars. It is safe for all skin types and requires no downtime.

Clear + Brilliant®

Clear + Brilliant is a procedure that uses fractional laser technology to address the early signs of aging skin, such as sun damage. By creating micro-injuries in the epidermis, this tool triggers a natural healing response, heightening cellular renewal and skin improvement.

KAO Aesthetics offers traditional Clear + Brilliant and Clear + Brilliant with the Perméa handpiece for optimal skin tone, texture, and permeability.

Clear + Brilliant is also known to help reduce the appearance of melasma.

Microneedling evens out skin tone by making thousands of micro-wounds in the surface. These small punctures force the body to generate naturally occurring proteins like collagen and elastin, helping to reduce pigmentation concerns.

Microneedling can be performed alone or in combination with customizable boosters to brighten the skin further.

Microneedling Boosters

Natural Marine Extract is composed of compounds from twelve marine species that improve fibrocyte function to allow for the natural production of your skin’s collagen and elastin.

Custom Brightening Compounds are devised to treat specific pigmentation issues in different skin types—they can consist of a combination of naturally occurring materials and chemicals.

Hydroquinone Boosters are chemical compounds used to target dark spots, acne scars, melasma, and post-inflammatory marks.

Facials and Peels

Another option for evening and clarifying tones are facials and peels. These treatments are lighter and require consistent effort; however, they are beneficial for those who cannot experience more significant downtime.

Facials and peels may also be delivered in combination with other cosmetic procedures for more dramatic results.

Diamond Glow Lumixyl Brightening involves a series of treatments and can be done in combination with other advanced medical aesthetic treatments for accelerated results. This technique requires consistent application.

Oxygen Brightening harnesses oxygen to reverse sun damage and other pigmentation issues. It works to promote the natural production of collagen. While there is no downtime, it requires commitment to a series of treatments to see significant improvement in pigmentation.

VI Precision Plus is a medium-depth chemical peel that works well on sun-damaged areas. A series of three peels is recommended for best results.

Cosmelan MD with HQ is an advanced depigmentation peel that offers noticeable improvements to the appearance of acne scars, melasma, and liver spots with just one treatment.
