Fix patchy gradients?

Does anyone have any fixes to a patchy gradient? This photo was shot with a beauty dish on a grid, which naturally caused a gradient on the background. I enhanced it on post, but whenever I do that, it always seem to come off patchy. Not sure if you can see it but you can see the lines of different colors around the circular gradient.

Blocked model off for her privacy. Also yes, this is a bad quality screenshot from Instagram - but the purpose of my photos 99% of the time is social media so I worry about how they will be shown there.

Not sure if this is the solution but should i change the Mode > Bits/Channel settings? It was set to 8, not sure if 16 or 32 would help with that or translate well on social.
