B risbane has a mixture of ethnic skin types and skin colors, each with unique challenges. I work with you to create a plan that will allow you to achieve the best possible results.Ethnic skin is unique- along with the rules of skin ageing, darker skin types present with pigmentation issues, acne scarring and skin conditions like vitligo.
Facts on treating ethnic and Asian skin types
Ethnic skin, just like Caucasian skin types follow all the rules of ageing
Patients in their 20s often undertake acne scarring treatments and wrinkle prevention
Patients in their 30s to 40s present with volume replacement and treatment of skin pigmentation
Laser treatments in Ethnic and Asian skin are vastly different compared to treating fair skin patients
My favored lasers are the Picosure Focus, Fraxel, as well as Infini RF
These lasers are specifically suited for darker skin patients
Medical conditions such as vitiligo or skin whitening are more commonly seen in Ethnic skin patients
Acne scarring is more severe in Ethnic and Asian skin types, as scars often turn darker- a condition known as postinflammatory hyperpigmentation
Picosure Focus is my treatment of choice for treating dark scars
As with every ethnic skin type the balance between skin texture, volume and skin tone gives the best outcomes
Enlarged pores are more common in Ethnic and Asian skin- and my treatment of Infini and PRP can markedly reduce pore sizing
