30 – 50% off LASER SALE, from $200 per session in a package.

‘Skin of colour’ refers to people who have a Fitzpatrick skin type of 3 or higher and require specialised laser and skin treatment. The group is susceptible to common skin concerns; acne, acne scarring, enlarged pores, unwanted facial pigmentation, wrinkles, and facial volume loss are examples. However, skin pigmentation issues are prevalent in this group, with a higher incidence of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (P.I.H.), melasma, and other pigmentation types caused by sun exposure or hereditary predisposition. Asian skin types are also more prone to enlarged pores. Though broken capillaries are not expected in this group,  rosacea affects a significant proportion of skin types 3 and 4.

P.I.H, Hyperpigmentation in “Skin of Colour”

Darker skin types are universally susceptible to P.I.H. from skin treatments (the wrong laser or I.P.L. or chemical peel). It also occurs due to skin inflammation, such as pimples, burns, or trauma. Because of their propensity for P.I.H. or rebound inflammation, Asian skin treatment require a completely different approach to the laser. Lower power, more treatments, and specialised lasers are needed.

Best Laser for Treatment of Asian Skin.

The best laser for Asian skin and ‘skin with colour’  is q switched nanosecond or pico lasers. Pico lasers not only safely treat pigmentation in darker skin types but also provide treatment for reduced pore size, fine lines and wrinkles, and general improvement through a unique (no downtime ) laser facial.

R.F. (radiofrequency) skin needling such as Infini and Secret R.F. is safe to use. These can be used for acne, scar, general skin improvement or skin tightening.

Though I.P.L. can be used safely on skin type 3 and common skin type 4 for rosacea, extreme care must be exercised as the heating accompanying I.P.L. can cause P.I.H. In addition, skin type 3 can also receive fractionated CO2, once again depending on the ethnic background. BBL is the best option for Asian skin.

Fraxel laser is also suitable for Asian skin treatment. Though radiofrequency with skin needling has lower downtime and more collagen-stimulating power. Pico-lasers target pigment without thermal heating, making them the best lasers for melasma, reducing enlarged pores and fine lines and wrinkles.

BBL for Asian Skin

BBL is approved for most skin types; however, laser therapists must exercise extreme care when treating Asian skin or skin with colour. BBL for Asian skin requires adjusting the settings down to avoid hyperpigmentation and hypo-pigmentation.

  • More treatments will be required when using BBL for Asian skin
  • Advised to use skin lightening for six weeks before BBL
  • Glisodin is recommended two weeks before treating Asian skin with BBL

Skin Care for Asian Skin & Skin of Colour.

Skin Care for darker skin types includes vitamin A, B & C for fair-skinned people. However, there is increased use of skin lightening or bleaching creams. These are often used in combination for laser treatment because they allow lasers’ safer application.
