Although plastic surgery skin rejuvenation procedures are usually equally suitable for all skin types, but the same cannot be said about non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. Particularly, in case of people with ethnic skin, they are often told that skin rejuvenation non-invasive treatments are not appropriate for them.
However, an experienced skin care expert will be able to recommend safe and effective skin rejuvenation non-surgical treatments for ethnic skin. Dedicated cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides skin rejuvenation treatments for ethnic patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Characteristics of Ethnic Skin
One of the key characteristics of people with ethnic skin, including Hispanics, Asians, and African Americans, is that their skin has a relatively higher concentration of melanocytes. This creates a higher production of melanin in their skin.
Therefore, if ethnic skin with higher melanin concentration is treated aggressively, it may lead to hyper or hypopigmentation. An experienced provider can offer appropriate plastic surgery and non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments that are safe and effective for ethnic skin.
Laser Genesis by Cutera is a non-ablative skin treatment that will reduce the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores, while stimulation the generation of new collagen and elastin fibers for smoother, volumized, and more youthful looking skin. Skin texture and tone will improve with each treatment. Laser Genesis treatment is appropriate for ethnic skin, and produces desirable outcomes with little to no discomfort or downtime.
Aggressive skin rejuvenation procedures such as medium or deep chemical peels can induce higher melanin production, resulting in hyperpigmentation for people with ethnic skin. Therefore, chemical peels are usually contraindicated for Hispanics, Asians and African Americans. Vi Peel is specifically designed as a unique peel for ethnic skin. This medical grade peel uses a synergistic combination of ingredients to suppress melanin production, which makes it safe for ethnic skin.
For Caucasians, IPL, and Fraxel Laser are widely considered as the most effective non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments. However, for people with skin type 4 or higher on the Fitzpatric scale, which includes African Americans, Hispanics and Asians, IPL and Fraxel may not be suitable. These treatments can result in hypo or hyperpigmentation for individuals with ethnic skin.
Leading skin care experts recommend eMatrix as a comprehensive skin rejuvenation procedure for people with ethnic skin. The eMatrix treatment is based on radio frequency (RF) energy, and not laser. The RF energy gently penetrates into the deeper skin layers to promote collagen and elastin production for natural and sustainable skin rejuvenation from within.
The eMatrix RF pulses penetrate wider and deeper than Fraxel Laser, leading to more effective results. The eMatrix treatment will utilize the body’s self-healing power to restore facial volume and firmness while smoothing skin texture.
The procedure involves virtually no downtime. The treated areas of the skin will appear reddish on the day of the treatment, but from the next day, patient can cover the effects with makeup. Maximum results will show up in four to six weeks, but improvement will continue to establish for up to a year.
