People with ethnic skin often face a dilemma about whether or not to seek non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. They may be under the impression that medspa skin rejuvenation procedures are not appropriate for their skin type and tone. However, it is not true that these people cannot make good candidates for certain skin rejuvenation procedures.
An experienced skin care professional will evaluate the skin type and quality of the ethnic patient and recommend safe and proven skin rejuvenation treatments for them. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides skin rejuvenation procedures for ethnic patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
High Melanin Concentration
One of the unique characteristics of people with ethnic skin, including African Americans, Asians and Hispanics, is that their skin contains a significantly high concentration of melanocytes. The melanocytes lead to a higher generation of melanin in the skin.
If ethnic skin with a high concentration of melanin is treated with aggressive skin rejuvenation procedures, it may result in hypo or hyperpigmentation. Therefore, it is important to choose an experienced medspa treatment provider who will recommend appropriate and customized non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedures that are safe and effective for ethnic patients.
Cutera’s Laser Genesis is a non-invasive, non-ablative skin rejuvenation procedure designed to mitigate the impact of minor wrinkles and enlarged pores. The treatment stimulates the production of fresh collagen and elastin fibers for smoother, volumized, and younger looking skin. It will also enhance the skin tone and texture. Laser Genesis procedure is ideally suited for ethnic skin and creates attractive results with little to no discomfort or downtime.
For ethnic skin, aggressive skin rejuvenation treatments such as medium to deep chemical peels may not be appropriate because these can lead to higher melanin production, causing hyperpigmentation. As a result, chemical peels are often contraindicated for African Americans, Hispanics, and Asians. Vi Peel is a specially designed peel to improve the appearance of ethnic skin. This medical grade peel is created with a synergistic blend of ingredients to suppress melanin production, making it highly effective for ethnic skin.
Traditional IPL and fractionated laser treatments may cause hyperpigmentation in ethnic skin. Top skin care professionals recommend eMatrix is an ideal skin rejuvenation alternative procedure for patients with ethnic skin. eMatrix procedure uses radio frequency (RF) energy instead of laser.
The controlled and targeted RF waves will gently penetrate into the deeper skin layers to trigger the generation of collagen and elastin fibers for natural and long lasting skin rejuvenation from inside out. Compared to Fraxel laser, the eMatrix RF pulses reach deeper and wider into the treated area. The RF energy supports the body’s self-healing mechanism to restore skin volume and tightness while smoothing skin texture.
Results with eMatrix will emerge over a period of four to six weeks, and will continue to improve over the next several months. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for ethnic skin rejuvenation treatments.
