Treating Asian Skin
Great question that I hope other patients with ethnic or sun-tanned skin will make note!Although your skin may not appear dark to your visible eye, based on your ethnicity, you have more melanin than lighter skin types. Because of this, I always caution my patients to "pre-treat" with a skin lightener such as hydroquinone or kojic acid in addition to a Retin-A for cellular turnover prior to being treated with IPL lasers or chemical peels. By far, the best treatment to seek , would be the Laser Genesis , that can safely treat darker and tanned skin types without a risk of hyperpigmentation. A TCA peel would also be a safe option if you continued to treat your skin afterwards to inhibit discolorations.
