3 Skin-Saving Treatments for Ethnic Skin
Laser treatments have become the most common, and advanced treatments when it comes to removing fine lines, acne scars, and age spots. However, many women of color are receiving unsatisfactory, and sometimes damaging results from Laser Resurfacing. A common misconception, laser treatments are not for all skin types and can remove 80% of melanin from the skin in one treatment, leaving bleached spots across the skin. To save your skin, try these four treatments that can save your skin, not hurt it.
- Chemical Peels
Light chemical peels are one of the most effective treatments for African-American skin. Chemical peels help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin discoloration, acne scars and much more. Peels come in different strengths and do not harm the melanin within the skin if the peel is not deep. Speaking to a consultant about what peel is best or you is highly recommended, as chemical peels performed to heavily can create uneven skin tone.

For skin high in melanin, retinoids not only assist with hyperpigmentation but also clear acne and reduce minor wrinkles. Specific retinol creams or serums have a form of Vitamin-A, which promotes healthy skin and enhances collagen production. Using products such as these has no effect on skin discoloration and are safe to use for all skin colors and types. Using sunscreen during the day, and a retinol product under makeup or at night creates a smoother and younger complexion.
A unique treatment, dermaplaning is the removal of facial hair and exfoliation of the skin to produce soft skin with fewer texture problems. Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (peach fuzz.) Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate the skin. Safe for all skin types, this treatment creates a smoother and brighter complexion with no downtime.
