As you may know, most skin concerns are prevalent among all skin types and can affect absolutely anyone, but what you may not know is that a number of these conditions can be particularly severe or more common among patients of black or asian ethnicity. At Health & Aesthetic Clinic, we understand better than anyone the need to tailor each treatment to meet the individual skincare needs of our patients, especially those with darker skin tones. Our doctors possess the unique training and experience that allows us to effectively treat certain problems that are a menace for ethnic skin, such as hyperpigmentation, as well as the most advanced treatment options and technologies to offer the same level of care for all patients.
When it comes to hyperpigmentation, the most important step is to identify the type of concern you are suffering with as well as what is causing it. This is why the consultation process is so important, as a holistic approach to care is the only way to ensure the best possible outcome. When too much melanin is being produced within the skin, this can lead to certain changes in skin colour in the form of age spots and melasma, to name just a few. Luckily, we offer a number of solutions in the form of skin peels, photo rejuvenation and even prescribed skincare. As a doctor-led clinic, we are able to prescribe certain products that are specifically formulated to help remedy your skin concern and that are otherwise unavailable for patients.
Acne & Acne Scarring
Acne is another skin concern that is common among all patients, but needs a more attentive approach to treatment for those with darker skin. More often than not, severe active acne can result in long-term scarring and subsequent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This is a skin condition that is more common among teenagers and young adults, although it can occur at any point for one or a number of reasons, particularly hormone fluctuations. As always, a tailored approach to treatment is essential, and our experts can help you regain your confidence with the treatments mentioned above, as well as sublative face rejuvenation that helps to target acne scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Painless Hair Removal
The last treatment we’d like to briefly touch upon is laser hair removal. This is a widely popular aesthetic treatment that men and women alike rely upon to reduce unwanted body & facial hair. Traditional alternatives, such as shaving, waxing and plucking, require constant attention, whereas laser hair removal offers a long-term & cost-effective solution. We only use the elōs Plus laser from Syneron Candela. This laser is a painless alternative to treat all skin and hair types, as well as all areas of the body, including the legs, arms, chest, back and face.
