Asian / Ethnic Skin

Ethnic modelEvery person’s skin is uniquely beautiful and responds individually to treatment. We understand that the broader spectrum of skin tones often have singular concerns and distinctive requirements. Our experienced physicians offer a diverse range of skin care services suited to the needs and goals of our patients of color, including methods that can address areas of pigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture, volume loss, sun damage, and acne. While these conditions can affect nearly everyone, the safest, most effective treatment will vary depending on the skin’s sensitivity, depth of color, and other factors.

During your initial consultation, we will work closely with you to find the appropriate procedure for your desired outcome and distinctive skin care needs. Our state-of-the-art technology, compassionate medical team, and extensive training allow us to help you achieve firmer, smoother, and healthier-looking skin as safely and as comfortably as possible. For more information about how we can optimize treatment for ethnic skin, please follow the links below, or if you would like to schedule a consultation with our doctors, please contact us or call (604) 980-3993.

Facial Skin Conditions and Treatments

Bothered by redness, rosacea, large pores, or uneven skin tone? Our facial skin treatments can correct many common conditions in patients of color. We use laser- and light-based therapies, microdermabrasion, and medical-grade skin care products to counter these unwanted issues and to help you achieve smoother, healthier, and more beautiful skin.

Large Pores

If you feel self-conscious about visible pores on your face, our pore-minimizing treatments, including dermal roller microneedling and Laser Genesis, can help you develop a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance through concentrated cell renewal. Laser Genesis employs heat to generate collagen production deep within the dermis, and microneedling revitalizes the topmost layer of the epidermis by stimulating the growth of collagen and elastin.

Dermal Roller Microneedling

The dermal roller procedure involves an advanced microneedling tool that is rolled over the targeted area in various directions to perforate the skin. This process triggers the body to heal, which stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin. Dermal roller microneedling can improve signs of uneven skin texture concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, and scars.

Non-Surgical Nose Job

If you’re dissatisfied with the shape of your nose, our selection of non-surgical cosmetic injectables can help to enhance its appearance by smoothing bumps, improving symmetry, lifting the tip, or building up the bridge. We prioritize a natural-looking appearance that suits your cosmetic goals and facial shape for the most aesthetically pleasing effect possible.

Anti-Aging Treatments

Our anti-aging treatments include BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, Ultherapy® ultrasound skin tightening, Infini, and other methods that are designed to suit sensitive skin types and a wide range of skin tones.

Acne Treatments

Blemishes can develop in adolescence and continue occurring well into adulthood, and in many cases, these unsightly pustules can leave behind scars and undesired pigmentation. Our comprehensive selection of skin care products, laser technology, and light-based procedures can help to reduce acne breakouts, minimize the risk of scarring, and improve the health and appearance of your skin over time.

Facial Skin Lightening and Protection

Exposing unprotected skin to the sun doesn’t just deepen the color; this process can also lead to wrinkles, sun damage, and skin cancer. We offer a variety of medical-grade skin care products designed to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and to reduce overall pigmentation to help return your skin tone to a lighter, pre-sun kissed shade.
