Individuals with black and Asian skin are more likely to develop pigmentation spots than those with white skin. Treatments must therefore be tailored and performed by experienced professionals.

Black skin scars easily and should be treated gently

About 80% of those with black skin have -prone skin. Acne-prone skin is typically hyperseborrheic and cystic lesions are common. Once a lesion has healed, it can leave behind a pigmentation spot. This is known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Over time, these very noticeable spots or patches may fade, but many remain visible for years after a small cut, mild burn or deeper wound has healed. Needless to say, this particular skin type scars easily.

Although one may think that black skin is more resistant because it is thick, it is important to realize that all previous are stored in its memory. It is fair to say that this skin type is fragile and, because the skin can act like a sponge in some areas, it will burn easily if strong peelings are applied. One must therefore be very careful and use peelings that have a high pH since these are gentle on the skin. Furthermore, they will remove the horny layer without irritating the skin which is important since irritation could lead to hyperpigmentation.

Microdermabrasion is a treatment that is suitable for all skin types, including black and Asian skin. It can also be used to treat hyperpigmentation scars. Corundum crystals are projected onto the skin, delivering a deep, gentle abrasion. Microdermabrasion removes
up to 30% of the epidermis.

Photobiostimulation devices can be used to spots. Green light reduces the appearance of pigmentation spots thanks to its photo-lightening effect. The light acts directly on the melanocytes and hyperpigmentation. It helps reduce melanin production by 40 to 60%. The advantage of these treatments is that they can be used on all skin types. Blue light kills the bacteria responsible for causing acne and is therefore very effective on black skin since acne is often an issue.

Asian skin does not respond well to depigmentation products

Pigmentation spots appear on Asian skin prematurely - about fifteen years earlier than in Caucasians. Asian skin is often characterized by pigmentation spots, particularly on the cheekbones, fragile and reactive skin, particularly around the eye contour which is a highly irritable zone, and resistance to (by that we mean impossible to treat with laser treatments).

Microdermabrasion and green light treatments are perfectly suitable for Asian skin.

Asian skin is difficult to treat. It does not respond well to depigmentation products and, because of the location of the spots, there are very few treatment options since these areas are often sensitive and highly reactive. It is up to the beauty expert to guide and educate the client. It is important to show them how to manage their pigmentation by monitoring the effectiveness of treatment, assessing whether there is redness upon waking, and showing them how to use the proper amount of depigmentation cream - using without abusing!
