Facts about Asian Skin

Unfortunately, not all Skin Treatments are suitable for Asian skin. They are more susceptible to pigment changes and prone to irritation due to a thinner outermost layer if compared to other ethnic groups, creating certain conditions for Asian skin treatments and care.

They also show high levels of Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL), where the amount of water vapour lost is bigger than usual, while their skin sebaceous glands are usually oiler than the Caucasian skin type.

Both characteristics require more specific care such as the use of non-oily products or hyaluronic acid, for example, which you can find pretty much anywhere, but is always recommended to check with a cosmetic doctor as Asian skin is also more delicate and may require more than a ‘regular cream’.

Other facts include in general: excess on the body and facial hair, hyperpigmentation, acne, and a low amount of melanin, which all can be treated by Dr Sagoo – one of the best Cosmetic Doctors in the UK you can trust.

With all that said, it is correct to say that Asian skin is easier to scar and requires very detailed care and attention for both the patient and the Doctor. Please also bear in mind that Asian skin treatments are helpful not only for cosmetic reasons but also for practical ones.

Some of The Suitable Asian Skin Treatments We Offer

We offer a full range of cosmetic treatments that are suitable for Asian skin, but we do not recommend the use of harsh treatments such as peels and chemical products.

The recommended treatments include:

Laser Hair Removal: Focused laser lights that cause thermal damage to the hair follicles without harming the tissue, impeding the hair to grow. Treatments take from 15 minutes to an hour per session.

Hyperpigmentation and Melasma treatment: LimeLight IPL, Laser resurfacing and other types of treatment are options to help rejuvenate the skin by removing darker and brown areas. Two to six sessions are required.

Acne Treatment: We offer a nice range of acne treatments as each skin and person will need different processes and requirements. They vary from topical creams to Rejuvalight light therapy.

Skin Lesions Treatment: We offer various treatments with the latest laser and skin technology, varying from Angiofibroma and Seborrhoeic keratoses to Lipoma and Age spots treatments.

Facial Slimming: The V-Shape or face contouring is very famous among Asian women to decrease the square jawline for a softer V-shaped one. There are several steps and approaches involved, but the first choice is usually the muscle-relaxing injections.
