In the past, when performed inadequately, specific medical esthetician treatments would have meant a higher risk of hyperpigmentation and scars for customers with darker skin tones. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, hair removal and even extractions were often cautioned to spa clients to avoid when they had melanin-rich skin.
Today, with our skincare expertise, leading technologies, and concentrated skincare products, our clients with Black, brown and Asian skin tones have many facial treatment options.
This form of microdermabrasion gently exfoliates, hydrates, and nourishes the skin with vitamin C. It also plumps and smoothes the epidermis, providing an improved texture and radiant skin tone. It can even provide some anti-ageing benefits.
Previously, microdermabrasion was risky for darker skin tones because the technology available could have left darker skin tones with some scratches, scarring or hyperpigmentation. However, this gentle exfoliating treatment that uses the power of water is an excellent option for our clients with ethnic skin.
Nd: YAG laser hair removal
We’ve all been there – pesky hairs in places we don’t want them. So it’s not uncommon to have clients come in for hair removal on the face. Now, laser hair removal is safer than ever for our spa clients with darker skin tones.
At New Age Spa, we recently started offering Nd: YAG laser hair removal treatments. This technology is very effective at eliminating hair in darker and tanned skin. In addition, it helps to boost the overall skin tone by picking up darker colour and destroying any spots of excess pigment in the skin that looks like blotches.
Additionally, the heat that is pulsed from the Nd: YAG is excellent for acne and rosacea. When applying this type of laser, porphyrin production is stimulated within the skin to kill bacteria associated with acne. And it helps with rosacea because both these skin conditions are located at the same depth of the skin. It even helps sebaceous glands temporarily shrink and for collagen production to increase.
The ND YAG laser targets the growing cells and blood supply that feeds the growing hair. The melanin in the hair absorbs enough energy that the heat also destroys the cells around it. There are multiple machines for hair removal, but this one works wonders on light brown to dark hairs.
