Skin tone is not something that should hold you back when it comes to achieving younger, healthier looking skin. There are a few things to consider for darker skin tones, and many benefits to having darker pigment. Here are a few things to keep in mind when designing the perfect skin program specific to your lifestyle, target areas, and skin tone.
No matter how golden or dark your skin may be, sunscreen is your key defense against the signs of aging. Regardless of skin tone, sunscreen should be worn year round, especially on the face. Darker skin tones produce more melanin, which is what gives the skin its darker colour. The more melanin, the less visible are the signs of aging compared to lighter skin tones, including fine lines, wrinkles, and age spotting.
Despite this, any skin tone can still get sunburned, which is hazardous to your health. Sun damage also dries out and ages your skin, causing uneven skin tone with dark areas. Use a light, non-clogging daily moisturizer with SPF to easily defend against harmful rays.
These treatments are safe for all skin types.
Titan Skin Tightening:
Titan Skin Tightening is, unlike many other laser therapies, safe for use on all skin types, including dark skin. Collagen production is stimulated by near-infrared light, correcting laxity. Titan Skin Tightening is the most researched and peer-reviewed infrared tightening program.
Titan Skin Tightening is effective at, but not limited to, tightening of the jaw line, neck, tummy, and back of arms.
Hair removal brightens the appearance of your skin and removes coarse or unwanted hair. As it is done with lasers, it is important again to consider the effectiveness and safety for dark skin tones.
