Skin Tightening and Asian Skin

Dr. Michele Green has had remarkable success in anti-aging and skin tightening with Thermage® treatments. If you are interested in natural-looking skin rejuvenation and want to avoid invasive surgical procedures, Dr. Green’s cosmetic treatments are entirely non-surgical, painless, with no downtime.

Thermage can improve the appearance of sagging jowls and necklines in just one single treatment session rejuvenating the skin, leaving you with firmer and younger-looking skin. Thermage utilizes radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat the collagen-rich layers of the skin, stimulating new collagen production and reducing skin laxity. The Thermage laser treatment takes approximately 90 minutes to complete and is performed in the comfort of Dr. Green’s private NYC office. The results take several months to become visible, as new collagen is stimulated in the weeks following treatment and your skin is lifted, tightened, and rejuvenated. The benefits of Thermage may last up to two years after the treatment is performed, though many patients return annually to maintain the achieved youthful results.

With the new Thermage FLX laser, Dr. Green can achieve these skin-tightening results faster and with even more impressive results than the previous generation of Thermage lasers. Thermage can be used on almost area of the body to tighten the skin, including the abdomen, thighs, knees, arms, and buttocks. Thermage has become the gold standard in skin rejuvenation for non-surgical skin tightening. Because Thermage is a “color blind” laser, it is safe to use on all skin tones, including Asian skin, without the risk of hyperpigmentation or discoloration. Thermage FLX is currently the number one skin-tightening laser in Asia.

What is the best laser treatment for Asian skin?

Various laser treatments are offered today in dermatology for anti-aging, and the “best” laser for Asian skin depends on the individual’s aesthetic goals. Skin of color, particularly Asian skin, is extremely sensitive to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), as well as hypopigmentation (white spots). Therefore, while choosing a laser for laser resurfacing, or one for laser hair removal or sun spots, it is extremely important to consult an expert, board-certified dermatologist, like Dr. Michele Green, who is experienced in treating Asian skin to avoid any of these unwanted side effects.

For brown spots, sun spots, and pigmentation, there are several lasers that Dr. Green recommends which are specifically designed for Asian skin types. Clear + Brilliant laser is a gentle, fractional, non-ablative laser that treats sun damage, skin texture, and pore size. This laser works by creating millions of microscopic treatment zones to stimulate new collagen synthesis and replace damaged skin to reveal a healthy and youthful complexion. Clear + Brilliant has absolutely no downtime and, after a series of 5 to 6 treatments, will rejuvenate your skin and return it to its previous luster.

For deeper areas of pigmented patches, brown spots, sun spots, and tattoo removal, Candela Alex TriVantage laser has a specifically designed handpiece to treat Asian skin. The laser energy shatters pigment molecules into smaller particles that are naturally eliminated by the body. Because the laser specifically targets pigment, it leaves the surrounding skin untouched. This unique laser effectively treats age spots, sun spots, and dark spots with minimal downtime and is specifically created for Asian patients.

For facial rosacea, capillaries, broken blood vessels, stretch marks, acne, acne scars, and keloids, the VBeam laser is the gold standard for treating these skin conditions. The VBeam laser is a pulsed dye laser (PDL), which is a type of non-ablative laser. This means that you will have no recovery time for this laser and it is also safe to treat Asian skin. VBeam works by delivering bursts of light energy, targeting the red pigment in blood and blood vessels and leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.

For laser hair removal, Dr. Green removes hair safely and effectively with Candela’s Gentle Yag laser. This laser hair removal laser allows the treatment of Asian skin and other patients with skin of color without any unwanted side effects of hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation. This special laser does not cause any discomfort and works efficiently to produce the best results for hair removal. After a series of treatments, this cutting-edge laser will reduce your unwanted hair and leave your skin clear, smooth, and beautiful.

Dr. Michele Green also utilizes the eMatrix™ Sublative Rejuvenation system to treat sun damage, wrinkles, and acne scars in patients who have sensitive, darker skin tones. Many patients suffer from stubborn acne scars after years of struggling with acne, and now there is an effective treatment with minimal downtime to treat these scars. eMatrix utilizes bipolar radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat below the skin’s surface (the dermal layer), which bypasses the epidermis and minimizes problems associated with resurfacing lasers, including hyperpigmentation. The RF energy activates fibroblasts to signal a wound-healing response and produce new collagen, creating a smoother, brighter, and youthful-looking complexion. Acne and acne scarring are among the most common concerns that patients consult Dr. Green for. Within three to five treatments of eMatrix, spaced one month apart, your acne scarring will be reduced, new collagen stimulated, and new healthy skin produced in its place. Dr. Green often recommends a combination of acne scar treatments to achieve the best results, including eMatrix, Restylane, and Sculptra.

Melasma and Asian Skin

Melasma is a common problem in Asian skin, patients with darker skin tones, and skin of color. Because Asian skin has more melanin or pigment, it is more sensitive to sun exposure and the effects of pigmentation. Melanin absorbs the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays and provides natural protection from the sun. However, as your skin is exposed repeatedly to the sun, the amount of melanin increases over time, and in response to this increase, the sun spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and sun damage become more visible. Dr. Green is a specialist in treating melasma and sun damage. With her specially designed system of chemical peels and her MGSKINLABS, Inc. line of products, Dr. Green will successfully treat your melasma. As an expert in Cosmelan peels, Dr. Green has outstanding results in treating facial melasma on various skin types. In order to maintain the results of melasma treatments such as Cosmelan, strict sun avoidance and regular sunscreen application are crucial.

Hyperpigmentation in Asian Skin

One common problem that arises from a lack of understanding in how to treat Asian skin is how delicate and easily it can become pigmented. Hyperpigmentation is a serious problem that can be difficult to treat, and can be caused by several contributing factors. Acne breakouts can cause residual pigmentation, a skin condition known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Also, using the wrong setting or the wrong type of laser treatment when treating Asian skin, such as with the Fraxel laser, Picosure, or IPL laser, can lead to hyperpigmentation or worsening of underlying pigmentation or melasma. When using these laser treatments, it is crucial the provider has proper knowledge regarding different skin types and which lasers are appropriate for them, since the skin can easily become discolored. It is critically important to use the proper lasers and settings, especially designed for Asian skin, to avoid this unwanted side effect, which can be very difficult to reverse. Having your cosmetic treatment with an expert in these lasers, with a firm understanding of all skin types, is essential to achieving the best cosmetic results.

This unwanted discoloration can lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), which can be very difficult to treat. The best treatment for this hyperpigmentation usually involves hydroquinones and chemical peels. Some patients who cannot tolerate hydroquinones can benefit from oral Tranexamic Acid treatment to reduce their melasma. If you suffer from this discoloration, Dr. Green will review with you the proper skin care and therapy to successfully reverse this hyperpigmentation.

Why do Asians get hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is characterized by patches or spots on the skin that are darker in color than the rest of the surrounding skin. Hyperpigmentation occurs when excess melanin or pigment is overproduced and forms deposits in the skin. Age spots, sun spots, freckles, and melasma are often referred to as pigmentation. Hyperpigmentation can occur on patients of any skin tone, but Asian skin is very susceptible due to the higher amount of melanin and the number of melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) that are naturally present in the skin. Although the presence of hyperpigmentation may be caused by a combination of contributing factors, UV exposure over time is a common trigger for the melanocytes in the skin. When the skin is exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, it stimulates melanin production by the melanocytes. Over time, the production of excess melanin will lead to the appearance of dark spots or other form of hyperpigmentation.

What helps Asian skin pigmentation?

A crucial step in preventing pigmentation on Asian skin, or any skin tone in general, is to apply sunscreen daily and wear sun-protective clothing. As discussed, hyperpigmentation occurs because the pigment-producing cells, melanocytes, are stimulated to produce melanin (pigment)when exposed to the sun’s UV rays. A broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 50 will help prevent the skin from getting discolored when exposed to the sun. Broad-spectrum indicates that the sunscreen will protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Sunscreen should be applied as the last step in a morning skincare routine and must be reapplied every 90 minutes or after getting wet or sweating. In conjunction with proper sunscreen use, wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses is highly recommended for the best sun protection.

There are various in-office treatments available to improve pigmentation and achieve an even skin tone. For melasma, a common skin condition observed in Asian skin and characterized by darker patches of skin on the forehead, chin, upper lip, and cheeks, the Cosmelan peel is a perfect solution. Cosmelan is a professional-grade mask that removes the accumulation of melanin and inhibits the formation of new pigment. After a single treatment session, combined with the right maintenance skincare products to be used at home, the appearance of melasma on the face is significantly reduced or completely diminished. Since melanocytes have “memory”, one of the most important aftercare instructions for patients that have treated their melasma is to continue their sun protection and sunscreen application practices in order to prevent the hyperpigmentation from returning.

For brown spots, sun spots, and other forms of unwanted pigmentation, Clear + Brilliant laser is a great option for treating Asian skin. Clear and Brilliant is a gentle, fractional, non-ablative laser that treats sun damage, skin texture, and pore size. This laser works by creating millions of microscopic treatment zones to stimulate new collagen synthesis and replace damaged skin to reveal a healthy and youthful complexion. For deeper areas of pigmented patches, brown spots, sun spots, and tattoo removal, Candela Alex TriVantage laser is perfect for treating Asian skin. The laser energy shatters pigment molecules into smaller particles that are naturally eliminated by the body. Because the laser specifically targets pigment, it leaves the surrounding skin untouched. This unique laser effectively treats age spots, sun spots, and dark spots with minimal downtime and is specifically created for Asian patients.

The Mesopeel is a specially formulated chemical peel that is performed in-office that can address all types of hyperpigmentation on the face and sensitive treatment areas of the body. Mesopeel treatments gently increase the rate of skin cell turnover and induce new collagen and elastin production to reveal smoother, softer, and brighter skin that is more even in tone and texture. Mesopeels are great for reducing unwanted pigmentation on the face, along with other sensitive areas of the body such as the axilla, groin, buttocks, and inner thighs. Discoloration and hyperpigmentation around the delicate eye area is best treated with a series of Mesopeel Periocular chemical peels.

When you consult with Dr. Green at her private dermatology office in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, she will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that incorporates a unique combination of the in-office procedures and specially formulated skincare products that are best-suited to addressing your specific concerns and achieving your personal aesthetic goals.

Is laser treatment suitable for Asian skin?

Laser treatments can effectively improve some common concerns on Asian skin. However, the type of laser that is used should be selected with caution by an experienced medical professional to best prevent any potential unwanted side effects, such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) or any other discoloration. Asian skin, when compared to Caucasian skin, has a greater number of melanocytes, which are the pigment-producing skin cells. When laser treatments are used to heat the skin, the skin may respond by producing more melanin for protection, which can lead to PIH. This is why it is critical to choose the best laser and settings to protect your skin from this type of hyperpigmentation.

To prevent these unwanted side effects, it is very important to consult a board-certified dermatologist with experience in treating Asian skin, like Dr. Michele Green in New York City. Lasers that incorporate a cooling mechanism, such as VBeam’s Dynamic Cooling Device, help limit heat and minimize the risk of hyperpigmentation. Radioquency lasers that bypass the melanin-rich epidermis and deliver energy directly to the dermis, such as the eMatrix laser, or Vivace laser, can be beneficial in treating Asian skin. There are also “color blind” lasers, such as the Thermage skin-tightening laser, that do not interact with melanin in the skin at all. If you are looking to improve the appearance of your skin tone, texture, and overall complexion with laser treatments, Dr. Green can help you navigate the safest and most effective lasers to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Is IPL suitable for Asian skin?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy uses concentrated wavelengths of light to rejuvenate the skin and improve skin tone and texture, broken blood vessels, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, dark spots, fine lines, and sun damage. IPL can also be used for laser hair removal. Depending on the skin concern that is being addressed, IPL uses various wavelengths of light to specifically target pigment cells, hair follicles, or blood vessels that absorb the light energy and are destroyed. Because IPL targets melanin in the skin or pigment in the hair, it is best for those with Fitzpatrick skin types I-III (fairer skin tones).

When it comes to laser hair removal, Dr. Green utilizes two different lasers to cater to skin types and minimize unwanted side effects. GentleLase laser is ideal for patients with light skin, while the GentleYAG laser is great for patients with dark skin. Fair Asian skin may respond well to IPL treatments, but patients with darker Asian skin tones should avoid IPL treatment. If there is a history of melasma, IPL treatment is best avoided, especially with Asian kin. Depending on the specific concern, whether rosacea, broken capillaries, dark spots, tattoo removal, or anti-aging, there may be other lasers and treatment options that are safe for all Asian skin. To minimize the risk of unwanted side effects, consult with a board-certified dermatologist like Dr. Green, who has over 25 years of experience in treating various skin types and tones to achieve a bright and youthful complexion.

Skincare for Asian skin & Acne

Using the correct skincare products is essential to achieving and maintaining beautiful, clear skin. Dr. Michele Green has years of experience in treating Mediterranean and Asian skin. She utilizes her MGSKINLABS products and a customized protocol of lasers and peels to achieve the most beautiful complexion possible. Dr. Green often recommends using her Vitamin C serum and the AM/PM serum duo to combat redness and pigmentation, as well as her Essential Antioxidant Infusion with retinol for anti-aging benefits. For deep hyperpigmentation, Dr. Green has compounded hydroquinone-based topical creams of various strengths to combat pigmentation and skin discoloration.

Dr. Green recommends a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 50 to protect your skin and prevent any sun damage and premature aging. When you consult with Dr. Green at her private dermatology office, located in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Manhattan, she will evaluate the condition of your skin and discuss your medical history with you. Based on your consultation, she will make her recommendations for the skincare products best suited to your skin type and skin concerns so that you can achieve and maintain healthy, clear, smooth skin that lasts.

How do you take care of Asian skin?

The process of taking care of Asian skin is similar to taking care of other skin types: it all depends on the specific skin concerns that you are looking to improve. For patients of all skin types, using sunscreen to protect the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays is the most important step. Chronic sun exposure over time leads to premature aging, as UV damages the skin at a cellular level and depletes the rate of collagen production. Applying sunscreen daily, and reapplying every 90 minutes and after getting out of the water or sweating, is the easiest and most effective way to prevent many different signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and age spots. Many patients in the past have expressed their disdain about regular sunscreen use due to the greasiness of some products or the white cast that some sunscreens leave behind after application. There are now, however, many different sunscreen formulations that are non-greasy and that do not leave a white cast on patients with darker skin tones, making it easier than ever before for everyone to find the perfect sunscreen formula for them.

Maintaining healthy and clean skin is important. Be sure to completely remove all makeup at the end of the day without scrubbing too harshly. Cleanse your skin twice a day using a cleanser that works well for your skin, and use a moisturizer to plump and hydrate the skin and maintain its natural protective barrier. Serums are great products to add to the routine to deliver beneficial ingredients at high concentrations. For example, retinol is a tried and true anti-aging ingredient with decades of research supporting its efficacy. Retinol works by stimulating skin cell turnover and collagen production to maintain elasticity, bright complexion, and even skin tone and texture, as well as prevent skin laxity. Vitamin C is another popular skin care ingredient. Vitamin C acts am an antioxidant by protecting the skin from free radical damage and oxidative stress caused by UV radiation and environmental pollution.

Various cosmetic procedures offered at Dr. Green’s private dermatology office can help maintain a youthful complexion without any significant downtime required. Thermage is the gold-standard skin-tightening laser that utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate new collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. Microneedling with PRP and microneedling with RF, like Vivace laser, can help improve skin tone, texture, pigmentation, and rejuvenate the skin. Preventative Botox, also known as Baby Botox, has become a popular anti-aging treatment for younger patients in their 20s and 30s. Botox is an injectable neuromodulator that temporarily paralyzes the injected muscle to prevent the repeated facial movement that causes deep, dynamic wrinkles. Injecting small amounts of Botox into the forehead, glabella, and eyes prevents repeated facial expressions and prolongs the formation of wrinkles and fine lines from forming. Whether you are looking for skincare advice, anti-aging treatments, or ways to prevent aging, Dr. Green is here to help.

Acne and Acne Scarring in Asian Skin

Acne is a common skin condition often associated with adolescence, although it often persists or develops into adulthood. Acne occurs when pores become clogged with sebum or oil, dirt, debris, and bacteria, leading to the development of whiteheads, blackheads, and cysts that sometimes become infected. It is extremely important to treat acne breakouts quickly and effectively in Asian patients to prevent scarring. Inflamed and irritated acne that goes left untreated can create permanent acne scars that are difficult to treat. Since darker skin tones are more prone to discoloration and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), it is vital to treat acne immediately to prevent this hyperpigmentation. Similarly, Asian skin scars easily, and preventing acne breakouts will minimize any unwanted acne scarring in the future.

Dermal Fillers and Botox in Asian Skin

While skin care, laser treatments, and chemical peels are all essential for maintaining beautiful skin, collagen loss and age-related wrinkles may need additional treatment. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are neuromodulators that temporarily paralyze the injected muscles to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, such as those in the forehead, neck, and around the eyes (crow’s feet). Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Sculptra are important for correcting volume loss, stimulating collagen, and filling in deep to moderate lines and wrinkles. Dr. Green uses a combination of these injectables in her palette of artistic rejuvenation. These different dermal fillers are designed in various thicknesses for different areas of the face to produce the most natural-looking results. For example, Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft were specifically designed to restore volume in the mid-face. Whether it be lip enhancement, cheek augmentation, jawline contouring, or tear trough correction. Dr. Green is an internationally renowned expert in Botox and dermal filler injections, and various anti-aging treatments. Her “less is more” philosophy and holistic approach to rejuvenation treatment has produced natural-looking results for over 25 years and leaves patients from all over the country feeling beautiful and confident.

Non-Surgical Jaw Reduction with Botox

Dr. Green frequently uses BOTOX® Cosmetic to treat the masseter muscle for facial slimming. Dr. Green was one of the first dermatologists in New York City to utilize Botox and other neuromodulators for non-surgical jaw reduction and to treat symptoms of TMJ. Many patients prefer the appearance of a slimmer jawline and prefer to have it reduced for a more contoured “V” shape. Through only a single injection into the masseter muscle, Dr. Green has honed her skills to easily transform the jawline with no discomfort or downtime.

Microneedling, a treatment also known as collagen induction therapy, is a unique anti-aging procedure that is designed to help treat fine lines, skin texture, skin tone, acne scarring, melasma, and hyperpigmentation. During a microneedling treatment, a handheld device that contains gold-insulated needles is used to create microscopic injuries in the epidermis of the skin. This stimulates the natural wound healing process of the skin, creating new collagen and elastin. A microneedling treatment can be enhanced with the addition of Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP. Platelet-Rich Plasma is replete with growth factors, which stimulate the skin to produce new elastin and collagen. By using microneedling to create microscopic damage to the skin, these growth factors can penetrate deep into the skin and augment the results of your facial rejuvenation.

Microneedling with RF: Vivace Laser

Vivace Microneedling is an innovative cosmetic procedure that combines microneedling treatment with radiofrequency technology to optimize skin rejuvenation results. The dual radiofrequency (RF) and microneedling capabilities of Vivace allow for an increased amount of collagen and elastin production in the skin, resulting in an improvement in the health and appearance of both the skin texture and skin tone. The microneedles create micro-injuries in the epidermal layers of the skin, while the radiofrequency energy heats the dermal layers. Both mechanisms of treatment work to stimulate collagen and elastin production, which provide the skin with enhanced structural support and elasticity and naturally deplete over time.

This treatment method is safe and effective for patients of all skin types and skin tones, offering an overall comfortable patient experience and essentially zero downtime. Vivace Microneedling is an excellent treatment option for skin-tightening, as well as for reducing the appearance of an uneven skin tone, stretch marks, acne scars, fine lines, enlarged pores, dark spots, and sun damage, among other skin concerns. Typically, it is recommended to have an initial series of three Vivace treatment sessions, each spaced approximately one month apart, for ideal cosmetic results. Most patients engage in regular maintenance treatment sessions to achieve the best results. When you consult with Dr. Green for your Vivace Microneedling treatments, she will work with you to determine a treatment plan and timeline that is best suited to your unique needs and goals.

Body Treatments

There are many body treatments for skin tightening, stretch marks, cellulite, and fat freezing, like Velashape, Coolsculpting, and Thermage, which are safe for Asian skin and yield fantastic results. Dr. Green has all of the latest state-of-the-art lasers and body contouring devices to give you the ultimate cosmetic results. Dr. Green’s expertise in non-surgical body contouring can help you achieve your desired “swimsuit body” without the need for plastic surgery.

Does Asian skin age slower?

There is no scientific evidence that shows that Asian skin ages slower than other skin tones. Anecdotally, however, many people can agree that a lot of older Asian women appear younger than they are. There are a few theories as to why this is the case. First, Asian skin naturally has more melanin, which is a pigment in the skin that helps protect the skin from sun damage. Because UV radiation is one of the main causes of premature aging, the presence of more melanin can slow down the aging process. Secondly, Asian beauty standards, specifically East Asian, tend to favor a light and bright complexion. Because of this, many East Asians incorporate regular sunscreen use into their skin routines and wear sun-protective clothing very early on, preventing sun damage and premature aging. Lastly, genetics plays a big role in the aging process, and overall body health can contribute to aging. Having a well-balanced diet with whole foods and avoiding smoking and excessive drinking can prevent premature aging.

Can Asians get skin cancer?

Yes. Asian patients can develop skin cancer, including malignant melanoma. Since trends for tanning have increased in the last three decades, so too has the incidence of sun-induced skin cancers, such as Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma. More women than men seem to be predisposed to these skin cancers, with 70 years old being the average age for developing these types of skin cancers in Asian women. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology in 2020, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are diagnosed less frequently with skin cancer than White Americans but have a higher mortality rate once diagnosed. While Asian skin has an increased amount of melanin, it would be unwise to believe that melanin alone would protect patients from skin cancer. Because the risk of skin cancer is less commonly considered in Asian patients, Asian patients may develop skin cancers which are diagnosed at a much later stage. This can leads to a delay in diagnosis and can result in a poorer prognosis. For these reasons, Dr. Green urges all of her patients in her NYC Upper East Side office to have a complete skin examination during their consultation.
