Vancouver Skin Care Clinic Successfully Clears Pigmentation in Skin of Colour
Date:5/23/2013

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

Traditionally, laser skin therapy has been used to clear the brown patches, but on skins of colour, this can be tricky. Based on the Fitzpatrick Skin Types standard, only skin types 1-1V may be treated safely with most lasers. Darker skins, who are often prone to pigmentation and skin discoloration issues, have been left without recourse. Those who would most benefit from treatment have been unable to “clear” their skin successfully.

Hyperpigmentation occurs when there is an excess production of melanin. Melanin is the pigment responsible for our hair, eye and skin colour and is produced by melanocytes in the epidermis. With age or excessive sun exposure, melanin is no longer distributed evenly; resulting in uneven patches on the skin whereas melasma occurs at a deeper layer of the skin and can be caused by hormonal fluctuations due to pregnancy, menopause or oral contraceptives.

Beautiful Canadian Laser and Skin Care Clinic has become known as a centre of excellence for skin of colour, based on strategies developed by Dr. Shah. At Beautiful Canadian Laser and Skin Care Clinic, treatments for solar lentigines, freckles, sun spots, seborrheic keratosis, liver spots, age spots and melasma are available.

Dr. Shah has treated patients in the past who experienced skin damage at other clinics from lasers that were not intended for darker skins. Dr Shah made it his priority to offer multiple machines with a choice of wavelengths so that all patients could be treated with efficacy and safety. Dr Shah employs singular or combination strategies that are unique to the needs of the patient, including: laser treatments (with multiple choice of wavelengths, particularly important in treating darker skin tones), skin resurfacing, chemical peels, medical grade cosmeceuticals, and prescription medication. Careful consideration is given to the individual to devise a treatment plan that delivers results.
