Targeting Skin Tone Trouble
Posted on 09/08/2011 on behalf of Dr. Kenrick Spence, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Troubled by uneven skin tone? Can't find make up to cover it? Millions of Americans are troubled by uneven skin tone, making the cosmetic industry a billion dollar business. Makeup can sometimes work to cover up red, discolored, or sun-damaged skin, but in many cases it's only treating the symptoms and not the cause.
Luckily, a more permanent solution is just a phone call away. At Hillcrest Dermatology & Plastic Surgery, the VISIA™ computerized skin care analysis system is used to evaluate your individual needs for skin care in Orlando. VISIA helps your physician decide which procedures are right for correcting your skin concerns, and allows him or her to customize your treatment plan effectively. Customized skincare protocols, Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and laser treatments are now available for all skin types to treat discoloration from sun damage or uneven pigment.
It's important that your surgeon understands which tools can be used for complexion blending for each different skin type. Even though there is no cure for melasma, excellent improvement with very little down time can be achieved with the 1540 Fractional Erbium Laser and chemical peels.
Don't be burdened by unsightly skin discolorations. Help is on the way. By choosing a board certified plastic surgeon familiar with all skin types and colors, Orlando facial rejuvenation options for patients with dark skin are better than ever.
