Recognizing the Importance of Customized Skin Care
We recognize that different ethnicities have varying cosmetic concerns. Therefore, to achieve the best benefits possible for each patient, we customize our skin care protocols. This personalization makes us unique. At Hillcrest Plastic Surgery, we believe in using objective criteria in combination with our years of clinical experience to evaluate and follow the progress of our patients with different skin types. For that reason, we offer the VISIA® Complexion Analysis system, which is a computerized skin analysis system that compares you to your peers and provides detailed information about your skin's unique composition.
Regardless of their skin type, everyone desires a smooth, even complexion. Because each person's skin is unique, the products and treatments needed to achieve that goal may vary. To meet your aesthetic needs, we offer over a dozen different skin-refining technologies and personalize your skin care product regimen and treatments.
When providing cosmetic skin care for skin of color, it is important to recognize the variety of needs. For example, hydroquinone, the most popular skin-lightening cream on the market, has a risk of ochronosis (a bluish-gray discoloration of certain tissues). To avoid that risk, we have worked with compounding pharmacies to develop alternative skin care technologies for hundreds of patients who want to lighten their skin.
Customized skin care services for skin of color at Hillcrest Plastic Surgery in Orlando include:
- Chemical peels, which can provide a more even skin tone and pigmentation.
- Non-ablative laser skin resurfacing, a rejuvenating treatment which enhances your skin texture and tone, protecting the skin's surface layer while stimulating new collagen below the surface.
- Customized home acne care kits and unique at-home oil-reducing regimens for ethnic skin.
