One question Dr. Schweiger receives a lot is: “Can all skin tones tolerate Botox, fillers. lasers and other cosmetic treatments?” The answer is yes. In fact, Juvederm is the first FDA-approved dermal filler using Hyalronic Acid that has been proven safe and effective for women of color. Botox is also a great answer for reducing wrinkles on women of color. It is completely safe for all skin types and tones.
The best way to get rid of age and sun spots for women with darker skin tones is with a Photofacial treatment using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). A total of three to four IPL treatments will effectively rid of age spots, sun spots, liver spots, wrinkles, freckles and melasma. Patients can expect what feels like a tiny pinprick and the spots will turn dark brown before flaking off about a week later. The results can be amazing, leaving skin completely clear and flawless.
