Your skin is unique to you, so what might work for your friend’s complexion may not be right for yours. The skin experts at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology of San Diego understand that, and we offer customizable solutions based on your precise needs, goals, and skin tone.  By breaking down skin types into a few basic categories, we can also identify the most common concerns and the best methods of addressing them for each patient.

Men’s skin differs from women’s skin in a few critical ways. The male complexion tends to be thicker with more collagen and elastin to support the dermal structure. While this tends to make men age more slowly, it can also pose some unique concerns in treating male skin. Men also tend to experience more sun damage, as they are less likely to wear sun protection than women. Lack of protection can lead to additional concerns like age spots and an increased risk for skin cancer.

Both sensitive and aging skin needs to be handled with a high degree of care to avoid damage while treating concerns. Sensitive skin can be prone to inflammation, while the thinning of the skin over time can also lead to easy bruising and tissue damage. We have treatments designed for these particular skin types that address issues effectively and safely.

Ethnic skin tones also require specialized care, since many laser devices can lead to serious side effects in darker skin tones if they are not used properly. Fortunately, there are laser and light treatments that are safe for darker skin tones today, and they are available at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology. We have the expertise and experience to treat concerns unique to different ethnicities so all our patients can look and feel their best.

No two complexions are exactly alike, which is why each patient requires personalized care and treatments to achieve the best results for their skin. With an extensive selection of laser and light devices and the expertise to use each of them effectively, you can rest assured your skin is in the best hands at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology.
