What Type Of Facial Treatment Is Required For Dark Skin?

What Type Of Facial Treatment Is Required For Dark Skin | Aesthetic House in Crystal River, FL

There is no universally suitable treatment for the skin. Many of today’s cosmetic treatments benefit those with fairer skin tones. However, this is not always the case for people with darker skin tones, such as brown or black. For clients with darker skin tones, hyperpigmentation is a potential side effect of cosmetic treatment that should be avoided whenever possible, and this is especially the case regarding laser treatments.  

That’s why, here in our clinic, we would like to discuss a few facial cosmetic treatments that you might desire to think about acquiring if any of the descriptions above apply to you.

Our staff will carefully evaluate your requirements and make specific recommendations tailored to meet those requirements to guarantee that you receive the appropriate treatments for your skin.

Is it it time you experience glowy and youthful skin from inside and out? Aesthetic House is the place to go if you have darker skin and are looking for the most helpful skin care treatments for your specific case. Here are some possible facial treatments that we may recommend:

1.) SkinPen Microneedling

Microneedling with the SkinPen can help reduce the appearance of large pores, acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles, giving results similar to those achieved with laser treatment while requiring very little to no downtime for recovery.

How It Works

SkinPen is responsible for causing controlled micro-injuries to the skin’s surface, stimulating the body’s natural collagen and elastin synthesis. This non-invasive procedure, which enables the release of cytokines and growth factors, kickstarts your body’s natural ability to heal, allowing you to avoid more invasive treatments.

Side Effects

Before beginning the microneedling procedure with SknPen, you need to learn more about its potential side effects and risks. Here are some of the following side effects to expect: 

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Bleeding 
  • Redness
  • Peeling 

Most of these side effects will go away after a few days. However, if any of these side effects persist, you should make an appointment with your primary care physician as soon as possible.

2.) Diamond Glow

The innovative, non-invasive 3-in-1 Diamond Glow technology simultaneously exfoliates, extracts, and infuses personalized serums into the skin to give a radiant and revitalized skin appearance. It can improve several skin conditions almost immediately and permanently. 

Diamond Glow can treat various specific skin issues, including the following:

  • fine lines
  • wrinkles
  • dull-looking skin
  • dark spots, hyperpigmentation, discoloration, and other types of sun damage

This versatile procedure also encourages the renewal of healthy skin cells, which contributes to an overall improvement in the complexion of the patient’s skin.

How It Works

To get the desired results from the treatment, your provider will need to use medical-grade serums in combination with the diamond-tip dermabrasion technique. 

After the skin has been exfoliated and the dead skin cells have been extracted, the exposed skin provides the ideal opportunity to apply serums. This allows the serums to penetrate the skin more deeply, increasing the serums’ efficacy. 

Diamond Glow simultaneously strengthens the skin while also hydrating, brightening, minimizing the appearance of pores, and reducing acne. It’s a system that exfoliates, extracts, and infuses all in one convenient package.

Side Effects

Following your Diamond Glow treatment, you can instantly resume your regular activities because it is an entirely non-invasive approach. Some patients may experience mild irritation and temporary skin redness around the treatment area, but these side effects commonly go away within a few days. Likewise, if any of these side effects persist, contact a doctor promptly. 

3.) Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a facial cosmetic procedure that does not involve any surgical incisions. Your provider will remove the topmost layers of your skin by shaving them off with a specialized instrument. Dermaplaning can help reveal skin that has not been compromised by acne scarring or other skin texture or appearance flaws. It may give the impression that your skin is younger than it actually is, but it does nothing to prevent the natural aging process.

Dermaplaning is also frequently used to remove facial hair. This is only a momentary solution, given that hair will eventually grow back.

How It Works

Your provider will use a dermatome device when exfoliating your hair and skin. This instrument is explicitly designed for dermaplaning applications. The device has some similarities to an electric razor in its appearance. A thin blade, known as the dermatome, is used to move in a back-and-forth motion across your skin. It does not cut into your skin, but rather it shaves off the top layers of skin very gently.

After that, they will likely apply a calming gel or lotion to your skin to reduce any redness, swelling, or irritation that may have occurred. It could take a few minutes to an hour and a half for the treatment to be completed. The duration of the process is proportional to the extent of the problem area that requires treatment.

Side Effects

Side effects are extremely uncommon when dermaplaning is performed appropriately. However, if it does happen, you may experience mild redness, cuts from the blade, discolored skin, and sun-sensitive skin. 

Pick The Right Provider

Picking the right provider for your treatment has everything to do with the results of these treatments. 

Think about it this way: different makeup artists have different skill sets, and although they all use the same tools, some are obviously better than others. In the same way, when it comes to facial treatments, the same thing holds true. Imagine that you find the ideal provider with a wealth of experience and a great deal of praise from satisfied customers who have used their services in the past. If that’s the case, you can almost certainly anticipate a better outcome from the treatments that were discussed earlier.


Even if you have a darker skin tone, either black or brown, you can still enjoy the benefits of facial treatments just as others do.
