I Have Darker Skin, What Lasers Do You Have For Me?

At Advanced Dermatology, we have several lasers and cosmetic treatments for patients with darker skin types. For example, there are often men and women who ask about laser hair removal, as they are interested in getting rid of unwanted hair but are under the impression that this cannot be done if they have a dark complexion. With our innovative technology, we can provide safe and effective hair removal treatments to patients of ALL skin types. Depending on the area of the body and coarseness of the hair, we recommend a series of about 8-10 treatments, 1-2 months apart to achieve the desired result.

Another common concern amongst our patients is acne scarring. While there are several treatment
options for scarring, one of our most frequently used devices is eMatrix™. Commonly referred to as a “laser,” it is actually a sublative radiofrequency device that uses energy instead of light to target the areas of scarring. eMatrix™ is safe to use on dark skin types, and can also be used for fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, and improving overall texture of the skin.

One of the most quickly developing trends in cosmetic dermatology lately is the use of body shaping devices. We have many treatments for the body that are safe for all skin types. We were one of the first practices to introduce CoolSculpting® to the Chicagoland area in 2010 and we have continued to see amazing results in freezing away unwanted fat. CoolTone™ is one of the newer and exciting additions to our body shaping equipment. It uses magnetic muscle stimulation to firm up and tone the muscles of the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.

The treatments mentioned above are only a few of the cosmetic treatments Advanced Dermatology
offers for all skin types. There are tissue tightening, laser tattoo removal, non surgical face lift treatments, and many more. If you are interested in addressing your cosmetic concerns, please do not hesitate to schedule a cosmetic consultation today. We can find the perfect treatment to help you achieve your goals.
