Asians clearly have different skin colors and textures when compared to Caucasians. Therefore, the skin needs to be treated differently. Today, there are a wide variety of treatments available, which includes laser, dermabrasion, and chemical peels. ErbiumYag laser is the gentlest laser for the Asian skin. This laser can be used to remove fine wrinkles, to certain blemishes, and scars.

Dermabrasion is essentially smoothing out irregularities on the skin by gently abrading the skin. The result will be a smoother and more even skin appearance.

Chemical peels can also be used to restore youthful skin by eliminating the topmost layer of skin, which is often damaged by weather and other external factors.

Botox

Botulinum toxin is a substance used to paralyze the muscle for cosmetic improvement.

Facial wrinkles and lines caused by the repetitive actions of the facial muscle can be temporarily paralyzed to produce a youthful look. Botox can be injected in the forehead to remove the angry appearance caused by frown lines. It is injected in the forehead, lower and lateral eyelid area, and even in the lip and lower face area to eliminate lines. Botox injected on the jaw muscle reduces the size and the width of the jaw. It can also be injected into the calf muscle to give a thinner lower leg appearance. This simple treatment must be repeated every 3 to 4 months.
