acne in dark skin brisbane

Treating darker skin types with acne scarring is much more difficult than treating fair skin patients, however effective treatments are possible. Lasers such as erbium, fractional erbium or RadioFrequency devices are preferred compared to Fraxel or CO2 laser as the former devices carry much less risks of scarring and skin colour changes. TCA CROSS is a safe treatment, even in darker skin types.

The use of sunscreen before and after acne scar treatments is very important, especially in darker skin patients.
