Hyperpigmentation in Asian skin?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was just wondering if anyone knew whether all asians are prone to hyperpigmentation regardless of how dark they are? I am pretty fair for an asian and I don't really burn or tan. My skin just kinda stays the same color unless im in the sun for hours. I have a consultation for Total FX soon, and I want to ask the doctor to really crank it up...but it seems all doctors are afraid to be aggressive with asian skin.

Is the risk for hyperpigmentation the same, even if you have fair asian skin? Have any of the asians here had aggressive treatments? Did you have any complications? THANKS!

I've moved this to the Red/Dark Marks Left After Acne board.

You can read up a bit on Asian skin and acne (including some information about PIH) here. There's also another tab on that page that's all about post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that also has some good information.
