At Dr Anh Medispa, we have over ten years of experience in treating patients of Asian descent and are well versed in the unique skin concerns faced by Asian skin. Dr Anh leads a team of specialists in Asian Aesthetics, who are fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien and Vietnamese. We strive to offer exceptional services to our Asian clientele with enhanced communication and care.
Asian skin differs quite vastly from other skin types due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Our specialised Asian treatments aim to help patients address their unique aesthetic concerns with minimal downtime.
Asian skin ages slower.
Asian skin types have a thicker dermis, being the layer of skin that contains collagen and elastin. As such, people with Asian skin are less prone to fine lines and wrinkles.
Asian skin is more prone to acne.
People with Asian skin have more sebaceous glands than other skin types. This often results in excess oil, which can enlarge pores and increase acne breakouts.
Asian skin scars easier.
People with Asian skin have a thinner stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis that acts as a barrier to protect the underlying tissue. This leaves Asian skin more vulnerable to scarring, particularly following a breakout of acne.
Asian skin is more prone to hyperpigmentation
Asian skin has more melanin than other skin types. As such, people with Asian skin are more prone to pigmentary disorders, such as hyperpigmentation, freckles, sunspots and melasma.
Asian skin is more sensitive.
Again due to having a thinner stratum corneum, patients of Asian descent tend to have more sensitive skin. Asian skin is more susceptible to environmental factors and chemicals, such as heat, cold and harsh ingredients.
Popular Asian Skin Treatments
At Dr Anh Medispa, we offer an extensive range of aesthetic treatments that are sought-after by Asian patients around the globe, including:
Non-surgical rhinoplasty uses dermal fillers to reshape the nose, without the need for invasive surgery. This treatment is ideal for patients wanting to smooth out bumps and indentations in the nose, which can create a more symmetrical, appealing appearance. Treatments are quick and pain-free, with results lasting up to six months.
Many patients of Asian descent are concerned by their facial shape. Dermal fillers placed strategically along the jaw can give the face a slimmer look, augment a weak chin and create a stronger jaw contour. Jawline fillers provide instant results that can last for up to twelve months.
Tear Trough Filler
Tear troughs are the deep creases between the lower eyelid and upper cheek, often casting a shadow below the eyes. Dermal fillers injected into this area can make the skin look fuller and tighter and is very popular amongst Asian patients. You’ll see a difference immediately after treatment, with results lasting for as long as one to two years.
Thread lifts offer an innovative alternative to surgical facelifts. The procedure involves placing a number of threads under the skin, which are then pulled to lift the skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance. As the threads dissolve over time, new collagen is formed to create results that last for up to two years.
Thermage is a radiofrequency treatment designed to tighten, lift and contour the face and neck. As the radiofrequency energy gently heats the skin, the body’s natural healing response is triggered, leading to increased collagen and a more youthful appearance. Unlike other skin tightening treatments, Thermage requires just one session to see noticeable results that last up to 12 months.
Ultherapy is designed to restore sagging skin, drooping brows and wrinkles on the face and neck. Ultrasound energy is delivered deep into the skin, reaching the same layer addressed in a surgical facelift. This works to stimulate collagen production, providing natural results that only improve with time.
Our Nd:YAG laser treatments aim to remove old, damaged skin cells and stimulate the growth of new, healthy cells. This is ideal for treating a range of common Asian skin concerns, including acne, pigmentation and scarring. Unlike other laser systems, which can damage Asian skin tones, the Nd:YAG wavelength provides effective results for all skin types.
Infini RF combines microneedling with radiofrequency to reach into the deepest layers of the skin to revitalise your appearance. The microneedles work to create micro-injuries, while radiofrequency energy gently heats beneath the skin to stimulate collagen production. Infini can treat a number of Asian skin concerns and is particularly effective for acne and acne scarring.
A HydraFacial is a high-performance facial designed to give the skin a gorgeous glow. Treatments use a three-step process to deep-clean, exfoliate and hydrate the skin. Regular HydraFacial treatments aren’t just an effective way to treat yourself but can help treat a variety of Asian skin concerns, such as acne, pigmentation and enlarged pores.
