Indian brown skin. Uneven skin tone. No acne. Micodrmabrasion, Micronedling, Photofacial, PRP, colagen, hyluronc acid or glycolc peel, whch is better?

Leave it alone: None of these are likely to "help". Please forgive my frankness. Many folks have "poikiloderma", skin of varying colors. If you have freckles and don't want them, a sunscreen may help some. Nobody worth knowing cares whether your skin tone is "uneven". Appearance is about physical fitness and how you carry yourself and interact with others. Focus on what you can manage and you'll look fantastic. ...Read more

Do skin tightening creams reduce acne craters?

Despite Keratosis Pilaris (KP), I'm getting a tattoo. Once the tattoo heals, will exfoliation (loofah/body scrub/AmLactin lotion) harm the tattoo?

Despite Keratosis Pilaris (KP), I'm getting a tattoo. Once the tattoo heals, will exfoliation (loofah/body scrub/AmLactin lotion) harm the tattoo?

Unlikely: I'm a tattoo buff and have three of my own. Get it ONLY if it's something you've wanted for several years in exactly the form you're getting. Tattoos are in the dermis and keratosis pilaris is a curious epidermal illness. I hope that your choice of design is one that's deeply meaningful, and I admire your courage in asking. ...Read more

Is collagen skin cream (or lotion) effective? Does it really supply collagen to my skin?

Is collagen skin cream (or lotion) effective? Does it really supply collagen to my skin?

Doubtful: Such claims are not entirely valid. So be careful, do not waste money on any such/ expensive items. It is hard to get collagen to go under the skin where it belongs normally. So your best hope is to avoid collage damage in the first place, by protecting yourself(skin) from excessive sun exposure which is the major cause of collage damage and skin wrinkling. ...Read more

Is laser skin resurfacing more effective than an obagi blue peel? I had been considering an obagi blue peel.  Is laser skin resurfacing better?

.

Depends on problem: The obagi blue peel is a nice treatment for skin color and texture, but it is not the best treatment for deep wrinkles. Traditional co2 laser resurfacing is very effective treating deep wrinkles, but requires a longer healing time. Your doctor can treat some areas of your face with a peel and others with a laser, depending on your skin's needs. ...Read more

Acne scars: Dermabrasion is still the gold standard in treating acne scars. Other resurfacing techniques such as co2 laser are also excellent. Percutaneous collagen induction with a surgical roller is also a good option without the down time of the above procedures. If repeated once or twice after six months it gives very good results. ...Read more

Can i remove acne marks by applying whitening lotion?

Can i remove acne marks by applying whitening lotion?

Acne Scars: Yes. Avoid hydroquinone cremes. Cortisone helps. There are other ingredients to look for over-the-counter that help lighten hyperpigmentation. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (aka bearberry extract), and even vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to look for in over-the-counter lightening creams. ...Read more
