Abstract

Asian skin exhibits increased dermal thickness, collagen, and melanin content when compared with Caucasian skin. As a result of these features, the stigmata of aging skin in Asians is characterized more by pigmentation changes rather than fine, facial wrinkles, and it has an increased tendency toward pigmentary dyschromia after treatment. All facial skin rejuvenation techniques may not be applicable toward this selected population. This article highlights the various skin rejuvenation techniques that balance safety and efficacy and are most suitable toward treating the aging Asian face.
