Skin Types and Dermatology
When it comes to dermatology, not all skin types should be treated alike. Each individual patient must be carefully observed by a board certified dermatologist in order to receive proper treatment and avoid unnecessary complications. When you see a dermatologist for any type of skin treatment, it is important that they consider your skin type, including its tone, texture, and complexion.
Dr. Michalak is trained and experienced in providing treatments for all skin types and ethnic backgrounds, with an expertise in Asian skin types and skin of color. This allows him to safely and carefully administer various skin treatments for his patients while avoiding complications and achieving their best results. Knowing how to treat his patients’ skin also helps Dr. Michalak to provide the most natural looking results.
For example, when Dr. Michalak performs a laser treatment, he is experienced in fine tuning the laser in order to best suit any given patient’s type of skin. This knowledge helps minimize risks that may be associated with laser skin treatments, such as scarring or changes in a patient’s pigmentation.
Chemical peels must also be carefully customized to the unique needs of a patient’s skin. The strength of the peel and number of treatments must be determined by a certified and experienced dermatologist.
When you come in for your consultation with Dr. Michalak or one of our trained physician assistants, your skin will be carefully analyzed in order to determine a safe and effective plan to treat your skin type. If there is procedure other than what you were considering that may provide you with better results, we will recommend an alternative. It is our goal to provide each one of our patients with the best, most natural looking results.
