Skin Care Treatments:

Cosmecuticals skin care ranges are different form cosmetic products which are available at large department's stores and pharmacies. Most of our product selections are sold through physician offices only due to the potency of the active ingredients in the solution.

Ethnic Groups

As explained in earlier in our Ethnic Groups Skin Analysis Section, the differences between ethnic groups are minor. The significant difference between the different ethnicities is skin color. Darker skin types tend to scar more easily and are prone to hyperpigmetnation (brown spots). Therefore we do not have a special ethnic skin care range since it is not necessary to do so. Our clinicians are trained and knowledgeable about ethnic skin and have selected a group of skin care ranges that addresses the problems associated will all ethnic groups. Our clinicians will assess your skin type and skin problems and design a bespoke program that may include products from all our skin ranges.

Please refer below for more information on some popular range of skin care products that are only available through doctors.
