Asian skin has different tones and textures compared to non-Asian skin and require different care, Natural tones vary from lighter in the north to much darker in the south. Young Asian skin tends to be relatively thick and smooth with a slight yellow undertone. It is prone to acne and hormonal change and showed more noticealble reaction to even simple cuts. Asian skin is slower to show aging changes and wrinkling, is less likely to burn or develop skin cancer, and generally looks at least ten years younger than non-Asian or Caucasian skin. The appearance and darkening of brown age spots can be lessened by limiting exposure to the sun ultraviolet rays.
Good general skin care advice incorporated common sense measures:
- Eat a healthy diet emphasizing fresh fruits and vegetables.
- Drink plenty of water to ensure good skin hydration.
- Use as water-based moisturized.
- Apply daily sun protection that shield against both UV-A and UV-B
- Occasionally exfoliate away dead surface cells with facial scrubs or mild spa-level treatments, and
- Avoid smoking, the “kiss-of-death” to preserving skin
Once damage from sun, trauma, or aging has appeared, it’s too late for prevention, and medical treatments ranging from the non-invasive to the ablative may be indicated. Due to the structure of Asian skin, such care is oftern different than that used in the non-Asian patient.

Multi directional injection technique is applied so uniform and very natural improvement can be obtained. These fillers are somewhat different and for the check depression Radiesse is chosen and injected just over the bone so palpability can be avoided. Artefill can give the long lasting result (up to 5 years) compare to other fillers and rest of the filler usually last between 6 months to one year.

Sculptra® is injectable Poly-L- Lactic acid. It replaces the lost fat and collagen. No skin test is required and the result is not immediate and it improves gradually and the result will last up to two to two and half years. It requires three to four injection and this can be injected every three weeks apart. Because all improvement is due to patient’s own collagen the result is so natural and subtle. It is widely used such as cheek, around mouth and temple depression area.
Juvederm Voluma™ is a new, FDA-approved dermal filler formulated specifically to add volume to the face around the cheeks and chin. This is the only injectable gel created to provide a subtle, natural enhancement to the mid-face, addressing changes in definition that occur over time. Juvederm Voluma can help restore more youthful contours by plumping up the area that so often loses volume as part of the aging process. It can also return a firmer shape to the jaw line when some softening has set in.
Juvederm Voluma is not only an effective treatment method, but it is long lasting as well. In many patients, the results will last for a period of up to 18 months.
The active ingredient in Juvederm Voluma is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance naturally produced within the skin. As we get older, the levels of HA present in the skin begin to decline, resulting in a loss of volume and sunken or sagging cheeks. Juvederm Voluma integrates into the existing collagen and elastin in the skin tissue to offer greater support and elasticity. This can provide a noticeable smoothing and firming to the skin and lend the facial structure more substantial definition.
Juvederm Voluma is the latest in the Juvederm line of dermal fillers. These various formulas have a successful history of reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds in the skin and rejuvenating the face.
