Is laser therapy treatment, Style and Beauty Doctor asks, available for all complexions now? Dr. Joel Schlessinger provides the answer.

December 2011 issue of The Style & Beauty Doctor
In the December 2011 issue of Style and Beauty Doctor, stylist and makeup artist Danielle Gray writes an article that focuses on laser therapies to treat wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and to, overall, have younger looking skin. These therapies include:

  • red or blue light therapy
  • pulsed light
  • diode laser therapy

Side effects of this treatment can include scarring, keloids and hyperpigmentation — especially for people of color.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger explains the current landscape of laser therapy for darker complexions.

He calls laser therapy for darker skins “limited,” adding that “all-in-all, laser therapy in patients with skin of color is a dubious and potentially disastrous procedure.”
