The Best Beauty Treatments for Women with Darker Skin

Non-invasive beauty treatments are very popular worldwide

However, women with darker skin of varying ethnicities have a more difficult time streamlining which cosmetic procedures would work best to rejuvenate their skin and face because certain beauty and laser treatments can cause trauma for the skin. To help, we have included a list below of our 4 best beauty treatments for women with darker skin.


Micro-needling is a safe and effective option for skin tones that range from dark olive to black. Micro needling does not carry any of the risks associated with laser because it does not involve heat (as lasers do), so there are no post-inflammatory pigmentation problems for individuals with an ethnic, darker skin tone. The V2 Beauty Booster microneedling treatment with Redensity 1 is one of our top beauty picks. A micro-needling session will target skin imperfections like fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. The micro needling session punctures the facial skin hundreds of times, stimulating the body’s own healing process to create new collagen and elastin. It sounds intense, but it’s quite an easy treatment that takes only approximately 20 minutes, and the healing time is minimal. Most people have skin that is healed right over within 24 hours, and they are back to their regular life schedule immediately following treatment! Redensity I enriches the treatment by boosting and hydrating the facial skin with minerals, amino acids, and hyaluronic acid, leaving a healthy, overall glow and radiance to the skin.


Botox is the number one cosmetic treatment worldwide. Botox is mainly used in the cosmetic world to smooth the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the forehead, in between the eyebrows, and around the corners of the eyes (crow’s-feet). Botox can also be used for masseter injections to slim and contour the jawline. Botox injections are quickly administered – in about 10 minutes. The results will be visible within 4 to 6 days, and the smoothing of the lines should last 3 to 4 months. Alternative neurotoxin brands that also are excellent to use are Dysport and Xeomin. There is no differentiation between ethnicities for Botox usage as a beauty treatment. It is safe and effective for all!

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are injected for a variety of reasons, from restoring facial volume to adding contour along the cheeks and jawline, plumping lips through lip injections, or treating dark circles and dark hollows under the eyes. Injectable fillers are also a safe beauty treatment option for women with darker skin. There are no risks or complications with fillers that are specifically based on skin type or ethnicity. Any filler risks are usually very minor (such as possible bruising or swelling). Fillers are a wonderful choice for an overall beauty boost, as they also are an easy, non-invasive facial treatment with minimal downtime. Filler results can last an average of 5 to 12 months, depending on the area injected. Our Toronto cosmetic centre recommends using hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Teosyal, Juvéderm, or Restylane for best filler results.


Microdermabrasion is a great method to do a deep cleanse of the skin and reveal a brighter complexion. Our Toronto Facial Cosmetic Clinic experts recommend the SilkPeel facial. This is an advanced form of microdermabrasion that works on the surface of the skin with a diamond-tipped hand device. At the same time the face is being treated with the microdermabrasion tip, the SilkPeel facial infuses the skin with one of four nutrient-rich solutions. Clients can choose from a vitamin C infusion, a hydrating infusion, a clarifying solution (great for acne-prone skin), or a Lumixyl solution (perfect for treating age spots). Microdermabrasion is an easy treatment that can be repeated monthly to keep your complexion looking its best.

When combining any of these four treatments, women of a darker skin tone and ethnicity will find that they achieve better results without creating pigmentation risks. Our location in downtown Toronto (one of the most multicultural cities in the world) means that we have a vast ethnic client base and are very familiar with how to best treat all skin types and skin tones. All four of the beauty treatments listed above – microneedling, Botox, dermal fillers, and microdermabrasion – are offered at our Toronto location.
