Fitzpatrick Scale

What is a Fitzpatrick Scale?

An array of skin tones from lightest to darkest.

If you’ve ever tried to match foundation or concealer to your skin, you know just how tricky skin typing can be. Enter Fitzpatrick skin typing, a scientific skin type classification.

Though this form of skin typing won’t help you find your perfect shade, it can tell you just how much shade you should get on sunny days.

Developed in 1975, the system classifies skin type according to the amount of pigment in your skin and your skin’s reaction to sun exposure. This information can help predict your overall risk to certain cosmetic procedures such as our Plasma Fibroblast Treatment, as well as your risk of damage caused by sun exposure.

The darker the complexion, the higher the risk of damage or scarring from any type of laser or plasma services. Which is why most prefer to test over IV. However, I’ve found in my research there are a lot of darker complected fibroblast plasma and laser clients globally.

Therefor, I will do preventative and correction Fibroblast Plasma treatments on darker complexions, however, a spot test consult would be required to be safe.

I am here to rejuvenate and revitalize, not damage and traumatize.

If you are interested in Fibroblast plasma, please call for consult. I’ll be happy to meet and do a small reaction test.

However, we will not test if we feel there is a risk of damage. Thank you for understanding. 

Obvious risk: Keloid scars, pigmented scars, etc.
