Triniti and Dark Skin Tones

Triniti laser facial and neck skin treatment uses a three-step process to target problems such as age spots, discoloration, scar tissue, wrinkles, jowls and undereye bagginess in three 40- to 90-minute sessions. Unlike some other treatments, dark skin tones can actually be ideal for the treatment.

Triniti Procedure

The Triniti procedure can be broken down into three steps: FotoFacial RF Color Correction, Refirme Skin Tightening and Matrix IR Fractional for Wrinkles. These three steps utilize three different tools that emit levels of radio frequency and infrared light to stimulate skin cells and collagen.

Triniti and Dark Skin Tones

While similar treatments often result in post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (permanent dark scarring) in patients with darker skin tone, the tools used during Triniti allow the doctors to adjust the amount of radio frequency, usually the culprit in producing scars or minimal effectiveness in darker skin tones. Darker pigmentation absorbs this low level of radio frequency better than lighter pigmentation, leading to optimal results in darker skin tone.

If you have dark skin and want it to be more even-toned and youthful-looking, the non-invasive Triniti is a safer solution than many alternatives.

  1. FotoFacial RF Color Correction: The cosmetic specialist will run a tool using radio frequency heat and pulsed light that targets damaged cells and encourages new cell production. This step targets any discoloration in the skin, caused by age spots, rosacea, sun damage, spider veins and uneven tone.
  2. Refirme Skin Tightening: The second step renews collagen fibers in order to tighten saggy and lined skin such as wrinkles, jowls, sunken eyes, saggy brows and wrinkles on the upper lip. The cosmetic specialist will run a tool over the skin, although this one will use a combination of radio frequency and infrared light.
  3. Matrix IR Fractional for Wrinkles: The cosmetic specialist runs another tool over the skin, one that uses fractional infrared light. This time, the tool stimulates collagen so that it contracts and encourages collagen to remodel itself, leading to tighter skin, and reduced wrinkles and scar tissue.
