Fitzpatrick Skin Type Matrix

In 1975, Thomas B. Fitzpatrick, MD, PhD, of Harvard Medical School, developed a classification system for skin typing. This system was based on a person's complexion and responses to sun exposure. Today, this classification system is also used to aid practitioners in the care of their patients. For successful laser and light therapy, it is necessary to determine your correct skin type. Please feel free to check our other services including; Pigmentation, Hair Removal and IPL Treatment.

I have always suffered with Rosacea. That’s not the reason that I went ahead with the IPL treatment on my face, I had melasma which is a pigmentation condition that gets worse from sun exposure and made me look like I was wearing a brown blotchy mask.

The treatment reduced the brown blotchiness to almost nothing but much to my surprise and delight, a side effect of the treatment was a dramatic improvement in my Rosacea.

Apparently skin rejuvenation treatment claims to reduce your skin age by two years each treatment. In my case it has taken me back from 43 to a teenager!
