Skin Typing for Patient Education
- For doctors, scientists and clinicians, the Fitzpatrick Skin Type (FST) is the most common scale/method used to assess the categories of skin types with regards to sunburn risk and skin cancer risk (3). Understanding your own skin type in this spectrum helps refine your choices in aesthetic treatments.
- The scale uses a person’s phenotype (physical traits they exhibit) as well as how their skin reacts to sun exposure to estimate their overall skin
type. This is done to assist the clinician in determining how to best care for the patient given how others with similar skin types have fared with different treatments and medications.
- An example of this is how physicians assess which patients are suitable candidates for fractional laser treatments. Since lasers can leave areas of hyperpigmentation (darker areas of skin) in patients with darker skin types, clinicians often do not recommend lasers for these patients, or even those who are of lighter skin types who have allowed their skin to tan. The diverse Eclipse MicroPen patient profile includes every skin type, making it a breakthrough for patients susceptible to hyperpigmentation.
- While the FST scale is not perfect in its inclusion of every skin type (4) it does capture the overall population in regards to broad descriptions of skin types and the overall concerns when approaching patients with those skin types.
- Type I (scores 0–6)
Pale white; blond or red hair; blue eyes; freckles
— Always burns, never tans
Type II (scores 7–13)
White; fair; blond or red hair; blue, green, or hazel eyes
— Usually burns, tans minimally
Type III (scores 14–20)
Cream white; fair with any hair or eye color; quite common
— Sometimes mild burn, tans uniformly
Type IV (scores 21–27)
Moderate brown; typical Mediterranean skin tone
— Rarely burns, always tans well
Type V (scores 28–34)
Dark brown; Middle Eastern skin types
— Very rarely burns, tans very easily
Type VI (scores 35+)
Deeply pigmented dark brown to black
— Never burns, tans very easily
