We understand that more richly pigmented individuals face unique skin care challenges. Additionally, we understand that each patient has unique needs and skin concerns. Our experienced providers will work with you to find safe, effective ways to achieve and maintain beautiful, healthy, clear skin.
Understanding Darker Skin
Richly pigmented skin is sensitive to many common dermatological treatments. A skin care specialist may use a specific technique such as laser therapy or chemical peeling on lighter complexioned patients with reliable, excellent results.
However, the same procedure performed in the same way could cause scarring, light spots, or dark spots on a patient with more richly pigmented skin. A well-meaning physician, without adequate understanding of skin of color, can cause more damage than the initial problem.

- Treatment across the skin of color spectrum for medical conditions such as melasma, acne, PIH, and alopecia
- Skin conditions unique to various richly pigmented segments
- Differences in darker skin responses to cosmeceuticals, fillers and neurotoxins
