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.
