KELOID TREATMENTS: When skin is injured, in some cases extra scar tissue grows, forming smooth, hard growths called keloids. People with darker skin tones are more prone to keloids. The most common locations are the earlobes, chest, back and arms. Read about our treatment offers here. And learn about our newest treatment option that completes surgical removal of keloids. SRT (Superficial Radiation Therapy) allows superior post-surgical healing and prevents keloid recurrence.
MOLE REMOVALS/BENIGN GROWTHS/SKIN TAGS/DPNs: It is common to see adults of color with multiple small hyperpigmented dots on the face that resemble raised dark brown or black freckles. These are called dermatosis papulose nigra (DPNs). They are often referred to as moles, and in fact are non-cancerous lesions. Click here for more information about our treatments.
ACNE TREATMENTS/FOLLICULITIS: Acne can occur in any skin type.
