Skin Of Color

At Dermatology Consultants, we understand the unique skin care needs of people of color. African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, and many diverse ethnic groups often require special care, treatments and sensitivity for their skin.

Darker skin has higher levels of melanin, a natural pigment that gives your skin and hair its color. Skin conditions, such as hyperpigmentation, acne, scars, keloids, melasma, vitiligo, or rashes, can present very differently due to these higher levels of melanin. Our Dermatologists, PAs and Aestheticians are experts in treating skin, hair and nails of all types effectively and safely. We also provide aesthetic and cosmetic solutions that are safe, effective and specifically tailored to your needs.

Skin of Color Facial Treatments
Darker skin has different elasticity and hydration than lighter skin. For this reason, Dermatology Consultants offers facials, chemical peels, and other treatments that are safe or specifically are formulated for darker skin.Learn More

Skin Of Color Hair Growth
Alopecia/hair loss affects all races, genders and ages. Especially common among black women, half of whom experience some form of hair loss. With appropriate diagnosis, we offer non-surgical solutions from oral & topical treatments to minimally invasive microneedling & injections.Learn More
Skin of Color 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.Learn More
Skin of Color Mole Removal
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 papulosa nigra (DPN). They are often referred to as moles, but in fact are non-cancerous lesions.Learn More
Skin of Color Acne
Acne can occur in any skin type. But due to its link to hyperpigmentation, it is of greatest concern for people with dark skin. The earlier you seek treatment, the less likely you are to suffer permanent pigmentation scars.Learn More
Skin of Color Hyper/Hypopigmentation
With hyperpigmentation, the skin either produces too much pigment or the pigment is deposited deep within the skin, resulting in dark spots. When color is lost, it's called hypopigmentation, which results in light-colored patches.Learn More
Skin of Color Skin Cancer Detection
Although dark-skinned people have a natural protection against skin cancer, that doesn't mean it can't occur. Because many people do not seek treatment early on, the melanoma death rate is highest among people with dark skin. The lifesaving answers lie in awareness and early diagnosis.Learn More
Skin of Color Eczema
Eczema affects all races, genders and ages, but occurs twice as frequently in children of color and is often misdiagnosed. If not treated early, can increase risk of pigmentation problems. Our treatments include moisturizers, steroid creams and sometimes, light therapy. It is essential to seek help as soon as possible for any red, itchy rash.
Skin of Color Body Sculpting
We provided the latest FDA approved technologies in body sculpting treatments giving you significant cosmetic improvements that tone, lift and smooth without downtime or surgery. Safe and effective for all skin tones.Learn More
