melanin-rich skin

Melanin-rich skin is biologically unique. Regardless of how pale you feel you may look, ethnicity plays a serious role in cosmetic dermatology.  For example, people of Asian, Latin, Middle Eastern, African American, Indian, American Indian and certain European backgrounds often react quite differently to the skin or hair treatments that a blond haired Scandinavian would experience.

When it comes to treatment for acne and acne scarring, certain ethnic skin types leave behind dark spots (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation), whereas others have white spots (post-inflammatory hypopigmentation) or red marks (erythema and telangiectasia). Therefore, treatment of acne scarring requires proper intervention for all skin types based on their ethnic susceptibilities.  Treating these marks, therefore, will require careful planning and the correct choice of modalities that minimize risk to the skin such as the choice of Chemical Peels, or lasers. Even a simple treatment of milia in black skin can lead to discoloration!

Dr. Tanya Kormeili is passionate about helping people of diverse ethnic backgrounds find the right skin care for them. She is known for her expertise in managing ethnic skin of all types and conditions.
