Experience and Expertise Matters
Ethnic 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.
Wake Health Medical Group is one of a select few skin treatment centers in the United States with the expertise and experience to provide culturally sensitive, individualized treatment for individuals with more opulent pigmentation
