The Center for Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology in Dallas employs a dermatologist specializing in black skin. Although commonly grouped together in one category, black skin has several different characteristics than other skin types and requires a dermatologist who is knowledgeable of these.
Black skin has larger melanosomes (cells that determine skin color) and the melanosomes contain more of the pigment melanin than those found in white skin. Because of the protective effect of melanin, African-Americans are better protected against skin cancer and premature wrinkling from sun exposure. The melanin pigment in the skin protects the skin from sunlight and slows down the aging process
Post inflammatory hyper pigmentation is quite common in dark skinned individuals, even after minor trauma. An area of the skin may darken after an injury such as a cut or a scrape, or after certain skin disorders such as acne. Darkened areas of skin may take many months or years to fade, although topical (surface) bleaching agents may help. Dallas dermatologists at the Center for Skin specializing in black skin use chemical peels (using alpha and beta hydroxyl acids) and microdermabrasion to alleviate these problems.
