Skin of Color
The world in which we live is becoming more pigmented, and more ethnic. Unfortunately, dermatologic training specific to skin of color is lacking. Differences in hair and skin require different treatments and care techniques. Dr. Jonith Breadon, of Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery, has knowledge and experience treating skin of all types and colors. She understands the scientific significance of pigmentation, and the cultural significance of ethnicity.
Common dermatologic procedures can damage skin of color or aggravate the condition being treated. An improperly trained dermatologist can easily use the wrong product or procedure, resulting in dark spots, burning, or other skin damage. Often, they will tell you that a problem is untreatable, because they are uncomfortable or unfamiliar with treating skin of color.
With today’s advanced science and technology, we have a full range of options, including laser treatments, which are safe and effective for skin of color. However, it takes training, experience, and precision skill to choose the right procedure and perform it correctly. At Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery, you will receive quality care, respect, compassion, and understanding – every time you visit our office. One of the most discouraging experiences as a patient is seeing a health care professional who doesn’t listen, doesn’t understand, or just doesn’t “get it.”
Dr. Breadon is sensitive to ethnic issues, and understands traditional practices. For example, many long-standing cultural styling techniques can lead to hair loss. She has the knowledge and experience to treat this problem. She also offers advice and guidance for maintaining a style you love, with radiantly healthy hair.
Skin of color is inclined to scar easily, with even trivial trauma causing hyperpigmentation. For many patients, the dark spots created by skin conditions are just as upsetting as the actual condition. Dr. Breadon is passionate about providing complete, effective skin care for every patient. She treats the skin condition, as well as any marks it has left.
