Skin of Color

Ethnic Skin Treatments in Manhattan

Ethnic skin is darker because the melanocyte cells that produce pigment are larger, and produce melanin more efficiently and quickly. Anything that irritates or inflames the skin such as a scratch, acne, or a chronic rash can stimulate melanocytes to produce melanin and cause hyperpigmentation (dark patches on the skin).

Skin of color may react differently to cosmetic and medical treatments than Caucasian skin, therefore, it is important to know that your dermatologist is skilled at treating all skin types.

At Radiant Skin Dermatology and Laser, we are committed to providing safe and effective treatments to all our patients, that’s why we feature the latest innovations in general and cosmetic dermatology to help all our patients achieve truly radiant skin regardless of their complexion. We feature “color-blind” lasers that are safe in treating skin conditions such as razor bumps, acne scarring, stretch marks, melasma, and spider vein.

Here is a list of some skin treatments that we provide for our patients of color:
