SKIN OF COLOR
Individuals with skin of color include Hispanics, Asians, and African-Americans. The clinical presentation and appropriate treatments for skin disease are different. At Clinic Dermatology, we meet the diagnostic and therapeutic challenges posed by skin of color. You can feel confident that your provider has the know-how to treat patients with darker skin types.
Vitiligo is characterized by loss of skin pigmentation in patches. This is caused by the lack of melanin. The discolored areas often first appear on the hands, face, and areas around body openings and the genitals. The patches get bigger with time. This condition can affect the skin on any part of the body including hair and the inside of the mouth and nose.
Folliculitis is an infection and inflammation of hair follicles. The condition may occur anywhere on the body, though is most common on hair-bearing areas. Signs include red, rashy skin. Folliculitis of the upper chest and back often looks like tiny flesh-colored bumps that resembles acne. This is a commonly mis-diagnosed and under-treated.
Hyperpigmentation or Melasma typically appears as brown or grey patches of skin on your face or body. This common skin condition often occurs due to prolonged, repetitive sun exposure or hormone changes (pregnancy). People with darker skin are more prone to developing darkened patches of skin. We offer cosmetic procedures for treatment.

Signs that you may have rosacea include: -Deep flushing, easy blushing, and sensitive, dry skin -Acne-like breakouts or bumps and pimples within the reddened areas
Acne and facial scars can have either atrophic (indents) or hypertrophic (raised) textures. Facial scarring is often caused by severe acne or deep wound trauma. Treatment to reduce the look of scarring depends on the type of scars present. Clinic Dermatology offers many different cosmetic procedures to target either atrophic or hypertropic scarring.
Acne is more than an occasional blemish or pimple. Though teens are susceptible to acne, many men and women in their 30's develop acne. Acne is a result of clogged pores. When bacteria enter the clogged pore, the outcome is inflamed, red, and swollen bumps, cysts, and nodules.
Red, itchy, and inflamed skin is usually a sign of eczema. Babies and children often develop it on their cheeks and the rest of their face, but it can occur anywhere in children and adults.
