Everyone is unique, but when it comes to patients of color, their skin and hair needs differ greatly from the Caucasian population. Having a provider at a dermatology office that has specialized experience in African American hair and skin is key to getting the adequate care one needs to stay healthy. At the Rendon Center, Dr. Chere Lucas Anthony is here to assist. She is a woman of color who can ensure your skin concerns are handled properly, and certain conditions tailored to one’s skin type are properly diagnosed and treated. What works for Caucasian skin will not always work the same on patients who have higher melanin pigmentation.
How do dermatologists treat African-American skin?
At the Rendon Center, we are excited to offer Boca Raton, FL area patients the benefit of our specialized knowledge and experience in African American patients. Some of the more commonly addressed issues that may need a more tailored approach for ethnic skin include:
- Exogenous ochronosis
- Keloid scars
- Seborrheic Keratosis
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
- Dermatosis papulose nigra (DPN)
Many of these conditions can impact Caucasian patients, but the treatment is not always the same. This is why it is important to have an experienced dermatological professional on your side to get you not only a proper diagnosis, but to find the best possible treatment for your unique needs. Dr. Chere Lucas Anthony and her team at the Rendon Center work directly with patients to provide them with a definitive diagnosis of their skin and hair concerns and provide the best possible treatment personalized and tailored to their ethnic skin.
