Ethnic Skin Care

Multi-ethnic skin or skin of color (SOC) may have some advantages due to the increased amounts of melanin pigment in the skin. This pigment helps to protect the skin against the sun and prolong the aging process. However, SOC can also be prone to keloids/ abnormal scarring and dark spots/ patches as a result of rashes, acne, melasma, ingrown hairs. At Bergen Dermatology we are sensitive to the skin issues of all skin types.
