Skin of Color

Hyperpigmentation, keloids, DPN’s or raised moles, Pseudofolliculitis Barbae or “razor bumps”, dry or “ashy” skin, various scalp conditions, and hair issues are all conditions that affect the population referred to as “Skin of Color”.

A wide range of ethnic and racial groups comprise skin of color including black, Hispanic or Latino, Asian, Native American, bi-racial or multi-racial individuals.

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation may occur after injury to skin of color, for example, after a rash, acne, atopic dermatitis or eczema, a burn, cut or bruise. These conditions may be very distressing for an individual.

Dr. Holder treats hyperpigmentation with conventional therapies such as creams, but her most outstanding clinical outcomes have occurred after cosmetic interventions with various chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and her Fraxel Re:store Laser.

All arrays of skin tones in the skin of color range have shown outstanding clinical outcomes with highly effective Fraxel Re:store Laser done on site by Dr. Holder at Park Slope Dermatology.

Dr. Holder has years of training and experience in treating conditions that affect this community. Her treatment outcomes have been proven successful.
