Sun damage repair is one area of expertise offered by a dermatologist in Chicago for patients with skin of color
Not every skin condition is alike, not every patient is alike, and neither is every skin tone. If you are in or near the Chicago area and you require the services of a qualified dermatologist, Dr. Jonith Breadon of Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery understands and treats the needs of skin of color and every skin type. Understanding how therapies and products affect skin tones differently is crucial to a satisfying experience with dermatologic treatments.
It is important for a dermatologist to be aware of the uniqueness surrounding the diagnoses and treatments as relevant to skin of color. These concerns range from being able to detect problems because they are not readily visible to the eye, or misuse of technology in treatment that produces an unexpected result in pigmentation that is worse for the patient than the condition being treated.
Skin that is highly pigmented may be at a lower risk for skin cancer because there is a form of natural protection to some degree over lighter skin complexions. When it does occur, however, it may not be as easily detected and a delayed diagnosis can lead to less desirable results when finally treated.

Another area in which skin of color may benefit is that aging does not show itself as much because of the natural protection the skin offers to prevent signs of aging due to sun exposure. When a dark-skinned person does desire sun damage treatment, perhaps laser treatments, or fillers to restore a youthful appearance, knowing how to properly administer treatment to coordinate beautifully with skin tone, rather than just a one-size fits all approach, is imperative to success.
As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Breadon takes care to deliver many services to patients with skin of color that may have been avoided in the past. With more study in this area, we are prepared to deliver results for our patients to provide them with the youthfulness, health, and beauty they desire. We are happy to serve all ages and all ethnicities with regard to their skin care needs. Contact our office today to schedule your personal appointment.
