The Mass General Dermatology Multi-Ethnic Skin Program is comprised of specialty clinics that address the unique needs of patients with pigmentary disorders and darker skin tones. Tsao, MD to provide specialized and culturally sensitive care in the diagnosis and treatment of skin, hair and nail conditions that are common, rare, or of concern to individuals with darker skin tones.
Skin color is determined by a pigment melanin made by specialized cells in the skin melanocytes. However, that does not mean that everyone in the same ethnic group has the same skin type. Darker skin tends to show more discoloration after injury and be prone to the development of keloid scarring. Touch-ups should only be done every two to three months and only to newly grown hair. Never apply relaxer to hair that has already been relaxed. Use ceramic combs or irons to press hair: If you would like to press or thermally straighten your hair, use a ceramic comb or iron and only do so once a week.
Use a straightening device with a dial to ensure the device is not too hot.
