Dr. Thrower and his staff know that the highest quality care is only possible when ethnic skin is treated with the special attention and therapeutic expertise it deserves. Ethnic Skin requires special treatment because its reaction and response is very different from that of European skin. The most obvious difference is pigmentation, or color. The pigment producing cells in darker skin are much more active. This produces an even dispersal of pigment cells in the skin’s top layer. While this gives darker people a much greater level of protection against the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays, it can also lead to problems. Diseases and injuries can cause the production of more or less pigment, leading to very visible dark or white spots, or discolored areas.
