In South Africa people of colour make up a large group of the population which are of African and Asian descent. Patients of mixed backgrounds that have more darkly pigmented skin will also fall into this group. Darker-skinned individuals are found to be seeking aesthetic procedures more often with really good results, some of these include high-tech laser procedures that are non-invasive – special concerns are applied when addressing the treatment of dark skin.
Hyperpigmentation is one of the conditions often experienced by people of colour. Hyperpigmentation is more commonly known as having dark spots. These spots are often caused by acne, cuts or disorders such as psoriasis. Extremely sensitive cells, referred to as Melancytes, either stop producing colour (hypopigmentation) or they produce excessive colour resulting in inflammation (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation – PIH) which is commonly found in areas where acne blemishes have healed, leaving dark spots behind. Although these will fade within time – it can be quite debilitating and persistent.
