If you have a dark skin tone, your dermatologist should have experience and training in caring for your skin. Depending on the level of pigment in your skin, skin conditions will present differently. Where a certain condition might be obvious in the lightest skin, that same condition could be missed by a practitioner who does not understand dark skin tones.
At Hollywood Dermatology in Pembroke Pines and Hollywood, Florida, patients with brown and black skin tones can receive the utmost care from an extraordinary provider, Yasmin Mathlin, APRN, a board-certified dermatology nurse practitioner. As a Provider of Color, she is accustomed to enhancing the natural beauty of your skin and treating any conditions present.
Skin Care Services Tailored to Dark Skin Tones
What separates skin tones? Melanin. It’s as simple as that. In the human body are three different types of melanin. The most common is eumelanin, a brown-black pigment.
This type is produced by skin cells called melanocytes and is held within melanosome discs. Melanin is present in the skin to help protect DNA from UV damage. Different skin tones represent nothing more than a varying distribution of eumelanin in skin cells. Nonetheless, as a person with a darker skin tone, you may be susceptible to certain dermatologic conditions, and Yasmin Mathlin understands the unique needs of your skin.
Yasmin brings a wealth of knowledge to our practice. She has been extensively trained in all areas of dermatology, including general dermatology, cosmetics, and surgery. In addition to her nursing education, Yasmin attended the Medical University of the Americas in Nevis where she received a Medical Degree. Her training and experience have afforded her direct interaction with many patients of color, which makes her a valuable resource for patients in Florida who are seeking a dermatologist who can diagnose and treat the unique conditions that affect darker skin tones.
Yasmin is not only board-certified in dermatology, she is passionate about providing the individualized, patient-centered care that you deserve. To schedule your visit with us, contact a Hollywood Dermatology location near you.
