Would you recommend skin bleaching treatments for African American women? I have some acne scarring and I’ve been using skin bleaching creams with no avail.
We have lots of patients with darker skin from middle eastern patients to latino patients to African Americans. Skin lightening can safely be done in all of these patients but it has to be a part of a complete skin care regimen if acne scar marks are to be reduced. That includes, Hydroquinone, Retin-A and Microdermabrasion as well as light peels. The key is finding a great skin specialist as I have seen even Dermatologists make “rookie mistakes” and end up making things worse rather than better. Slow and steady is the best approach with African American skin.
