25 Black Dermatologists Around the US | Melanin Edit

This story is part of Melanin Edit, a platform where Allure explores every aspect of melanin-rich life – from the most innovative treatments for hyperpigmentation to social and emotional realities – all while spreading faith Proud of black people.

We made a deep dive and found lack of knowledge about melasma common in dermatology in general – and now we hope to change that. As the saying goes, after knowledge will act. Blacks tend to have too much trouble finding a dermatologist who is not only professionally trained but has a deep passion for the evaluation and treatment of melanin-rich skin. Factors such as location and not knowing what to ask or find are often major barriers to getting good care.

And while medical professionals of all backgrounds can treat melasma, it has been shown that Black dermatologists are often equipped with the personal experience and cultural education needed to reduce skin pigmentation. Mitigating bias has long been prevalent in the medical field. Know how skin conditions manifest with deeper tones and be familiar with the best methods (and ingredients) to recommend for the IV-VII (light brown to black) skin phenotype associated with the territory.

That’s why we’ve put together a list of Black Council-certified dermatologists around the country – from New York City to Los Angeles (and many in between) – who specialize in on a wide range of medical dermatology issues, including hair loss, hyperpigmentation, and acne, as well as specialists in cosmetic and surgical dermatology. This is by no means an exhaustive list but will hopefully be a start. If you’re looking for even more options specific to your state, we recommend checking out blackdermdirectory.com.

It’s never too late to learn more about your skin, and we hope that directories like these will not only make finding a dermatologist easier, but will continue to empower the community. Black skin protects our skin – and loves and treasures.
