Hi, I'm Dr. Seymour Weaver and I'm so glad you're here.
As a practicing dermatologist for over 37 years, I've seen a different in my darker-skinned patients versus my lighter-skinned patients.
The biggest difference is with darker skin, there's more melanin and pigment.
While melanin can help protect the skin from sun damage and skin cancers.. but the tradeoff is an overproduction of melanin. That leads to skin discoloration.
