How Can I Find a Facial Plastic Surgeon That Specialize in Scars for Dark Black Skin?

I didn't know what to do. I had a car accident, I have cuts on both cheeks. Last yr I was bit by a spider between the eyes. I was in the hospital for 4 days and they called it cellulitis. I now have a big scar between my eyes. I've now spent the last years trying to hide my face. I'm too dark for the laser. Please help I would anything to have my self confidents back.

Dark forehead scars on dark skin


Scar revision on darker skin type follows similar patterns.  An emphasis has to be placed on lightening the dark discoloration.


In my office, I begin with topical Melarase creams followed by monthly MelaPeel treatments.

You will benefit from a simple scar revision with or withou adjuvant treatments. See a plastic surgeon in your area.
