Hello Dr. Lam,
I saw article on your practice in the Dallas Inform magazine. I have had moderate acne since I can remember. I was on Accutane about 5 years ago and it has since improved. I am currently just using Retin-A. I am inquiring about a few options - 1:) to improve my acne 2:) and most importantly the scaring from the acne and enlarged pores. I have researched and researched and all the information I have read is that African-Americans must be very careful when using laser treatments of any kind as it can severely discolor the skin permanently.
I am inquiring to see if you have any experience with African-Americans as it relates to improving acne using your laser treatments and the scaring as well. If so I would like to set-up a consultation to discuss. I know it is a little to give feedback via email on the best recommendation, but if you have knowledge on how you have prevented clients with darker pigmentation from discoloration during your laser treatments I would love to hear back.
