With the risk of additional hyperpigmentation, I concluded that scar treatment was essentially unavailable for people with darker skin tones. Based on how my skin heels, any kind of trauma to the skin will just cause darker spots. However, after searching on the internet, I found this video that gives me some hope and encouragement. Last year, Al Roker did a short segment on ethnic skin and the treatments available. In a nutshell, people with ethnic skin do face the issue of additional hyperpigmentation, but with the technological advances over the recent years, it is possible to receive treatment, as long as you go to doctors are knowledgable and experienced with patients with ethnic skin.

I think that's the most important thing to stress - go to doctors who are EXPERIENCED with ethnic skin.
