Please pick one of those to help people know what skin color you have before you did dermabrasion. This will let people know how good dermabrasion is for people with different color skin.

Thank You! again

How will that let people know how good dermabrasion is for people with different color skin? And what if I'm beige? Forget it - this is too hard.

Here is some useful information about dermabrasion & skin type:

"In general, Caucasians with pale complexions (Fitzpatrick I, II, III) have the least pigmentary sequelae following dermabrasion. Indian Asiatic skin (Fitzpatrick V) is extremely reactive with prolonged postoperative hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation that may take many months to resolve. Counsel these patients thoroughly, since undesired pigmentary changes may offset the improvement sought. Black patients are at risk for hypertrophic scarring and keloid formation in addition to pigmentary changes, specifically hypopigmentation, and must be counseled accordingly." - from emedicine link: http://www.emedicine.com/plastic/topic514.htm

See above link for Fitzpatrick descriptions.
