People of color, we have such thick skin given all we’ve endured throughout history, but we actually have some of the most sensitive skin in the world. Any little thing we do to our skin can cause it to overreact and kick drive its melanin production in what we see on the surface as hyperpigmentation or “dark spots.” And then there’s the raising of the skin known as a keloid.

With so much advancement in dermatology for those of us with more melanin in our skin, there are still some things we need to be cautious about to avoid making a bad situation worse. We sat down for a quick chat with Dr. Michael E. Jones—a cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon Board Certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery—for a little briefing on what causes keloids and what we can do to treat them.

    I have keloid skin just like my mom had and I was told not to get plastic surgery (no that I don’t need it, I’m already beautiful) or the scars where they cut at won’t heal up normally.
