This article focuses on the aesthetic cutaneous considerations in analyzing and treating the aging face in patients of color. Initially some of the physiologic differences between dark and light pigmented skin are elucidated. Hair conditions that lead to aesthetic unacceptance are discussed as are facial enhancing cosmetic procedures, with special emphasis on people of color. Information on treatment of dandruff, xanthelasma, and melasma in people with dark skin is also presented.
