Dermatologists specialized in dark skin in Montreal

Looking for a dermatologist specialized in dark skin in Montreal? It’s hard enough to find a dermatologist, so imagine finding one who specializes in black skin! After endless Google searches, we’ve identified a few dermatology clinics that have experience with dark skin. Needless to say, the list is really…short. 

But first, a brief tour of reality…

The importance of training dermatologists in dark skin specificities

According to many experts, one reason why skin diseases are underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed in people with black skin is the lack of diversity in the images shown in medical books. Very few illustrations depict dark or matte skin. And this is not just a Canadian reality.

Most of the time, it is assumed that the patients of future doctors will be white. However, dermatological diseases do not present in the same way in Caucasian people as they do in black people.

As a result, when dermatologists see dark skin patients, they have difficulty recognizing the condition they suffer from.

The absence of images of dark skin in books therefore has a direct impact on the care of patients of color.

It is not uncommon to meet a person with issues such as acne, eczema or  hyperpigmentation spots for years, despite many dermatology consultations.

According to an article on the consequences of the absence of images on the care of people with dark skin, dermatologists say the lack of images is one reason why many conditions, including Lyme disease, spider bites and cancers can go misdiagnosed or underdiagnosed in darker skinned patients, sometimes with serious results.

We don’t want this to happen to you. So here are the dermatologists who specialize in dark skin in Montreal. If you know of others, please let us know so that we can improve this list.

    I would like to know if there are any dermatologists specializing in darker skin tones in Ontario. Your article is accurate in that after multiple visits to dermatologists over five years I have not been given a course of action to address my skin issues which are directly related to my skin tone.
