Dear Dr. Karen:
I have black color on my nose and now-days seen thick.I feel it is pigmentation.I consulted a cosmotologist and she suggested me peel or laser treatment.I am totally not aware of what to do. Can you please suggest me how to get rid of my problem

Sincerely, tulasi

Dear Tulasi
There are many causes of excess pigmentation. Your treatment options would depend on a correct diagnosis, and your skin type. Laser treatment and chemical peels may resolve some types of pigmentation, but are not typically suitable for someone with dark skin color.

I would suggest you see your family physician as a first step and you may need a referral to see a dermatologist.

Dr. Karen
