Dr. DiAnne S. Davis is a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist specializing in noninvasive facial rejuvenation, skin of color, hair loss, and cosmetic dermatologic surgery.

Dr. Davis completed her dermatology residency at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center where she was chief resident her senior year of residency training. While in residency Dr. Davis was influential in coordinating the first Skin of Color Symposium helping to promote awareness of the unique features of skin of color from both a medical and cosmetic dermatologic viewpoint. She has authored several journal articles and textbook chapters (both for medical and cosmetic dermatology) and presented some of her work at local and regional dermatology meetings. She is also the Co-Founder of Sunblock Kids which helps to bring awareness about the importance of sun protection at an early age.

Dr. Davis is fellowship-trained in cosmetic dermatology and laser surgery. She completed an ASDS-accredited fellowship program under the directorship of Dr. Mark B.

Dr. Davis has served as the resident liaison for ASDS, a member of the curriculum task force for the AAD and has received scholarships for mentorship opportunities through the ASDS.

Dr. Davis believes in a collaborative approach when it comes to helping her patients look and feel their best. Suffering from acne herself as an adult, Dr. Davis empathizes immensely with her patients and their overall self-esteem and quality of life when it comes to looking and feeling their best. Considering the medical and aesthetic goals her patients hope to achieve, Dr. Davis creates a comprehensive treatment plan utilizing advanced technology through the viewpoint of an artist (given her background as a classically trained ballet dancer).

Ethnic Hairstyles and What They Mean for Dermatologists

Day Three: Sunday, October 2, 2022 | 1:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Although certain hair care techniques are common in the black community, with some promoting ease of everyday hair styling for black women, many of these practices have been implicated as risk factors for several types of both non-scarring and scarring alopecia. By increasing the knowledge and understanding of these practices, clinicians can better manage different forms of alopecia, patient expectations, and help to stop the progression of hair loss before it becomes permanent. This information can be used to develop individualized recommendations for safer styling alternatives and improve patient education by identifying high-risk hair styling habits.
