Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra Treatment Center

The lesions of dermatosis papulosa nigra are dark papules of usually less than 2 mm diameter, that can be diffuse on the malar, preauricular, and forehead skin.

Dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN) are superficial, benign papules that develop predominantly on the malar regions, neck, and upper trunk, most commonly in African Americans and Asians.

DPN increase in number and size over the years and do not self-resolve. Over 30 years of experience treating this condition.

Patients may view DPN as cosmetically displeasing and seek removal of the lesions. Treatment modalities include cryotherapy, snip excision, curettage, or electrodessication of each lesion.

Histologically, there are similarities with seborrheic keratosis.

First described in African-Americans, similar lesions are common in Asians and dark-skinned Caucasians.

Treatment:

Lesions respond well to electrodessication and to the Q-switched ruby or carbon dioxide lasers

Treatment must be gentle to avoid post-inflammatory hypopigmentation in ethnic skin patients

Areas of Hyperpigmention can be anything from melasma/chloasma (often attributed to pregnancy or hormonal imbalances) where brown or tan patches appear on the cheeks, upper lip and forehead after oral contraceptives and/or pregnancy,  to areas of dark spots remaining after blemishes resolve, to dark areas remaining after injury, to freckles.

The treatments of hyperpigmentation wholly depend upon your needs and skin type. Some treatments can actually cause

hypopigmentation (lack of color) in some individuals.  If products containing hydroquinone are used for too long, the areas can actually start turning darker; a condition know as ‘exogenous ochrinosis’. The treatment of hyperpigmentation can be extremely difficult and some patients simply may not respond to any form of treatment.
