Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN) is a common cosmetic condition among people of color. Located primarily on the cheeks and forehead, multiple small brown papules will form that are completely symptomless, but that some individuals find unwanted. These dark bumps are usually smooth, round, and flat, ranging in size from 1-5 millimeters.
DPN tends to run in families, with females more frequently affected than males. Typically, the number and size of lesions increases with age. For some, this may not be an issue, and is simply part of the natural aging process. For others, it may be something that holds them back from being completely confident in their own skin.
Luckily for those individuals, Dr. McCullom is experienced at the removal of DPN lesions. His skill in incisionless, radio wave mole removal technique allows for most procedures to be quick, painless, and simple.
This procedure is safe and non-invasive, allowing Dr. McCullom to gently and permanently remove these benign lesions. With the use of actual radio waves, skin is removed from the delicate regions of the face and neck. This causes significantly less damage than standard electrosurgery or other techniques that require cutting or freezing.
