Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra

What is Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra?

DPN is also called Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra. These are brown or black coloured bumps scattered around the face, neck and upper torso of mostly among those who are of African origin, and sometimes Asians and Hispanic too. They are often seen on the upper and lower eyelids and most treatment centres will refuse to help if the lesions are present on the eyelids.

They generally appear or start appearing on the face and other parts after second or third decades onwards. They look unsightly and affect the psychologically of the person. This is completely a harmless condition and these bumps would never ever change into any skin cancer but they do look unattractive on the face. Interestingly, one-third of the black population alone in America is affected by Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra or DPN.Who was affected by DPN (Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra)?

The ideal candidate?

Unfortunately, DPN is more common in women than in men. If they have cosmetic concerns they can explore having its treatment locally but if you do not get very much far with this treatment then we at Renew Skin and Health Clinic will be more than happy to help you as we deal with all complex DPN (Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra) problems including those present on the eyelids as well. Here in the clinic, Dr Jha prefers to vaporise these blemishes in just one treatment under topical anaesthesia (numbing cream). 

This DPN removal procedure is generally painless and interestingly we receive clients from London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Leicester, Gloucester, Cardiff, Glasgow, etc.

Living with DPN?If you are living with DPN, you may forward close up images of your face to our doctor on business WhatsApp: +44 1926 422 454 for a quick consultation.

At Renew skin and health clinic Dr. Jha generally performs a test patch with laser vaporisation of a few DPN lesions, usually below the left ear on the neck (if some lesions are present there) and wait for 3-6 weeks before you can have the formal treatment which may take 2-3 hour time or more depending upon the severity. Please also be aware that on most occasions generally just one treatment is required.

Dr Jha was so welcoming, calming and professional. He walked me through the procedure, his extensive knowledge and experience and put me at ease about a procedure I’d been wanting to get for years. He checked in with me EVERY DAY during the healing process and offered constant support and insight. I would recommend Renew to anyone looking for the treatments they offer! A+

I have received an excellent service and treatment at the renew skin and health clinic in Leamington Spa. I had a small ugly lump on my lower lip which was diagnosed at the Clinic by Dr. Jha as a venous lake. This was treated with a special laser and within a few weeks the lump has disappeared and my lip has healed. I can highly recommend this service and treatment for complete removal of a venous lake. All the staff are very professional, full explanations on treatment and excellent follow up have been received. Thankyou Jane

Absolutely first class service. Felt at ease as soon as I walked through the door. Everyone so welcome and I was nervous at the appointment but was so at ease straight away by all staff. Im so pleased with the results but also the aftercare is amazing and the Dr is always available to answer any questions at any time and replies almost straight away. I cannot recommend this clinic enough. Thankyou for giving me so much confidence after the treatment. Thanks again

I’m currently undergoing a series of laser hair removal treatments at Skin Renew in Leamington, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the experience. The care and professionalism exhibited by the team are exceptional. Dr. Pravalika, in particular, ensures that I am comfortable throughout each procedure, providing a reassuring presence and meticulous attention to detail. I highly recommend Skin Renew for anyone considering laser hair removal.

Been going for laser hair removal for a few months now! Been through a variety of different treatments and clinics – this has been the best experience so far!! Painless and effective laser hair removal! Dr Pravalika is super attentive and knowledgeable – makes sure I know what she’s doing and what settings are used!! She checks in multiple times throughout treatment – absolutely brilliant!

Went to get a skin growth removed by laser. Very good consultation, treatment, and attention to post-op care. They proactively got in touch after the treatment to make sure I updated them about how I was doing. Brilliant. Very happy with the result, and would go again. Also, polite and friendly. They know what they’re talking about, I’d recommend.
