Dermatosis Papulosis Nigra – DPNS
What is Dermatosis papulosa nigra?
Known as DPN’s, Dermatosis papulosa nigra are tiny “wart-like” growths on the face, neck, chest or back of patients, usually those with ethnic skin. Though they are safe and never associated with skin cancers, they can become a cosmetic concern to some.
It is important to destroy these lesions gingerly to avoid discoloration of the skin in the treatment areas. Ethnic skin is very susceptible to pigmentary changes after any skin procedure, so it is important that your healthcare provider has experience treating pigmented skin.
Dr. Kormeili works frequently with ethnic skin and will perform a careful clinical evaluation of your needs so you receive the right treatment for you. To discuss your skin’s needs, contact us anytime.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
