After Care for Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra

First and foremost, please ensure that you keep the treated area meticulously clean and dry for the first 48 hours post treatment.

Following your treatment you may experience:

  • Reddening, swelling and sensitivity of the skin in the area for up to 48 hours
  • The treated area and surrounding skin may feel hot for up to 48 hours.
  • Pin dot crusting in the area that has been treated or small scabs may appear.
  • The skin may itch as the healing process takes place.

However, everyone is different, so please do not be alarmed if it takes a little longer. If in doubt, please contact us on 020 8699 1998.

Following treatment, ensure that you adhere to the client aftercare advice to avoid unwanted reactions or infections:

Pin dot crusts or scabs may appear to seal the skin and prevent infection. These must not be rubbed or picked off, as to do so may result in scarring. The crusts or scabs may be indistinguishable and “felt” rather than “seen”.

Do not touch, rub or irritate the treated area. When washing and cleansing, use a gentle soap or perfume free cleanser and gently pat the area dry to avoid dislodging any crusts, scabs or the treated Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra.

  • Avoid activities for 48 hours that stimulate blood flow following this treatment e.g. exercise, hot showers, hot baths, hot spicy foods and alcohol.
  • Avoid activities for 48 hours that may irritate or dislodge any crusting, minor scabbing or the treated Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra e.g. swimming, saunas, steam rooms, facial steaming, exfoliating, enzyme exfoliation, waxing and other skincare treatments until the area has completely healed.
  • Avoid flying within 48 hours of the treated Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra.
  • Avoid UV light completely during the healing process, and as much as realistically possible, cover up with a hat or parasol. Protect the treated areas by using our Award winning Vitage SPF 30, as exposure to the treated Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra can create hyperpigmentation.
  • Avoid the possible friction on the treated areas such as wearing tight fitting glasses, squeezing spots, careless or erratic tweezing or blowing the nose too vigorously.
  • Avoid using any possible skin sensitizers or irritants such as perfumes, perfumed body lotions or deodorants.

Should you have any concerns regarding your treatment, please contact the clinic – call us on 020 8699 1998

As a follow up and to maintain good client care, we always see new clients one week after commencement of treatment for a complimentary Skin Check to confirm that the treated area is clean, dry, free from infection and that the Dermatosia Papulosa Nigra have healed. Kindly please plan this in reception with your therapist as well, your treatment plan.
