This patient came in to reduce her dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN) with electrocautery, during a 30 minute treatment of the full face.

Dermatosis papulosa nigra is hereditary. If your grandparents or parents have these spots, it’s more likely that you’ll have them, too. DPN grows on the surface of the skin when there is a buildup of epidermal cells and usually starts to appear in your 20s.

Some people will refer to them as moles or warts, but they are not viral at all, nor do they cause cancer. DPN are completely benign and never cancerous. From a distance they look like freckles, but they are not flat, they actually rise above the skin surface, similar to a skin tag. Even though these spots are harmless, they could be covering something more serious, so it’s always a good idea to have a dermatologist check out any curious or worrisome changes to your skin, even if you think they’re benign.

There’s a few things you can do to slow the growth of DPN. You can use daily broad spectrum sun screens to prevent the skin from DNA changes caused by the sun. You can also use chemical exfoliants like glycolic acid to slow the rate of growth; though this will not prevent them from coming back.

We find that the best way to get rid of DPN is to burn the spots off.
We use electrocautery to gently cauterize DPN spots. The treatment is pretty painless and fast (we can use numbing cream if a patient requests it). We prefer electrocautery to laser because with darker skin tones, the laser may mistake the actual skin for DPN, which could result in burns or hyper/hypopigmentation.

If you're struggling in your relationship because of performance or libido challenges, we need to have a little chat. During your complimentary consultation with Dr. Gonzales, you will learn about the possible reasons for why you're not in the mood or why you can't stay in the mood. This isn't just geared toward men; women can have the same struggle as well. The good thing is, we have solutions to get you both back on the road to "O Town"!

How about this three month transformation check-in! When asked how she felt about the changes, she shared that she couldn't really see them just yet (because she see's herself everyday). When shown these before and after photos, she was able to see what we knew was there all along, beautiful, healthy skin! We'll share her follow up photos in another 2 months! Until then, show her some love in the comments!

We fell in love with TempSure Envi we could immediately see visible smoothing of the skin just minutes after the treatment. But the magic really gets going at the three week post-treatment mark, when the collagen and elastin bands start forming. You'll LOVE seeing smoother, tighter skin, we guarantee it!

A mistake I often see clients make is Neurotic Excoriation and Acne Excoriée...
Neurotic excoriation is a condition in which there is excessive scratching or picking of normal skin or of skin with minor surface irregularities. This often results in scarring and inflammation. The picked lesions become scarred and infected, causing itching which leads to further picking. Sometimes the picking continues long after the original acne has healed.

How can we manage Neurotic Excoriation?
-Underlying psychopathology should be addressed. Habit reversal therapy and hypnosis have been used to good effect.
-Topical corticosteroids may help to reduce inflammation.
-Medications found useful include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), doxepin, clomipramine, naltrexone and pimozide. Reports suggest that olanzapine (2.5-5 mg daily for 2-4 weeks) may also be helpful.
-Pulsed dye laser therapy may be helpful in the management of scarring.

If you see your little one picking at their skin often or during times of stress, we recommend that you address the behavior as soon as possible to prevent habitual picking as they move into adulthood.

"If you feel like there's something out there that you're supposed to be doing, if you have a passion for it, then stop wishing and just do it."
-Wanda Skyes

When I applied for this position, I was actually really happy where I was already working; I just heard a voice tell me to go for it and see what happens. Doing so led me to Dr. Gonzales and Dr. Tan-Gonzales, co-owners of Epitome Medical Aesthetics. When I tell you everything just clicked, I mean it with my whole heart. Working for them has been the career blessing I didn't know I was looking for. The treatments I get to perform, the guests I get to spend time with and the relationships I've made with the owners have filled my heart with so much joy! If you're debating doing something that makes your heart sing, take it from me, it's worth the leap! ~Kacey Baker, Master Esthetics Instructor & Permanent Makeup Artist

How did we go from persistent acne to the beautiful results you see here? It started with a consultation to get her skincare history, followed by an assessment and then a customized skincare plan. She was put on a prescription topical acne cream, Image Skincare Clear Cell product regime for home use and advanced Acne Lift facial peels with extractions. This journey took a total of 5 months.
