That Which We Call A Freckle Is Not A Freckle?

October 3, 2016

Earlier this year, I got my first cosmetic treatment done on my face. It was no biggie, I just got some freckles removed.

These weren’t ordinary freckles though. They were tiny, dark spots that were raised. As in, whenever I turned my face to the side, I could just about make out that they were tiny bumps. I could also feel they had a lumpy texture.

Most likely they were harmless. But still, l wanted them gone. Because why not?

Dark Spots - Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN)

My skin before the treatment. See the dark spots? They’re called Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN). Morgan Freeman has them too.

I learned that these freckles are called Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN), a harmless and common skin condition.

I then had a dermatological treatment done to remove them.

It’s been a while since I had the treatment done (seven months), but I’ve been meaning to share my experience and results on the blog.

Reader be warned: this post gets human body graphical. Like graphic and extreme closeup photos of my skin.

Read on if you’re curious.
