Wondering what that brown or black spot that emerged out of nowhere is? Most likely it’s Seborrheic Keratosis. This is a common skin concern that afflicts many men and women. It can appear anywhere on your body, but typically occurs on the face, neck, back, or chest. In appearance it can be raised and rough, or sometimes smooth and scaly. Often it is mistaken for being a wart, a precancerous lesion or cancer, but it’s a normal occurrence that happens due to genetics or aging. So, what can be done about these pesky spots? They do not go away on their own, but at Medical Cosmetics there is a Seborrheic Keratosis removal treatment that is safe and effective.
ESKATA is the only FDA approved treatment for raised Seborrheic Keratosis removal. It’s a painless procedure that’s grown in popularity because of its effectiveness and safety. Prior to ESKATA’s introduction, other treatment options were limited to those that often left small scars or noticeable white spots on the skin. ESKATA has no downtime, and the risks of scarring or discoloration are greatly minimized.
How Does ESKATA Work?
The ESKATA treatment for Seborrheic Keratosis removal is easy, painless, and involves neither knives nor lasers. One of our medical aestheticians uses a pen-like device to apply a solution of 40% medical grade hydrogen peroxide. It is carefully applied four times to each raised seborrheic keratoses with one minute between each application. It creates a peroxide whitening reaction on the spot, and it will fade away over the course of a few weeks. A follow-up appointment is made for three weeks later to evaluate the results. If the raised seborrheic keratoses has not faded enough, we will perform another ESKATA treatment. Most patients only need one or two treatments to get the desired results.
If you have seborrheic keratosis contact Medical Cosmetics today to get the smooth skin you want. After a thorough skin care consultation, we will determine if ESKATA is right for you.
