Seborrheic keratosis

Seborrheic keratosis, or SKs are harmless spots that pop up as we age. While they may appear concerning, you shouldn’t worry if you have them. SKs are non-cancerous and generally don’t cause any pain or discomfort. SKs are the most common type of bumps seen in a dermatologists offices.

SK spots can be flat or raised with a color that is your normal skin tone or darker. Flat SKs have a velvety or shiny texture. Over time, they may get bigger and more may show up. They may also become thicker and raised with a waxy or rough texture. SKs can appear anywhere on your body, but are most common on the face (hairline/temples), neck, chest, and back.

Of course if you have concerns, you should schedule an appointment with your dermatologist right away to see if your spots are SKs or something more serious.

What is Eskata?

ESKATA is the first and only FDA-approved topical treatment that can treat raised SKs.

FDA approved Eskata is a hydrogen peroxide solution used for the topical treatment of seborrheic keratoses. Eskata is applied directly to the seborrheic keratoses lesions and painlessly removes these lesions over a period of approximately 3 weeks from the date of treatment.

With its proprietary solution and soft-tip, pen-like applicator, your dermatologist can target and treat raised SKs with ESKATA.

ESKATA should not be used on open or infected SKs, or on raised SKs that are close to the rim of the eyes.
