Are you hiding from those raised aged spots known as seborrheic keratoses (SKs)?
Introducing – ESKATA – the first and only FDA approved topical treatment for raised SKs. ESKATA is used to effectively and safely treat aged spots by topical application over the course of one month. ESKATA contains 40% hydrogen peroxide and is a soft-tip, pen-like applicator that can be directly applied to the raised age spots. Unlike traditional methods of treatment, ESKATA is pain-free and takes only a few minutes depending on the area treated.
WHAT ARE THESE SPOTS?
During your initial consultation, we will closely examine your skin and discuss what areas need to be treated to meet your beauty goals. Your medical history will be reviewed and alternative treatments will be discussed. If the examined spots are in fact seborrheic keratoses (SKs), they are harmless! Seborrheic keratoses are non-cancerous growths. These harmless growths are typically caused by age and genetics. SKs can be flat* or raised with a color that is normal skin tone or darker. SKs can have a velvety, shiny, or wart-like texture. As you age, the spots may grow thicker or get bigger and multiply. At your consultation, we will provide you with an estimate for the treatment. You may or may not be treated within the same day depending on time and other factors.
*ESKATA is approved to treat raised SKs
