ESKATA For Treatment of Seborrheic Keratoses
Non-cancerous skin growths, or Seborrheic Keratoses, affect over 83 million people in America of all ages, but tend to be more commonly seen in people aged 30 and up. Flat or raised, these lesions don’t always look or feel the same, with textures ranging from shiny to wart-like or velvety. Over time, they can grow thicker and more can appear across the body. A majority of these lesions go untreated, but certain spots can make those who have them feel self-conscious, or uncomfortable when they chafe against clothing. While you didn’t choose to be affected by what’s commonly known as raised age spots, you can choose to get them treated in a safe and effective manner.
At California Dermatology Care, we are proud to offer ESKATA, the first FDA-approved topical solution for the treatment of Seborrheic Keratoses. Made of a stable but highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide formulation, ESKATA is designed for in-office application by healthcare professionals. Rigorous clinical trials have shown ESKATA to be effective at clearing up Seborrheic Keratoses, providing patients with a topical alternative to traditional methods of treatment, including cryotherapy (freezing), laser treatments, curettage (cutting with specialized equipment), or electrodessication (burning with an electric current). With ESKATA, the risk of scarring is minimal compared to traditional procedures.
After a consultation to see if you’re a suitable patient for this procedure, typically just one to two ESKATA treatments are needed to completely clear a lesion, with results seen three weeks after the procedure is performed. If you would like to treat your raised Seborrheic Keratoses, get in touch with Dr. Ting and the team at California Dermatology Care today to schedule a consultation at our convenient locations in San Ramon and Hercules.
