What are Seborrheic Keratoses (SKs)?
Seborrheic keratoses are non-cancerous growths that can be flat or raised with a color that is normal skin tone or darker. They often appear on the back or chest but can occur on any part of the body. Seborrheic keratoses grow slowly, in groups or singly. Most people will develop at least one seborrheic keratosis during their lifetime. Risk factors for SKs include age and genetics.
What is ESKATA?
ESKATA is the first FDA-approved topical treatment for raised seborrheic keratoss (SKs). ESKATA is a proprietary solution based on a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide.
What to Expect at Renovus Medical Spa
ESKATA is applied with the soft-tip, pen-like applicator. The dermatologist will apply ESKATA to SKs 4 times, approximately 1 minute apart. The most common side effects include itching, stinging, crusting, swelling, redness, and scaling.
The dermatologist will evaluate the patient’s results approximately 3 weeks after treatment. If the treated lesion has not completely cleared approximately 3 weeks after treatment, another treatment may be administered following the same procedure.
