ESKATA®- Treatment for Seborrheic Keratoses
Meet ESKATA®: the first and only FDA-approved topical treatment for raised SKs.
A common occurrence with aging skin is unwanted raised brown spots. While these age spots are harmless, they do have a name, seborrheic keratoses or SK. Sks are non-cancerous growths. They have a velvety, shiny, or even wart-like texture and grow thicker. Over time there is a risk that SKs could get bigger and more may show up.
ASLC offers ESKATA, the first and only FDA approved topical treatment for raised SK. ESKATA is also approved to treat “risked” Sks. A dose of prescription strength hydrogen peroxide can be applied directly to the raised, problem spot. This is done with a soft-tip pen-like applicator. The benefits of ESKATA are the complete or nearly complete clearance of SK spots, giving patients a renewed confidence in their appearance. The treatment is non-invasive, while you may experience a stinging sensation during treatment, for most patients, the discomfort is very mild. There is generally no downtime associated with ESKATA treatment. Results should be seen within 3 weeks of your appointment.
Results were evaluated at Day 106 after initial treatment. Nearly all patients received 2 treatments.
