Dr. Ashish Bhatia of Oak Dermatology in Schaumburg, Illinois provides an overview of Eskata for the treatment of Seborrheic Keratoses (SKs).

Eskata® is the new completely painless and scarless treatment for Seborrheic Keratosis.

Think you don’t have an SK or two?

Look again.

Seborrheic keratoses are dark skin growths that appear in adulthood. Although they may be large and grow quickly, they are benign.

Initially, they appear as slightly raised, light brown spots and evolve into darker, thicker lesions with rough, warty surfaces.Some people choose to have them removed if the growths become unsightly, itch, or become irritated from rubbing against clothing. Removal methods include cryotherapy, shave biopsy, laser surgery, and curettage and cautery.

Eskata® now provides a new treatment option for SKs.
