Seborrheic Keratoses

Seborrheic-Keratoses-2

Do you have seborrheic keratoses (SKs) – raised or flat age spots on your skin? If so Eskata is the noninvasive treatment you’ve been looking for!

Eskata is the first and only FDA approved topical treatment for flat or raised seborrheic keratoses (SK). SK is a noncancerous skin condition that appears as a black, brown, or tan growth, somewhat similar to a mole. These growths are very common and appear as the skin begins to age. They are commonly found on the face, hairline, chest, neck, shoulder, and back. Flat SKs have a velvety or shiny texture. Over time, they may become larger and more visible, and more spots may appear. They may also become thicker and raised and take on a waxy or rough texture. Risk factors for getting SK include age and genetic predisposition. While they are completely benign and do not require medical attention, patients may find them unpleasant and unsightly.

How It Works

It is first important to talk to your doctor about any new or concerning growths on your body. Once it is certain that your growth is SK and not something more serious, Eskata is a quick, easy, non-invasive option for treating SK growths. The process is incredibly simple. Your provider will use a small, soft-tip applicator to administer a solution, which contains prescription strength (40%) hydrogen peroxide, directly to the affected area. They will carefully remove any excess solution and let the area dry completely, and you are done.

Your provider will evaluate your result 3 weeks after the initial application of Eskata, at which time they may choose to apply another round of treatment if they do not see sufficient progress. Many patients experience partial or total clearance of their raised SKs when treated with Eskata.

FAQs

The only way to tell for sure if your raised spots are SKs is to schedule an appointment with your Golden State Dermatology Doctor. A dermatologist will be able to tell you if the spots you have are raised SKs or not.

Some risk factors include genetics and age.

SKs can show up anywhere on your body, but are most common on the face, neck, and hairline. They are  also common on the chest and back. SKs do not appear on palms, soles of feet, or mucous membranes.

No, they naturally appear as we age.

ESKATA was developed exclusively to treat raised SKs. Its proprietary solution and soft-tip, pen-like applicator are used to target and treat each raised SK.

The price of ESKATA will vary depending on how many treatments you need. You can talk to your Golden State Dermatology provider about cost at your consultation.

ESKATA is not coved by insurance.

Your healthcare provider will evaluate your results approximately 3 weeks after treatment with ESKATA. If your treated raised SKs are not clear, your healthcare provider may apply ESKATA once more, as long as the treatment area is not irritated. In clinical studies, results were evaluated at Day 106 after initial treatment.

ESKATA is likely to cause a stinging sensation at the time of application. The most common side effects include itching, stinging, crusting, swelling, redness, and scaling.

No, only a dermatologist, nurse, or other trained healthcare provider can apply ESKATA.

Clinical studies evaluated final treatment results at Day 106, but not the recurrence of SKs. Please consult with your dermatologist.
