WHAT IS SEBORRHEIC KERATOSIS?
Seborrheic Keratosis ( SEB K's) is a common non cancerous(benign) skin growth. They often appear on the back or chest, but can appear on any part of the body. Seb K's are usually brown, black, or light tan. The growth looks waxy, scaly and slightly raised, appearing like they are stuck on the skin. They are harmless, and not contagious. People tend to get more as they get older. Have your family doctor or Dermatologist assess and diagnose before starting any treatment options.
HOW IS IT TREATED?
Liquid Nitrogen (LN2)
Using LN2 to freeze off growth, thinner lesions - repeat as necessary
- Cauterization: uses electrical current to scrape off rough raised lesion
- Ablative Laser: using laser technologies to ablate lesion
- Shave Biopsy: shave off with scalpel or blade
- Chemical Peel: TCA Peel (Trichloracetic Acid)
