Seborrheic Keratosis Treatment

Best Seborrheic Keratosis Dermatologist In Fort Lauderdale

What is Seborrheic Keratosis?

Seborrheic keratoses are common, benign skin growths. They may appear anywhere on the skin and are commonly tan or black in color. They may be flat or raised, or smooth to the touch.

Seborrheic Keratosis differs from other skin growths and warts with a waxy, stuck-on-skin appearance.

What Causes Seborrheic Keratosis?

Seborrheic keratosis may be the result of various factors, but genetic factors and predispositions seemingly play the most significant role. Overexposure to the sun, especially in adults over 50, may lead to additional seborrheic keratosis. Seborrheic keratosis may spread over one's own skin but is not contagious.

Seborrheic Keratosis Treatments

Most seborrheic keratosis cases are harmless and don't require treatment, but may be removed upon your physician's discretion.

Treatments for Seborrheic Keratosis may include:

  • Cryotherapy
  • Curettage: the use of a surgical instrument to scrape off of the growth
  • Chemical Peels
