Seborrheic Keratosis Removal
Seborrheic keratosis are common harmless growths that appear dark and wart-like and tend to occur in areas that are sun damaged. The best method for removal is freezing which may require multiple treatments. The most common side effect is a flat brownish – pink scar which can take a long time to fade and may be more prominent in darker skin tones. Occasionally, these discolorations may be permanent. Raised lesions or lesions in areas of friction can be cauterized or cut, but these methods tend to be more painful and not optimal for mass amounts of growths. If there are lesions that are irritating or cosmetically bothersome it may be worth removing them. In general large scale removal is a process which requires patience, but is generally discouraged.
