What is a seborrheic keratosis?
Seborrheic keratosis is one of the most common noncancerous skin growths in older adults. A seborrheic keratosis usually appears as a brown, black or light tan growth on the face, chest, shoulders or back. The growth has a waxy, scaly, slightly elevated appearance. Occasionally, it appears singly, but multiple growths are more common. Seborrheic keratoses don't become cancerous, but they can look like skin cancer. Seborrheic keratoses are normally painless and require no treatment. You may decide, however, to have them removed if they become irritated by clothing or for cosmetic reasons.

How are seborrheic keratoses treated?
Removal by radiofrequency is effective, fast and painless. The treatment is done with or without anesthesia and takes several seconds to a minute for every keratosis.

How to take care of the treated area?
Keep the treated area dry for at least 12 hours.
Apply an antibiotic cream two times a day for 10 days.
Avoid touching the scab which will form as it will come off on its own.
You may resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment.
