SKs are harmless spots that pop up as we age. While they may appear concerning, you shouldn’t worry if you have them. SKs are non-cancerous and generally don’t cause any pain or discomfort.
ESKATA IN DEPTH
SK spots can be flat* or raised with a color that is your normal skin tone or darker. Flat SKs have a velvety or shiny texture. Over time, they may get bigger and more may show up. They may also become thicker and raised with a waxy or rough texture. SKs can appear anywhere on your body, but are most common on the face (hairline/temples), neck, chest, and back.
*eskata is for raised SK’s
Is Eskata right for you?
If the raised spots on your face or neck are concerning you, the first step is going to your healthcare provider to see if they are SKs.
A skin condition like raised SKs doesn’t have to be “serious” to make you seek treatment. Healthcare providers can help with many non-medical skin issues that have a big impact on the way you view yourself.
Does it hurt?
Unlike other methods such as freezing or surgical removal; the Eskata procedure is painless. The most common side effects of ESKATA include: itching, stinging, crusting, swelling, redness, and scaling.
