What Is Eskata™?
Eskata™ is the first and only FDA-approved topical solution used to treat bothersome seborrheic keratoses (SKs). Men and women no longer need to undergo invasive surgical procedures or painful laser treatments to say goodbye to raised age spots. Boost your self-image and self-confidence with a simple, pain-free, in-office treatment.
How Does It Work?
Your skin care specialist will use a pen-like device to deliver prescription-strength hydrogen peroxide (40%) directly to unwanted SKs. The high concentration of hydrogen peroxide causes oxidative damage to the raised cells. Eventually, the cells shed leaving you blemish-free.
Am I A Good Candidate?
The ideal candidate for Eskata™ is a patient who has raised age spots on the face (around the hairline or temples), neck, chest, or back. Eskata™ can treat SKs that are the same color or darker than your skin tone.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Eskata™ can be done in as little as 5-10 minutes making it an ideal ‘lunchtime’ procedure.
What Results Will I See?*
The hydrogen peroxide solution begins to take effect immediately. After approximately 1-week the raised lesion will fall off leaving you with a small scar. Continued improvement will gradually occur over several weeks. You can expect smooth, clear skin within 1-month.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is no recovery needed after your Eskata™ treatment. You can go back to your daily routine immediately. Side effects are often minimal and dissipate quickly. However, you may experience itching, scaling, or redness at the treatment site following your appointment.
