Traditional treatments for seborrheic keratoses typically involve laser treatments, electric therapy, scraping, or freezing. However, at Snyder Dermatology we offer ESKATA as an innovative treatment approach to noninvasively treat seborrheic keratoses. It is the first and only FDA-approved topical solution consisting of a high-concentration hydrogen peroxide that can be applied to raised seborrheic keratoses for treatment. Administered as an in-office treatment, ESKATA has been proven as a safe, effective, and quick treatment option that requires no downtime afterward. To learn more about ESKATA, contact our Austin, TX facility today to schedule your consultation.
"As usual, Dr. Aranda goes above and beyond in providing a personable care that is difficult to find. She takes the time to discuss various treatment options, discusses the pros and cons of each and genuinely values your input to collectively determine the best outcome. I feel so strongly about Dr. Aranda, Dr. Snyder and their professional staff that I still went to them last year when they were out of network. Thank you Dr. Aranda, you're just great!"- B.J. / Google / Mar 25, 2017

An ideal candidate for an ESKATA treatment could be any individual experiencing raised seborrheic keratoses. Classified as a harmless, noncancerous skin growth, seborrheic keratoses can be common in middle-aged adults. Similar in appearance to a wart or mole, these growths can develop on any area of the body. Prior to receiving treatment, patients will need to be evaluated to diagnose seborrheic keratoses and rule out any other conditions.
The ESKATA 40% hydrogen peroxide solution is stored in a pen-like application device. This allows for direct application to the treatment area. One of our board-certified dermatologists will administer the solution using the applicator to the area of seborrheic keratoses. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete. Following the application, the patient will receive appropriate aftercare instructions to help make treatment as effective as possible.
What to Expect
Following an ESKATA treatment, patients may experience some slight swelling, stinging, itching, redness, or scaling at the application site. Patients can go back to their normal daily activities but may be required to stay out of the sun or abstain from excessive exercise or sweating. The skin typically takes about 1 – 2 weeks to heal completely. In some instances, a series of treatments may be needed to receive optimal results. At a follow-up appointment, patients can be assessed, and treatment plan adjustments can be made as necessary.
