Eskata

Are You Bothered by Dark, Rough Spots on Your Face or Neck?

Have brown spots on your face become cosmetically bothersome? Are you ready to rid yourself of these spots but want a treatment with minimal downtime? If so, Eskata might be the non-surgical solution you’ve been waiting for.

Eskata is a high potency form of hydrogen peroxide that is applied topically by a healthcare professional to get rid of raised dark spots called Seborrheic Keratoses. It’s an entirely non-invasive alternative to surgery or laser treatments.

How Does Eskata Work?

Seborrheic keratoses (SKs) are harmless, and most of the time they’re painless. However, for some patients, they grow in a place where they frequently get rubbed on seatbelts, purse straps, or clothing. If SKs are raised enough to catch on jewelry or hair, they can become irritated and painful as well. Eskata is applied at the dermatologist’s office to remove unwanted SKs on the head and neck.

Treatments are typically quick, easy, and painless. Your dermatologist uses an applicator that is similar to a felt-tip marker, so application is easier for both the patient and the doctor. The 40% hydrogen peroxide solution helps break down pigmentation within the SK. Eskata has a lower risk of causing hypopigmentation (loss of pigment) than cryotherapy and is therefore ideal for patients with dark skin.

Am I a Good Candidate for Eskata?

You may benefit from Eskata if you’re bothered by brown spots on your face and neck. Whether you’re simply self-conscious about your raised spots or experiencing problematic side effects, Eskata may be able to help.

Eskata can reduce the appearance of aesthetically-displeasing SKs on the face and neck.

Remember, SKs can look like warts or pre-cancerous growths. It’s important to have your skin examined by a dermatologist before seeking treatment for these lesions so you can rest assured that these lesions are confirmed to be benign.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?*

Treatment times vary from person to person. In most cases, smaller SKs can be treated in a few minutes or less. Your dermatologist will clean the treatment area, apply Eskata until the treatment area turns white, and then you’re free to go. Most patients are able to schedule Eskata treatments during their lunch break or in between day-to-day activities.

What Results Will I See?*

It takes about three weeks for the medication to complete its work and remove the SKs. While most patients only need two treatment sessions, patients with more severe lesions may need additional treatment.

Is There Any Downtime?

You won’t need any downtime or recovery with non-invasive Eskata treatments. Get back to your normal routine immediately with minimal restrictions. Excessive sun exposure should be avoided throughout the entire treatment process. Most patients experience mild side effects as Eskata breaks down the SK. Side effects can include redness, swelling, or tenderness.
