What is seborrheic keratosis?

A seborrheic keratosis is a type of skin growth. They can be unsightly, but the growths aren’t harmful.

However, in some cases a seborrheic keratosis can be difficult to distinguish from melanoma, a very serious type of skin cancer.

If your skin changes unexpectedly, you should always have it looked at by a doctor.

What does seborrheic keratosis look like?

A seborrheic keratosis is usually easily identified by appearance.

Multiple lesions may appear, although at the beginning there may be just one. Growths can be found on many areas of the body, including the:

  • chest
  • scalp
  • shoulders
  • back
  • abdomen
  • face

Growths can be found anywhere on the body except on the soles of the feet or the palms.

Growths often start out as small, rough areas. Over time, they tend to develop a thick, wart-like surface. They’re often described as having a “stuck-on” appearance. They may also look waxy and have slightly raised surfaces.

Plasma fibroblast therapy is a nonsurgical treatment that may be also used to treat the following conditions:

  • acne scars
  • photo ageing, including age spots
  • seborrheic keratosis
  • wrinkled skin, including the eyelids, neck, jawline, and above the lips

Does it work?

When plasma fibroblast therapy is performed in a safe, controlled environment, it can:

  • improve skin texture
  • offer mild-to-moderate skin tightening effects
  • result in some degree of skin facial contour change
