Approximately 75% of people over 70 years old have been affected by symptoms of seborrheic keratosis. Many individuals are unaware of this skin disorder and can be startled when growths begin to develop during middle age. These skin growths can look cancerous, but are usually benign. Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville offers effective seborrheic keratosis treatment solutions.

Symptoms of Seborrheic Keratosis

The symptoms of seborrheic keratosis include round or oval-shaped skin growths raised on the skin with a scaly or waxy appearance. These growths can look similar to warts and appear in clusters on the face, arms, chest, back or shoulders. Bleeding or itching may occur with friction against clothing. Growths can appear anywhere on the body and vary in color and size. While typically painless, you may experience itching or tingling sensations.

Causes of Seborrheic Keratosis

While the exact cause is unknown, potential causes of seborrheic keratosis may include genetics and excessive sun exposure. The skin condition could also be related to aging, since it occurs more frequently in Lawrenceville adults over 50 years old in Gwinnett County and throughout the United States. Individuals with a lighter skin tone are at greater risk of developing seborrheic keratosis. There is no known way to prevent the development of seborrheic keratosis.

Seborrheic Keratosis Removal Treatment

While seborrheic keratosis treatment is not necessary, many individuals who experience friction irritation may benefit from surgical removal. A dermatologist numbs the area and selects the best surgical technique for removal. These surgical techniques include freezing, burning, shaving or laser removal. Nonsurgical treatments may include acid peels and creams. A consultation with a Lawrenceville dermatologist at Medical Dermatology Specialists in Gwinnett County can help determine the best treatment plan for you.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
