How does the Seborrhoeic Keratosis removal process work?

We are proud to offer all our patients the option for same day ‘see and treat’.

We know from our patients how distressing having keratosis can be, and that customers contact us once they’re fed up and want it gone, as such we allocate enough time in each appointment for consultation and treatment to take place on the same day, instead of booking a subsequent follow up for treatment, this saves our customers time and money as they avoid having to come back for two visits.

What happens during the Seborrhoeic Keratosis removal consultation?

During the Seborrheic Keratosis removal consultation your Doctor will run through the procedure and what you can expect. If you’re happy to proceed following the consultation, you can have the procedure there and then, without additional waiting. Or you can opt to come back at a later date for the procedure.

 

There is no cost disadvantage should you wish to have the procedure over two visits. We don’t believe it’s correct to incentivise surgical procedures or pressure customers to go ahead on the same day. Instead we believe our role is to provide customers with all the information they need in order to make an informed decision about their treatment. 

 

We allocate enough time should you wish to have the procedure done on the same day. There are no additional costs for you should you wish to come back for the removal on a different day.

What if I am concerned that it could be cancerous?

Seborrheic Keratoses Removal and Treatment

At City Dermatology, the initial step in addressing your seborrheic keratoses involves an introductory consultation with one of our specialists. This assessment encompasses a thorough examination of your skin growths and a comprehensive discussion about your medical history. 

 

If removal is indicated, we recognise that even minor procedures can be a little distressful, we are committed to ensuring your experience is as comfortable and painless as possible, you shouldn’t expect to experience any discomfort. With the area numbed, your Doctor will carefully remove the seborrheic keratoses. Post-procedure the remaining mark should be minimal and will gradually fade over time.

 

The recovery period is usually brief and can get back to work or resume regular activities shortly after the procedure. This is a general guide but your Doctor will provide you with specific aftercare for your particular procedure. We might recommend refraining from strenuous exercise for approximately a week. This precaution helps prevent inadvertent injury to the treated area and supports the healing process.

Is Seborrheic keratosis removal painful?

The procedure itself is painless, this is because we use anaesthetic to numb the area before removal or treatment.

FAQs

When should I look to remove my seborrhoeic keratosis?

Although seborrheic keratoses typically do not necessitate treatment, many individuals opt for removal due to cosmetic reasons or if they become irritated and prone to bleeding when rubbed against clothing.

 

Despite their harmlessness, seborrheic keratoses can sometimes resemble melanoma, a serious form of skin cancer. This underscores the importance of having any new or changing skin growths assessed by a medical professional.

What is Seborrheic Keratosis?

Seborrheic keratosis, known as seborrheic wart, is a benign skin lesion often mistaken for a mole. 

 

We frequently perform procedures to remove these harmless yet potentially cosmetically concerning skin growths.

 

Seborrheic keratoses vary in colour from pink to nearly black, and they typically have a rough texture. While they can appear anywhere on the body, they are most commonly found on sun-exposed areas such as the face and neck.

 

These skin growths tend to appear from the age of 40 onward, particularly in individuals with a history of sun exposure. Despite their harmless nature, many individuals choose to have them removed to address cosmetic concerns.

What causes Seborrheic Keratosis?

The precise causes of seborrheic keratoses remain unknown, although genetics are believed to play a role, with their appearance becoming more common in middle age.

 

 Unfortunately once these growths manifest, they will not disappear on their own. 

 

As time passes, particularly as you age, you may notice an increasing number of them. Skin warts like these are more common than skin cancer and are typically distinguishable by a trained Doctor during consultation without the need for complex tests. 

 

However, it’s crucial to book a consultation with a doctor if you detect any new or unusual skin lumps or discolorations to rule out potential skin cancers.

Where can Seborrheic Keratosis appear?

Seborrheic Keratosis can appear anywhere on the body, single or multiple, small or big, most commonly presenting on the chest, back, scalp, and neck. Occurrences on the face or other body parts are also possible.

Is Seborrheic keratosis removal painful?

The procedure itself is painless, this is because we use anaesthetic to numb the area before removal or treatment
