There are two forms of keratosis: Keratosis Pilaris and Seborrheic Keratosis, both can be easily removed.
Keratosis Pilaris has an appearance of rough, slightly red bumps on the skin. It typically occurs on the outer sides and back of the arms as well on thighs, or legs.
Laser hair removal has been used in keratosis pilaris to decrease hair growth in affected areas. LHR may help decrease the portion of bumps caused by small ingrown, curled hairs. There are no studies indicating a cure for Keratosis.
Seborrheic keratosis is one of the most common skin growths in older adults. Seborrheic keratosis usually appears as brown, black or light tan. The skin growth often appears on the face, chest, shoulders or back, in clusters or individually. The growth has a waxy, scaly, slightly elevated appearance. We can remove Seborrheic Keratosis by cauterizing each layer controlling our depth of penetration.
