Seborrhoeic Keratosis Removal

Seborrhoeic keratoses are benign growths of epidermal cells. They are not cancerous, but because of the presentation of these growths it is highly recommended to get them checked with your GP before having them removed.

Seborrhoeic keratosis is commonly found on mature or elderly people but can also appear in younger people.

These growths can also be known as senile warts, but this growth is not part of the wart family. Most people will have more than one growth, and more may appear as you age.

Seborrhoeic keratoses have a rough surface and range from light, golden brown to dark brown.

At Hayley’s Hair Removal & Aesthetics Poole, we will assess any skin imperfections and advise you on the best treatment plan moving forwards.

Frequently asked questions

How Does Seborrhoeic Keratosis Removal Work?

Diathermy will be used to remove the growth. We use a small probe to gently lift the seborrhoeic keratosis. We will move the probe around the perimeter of the growth, slowly working towards the centre, until the growth lifts away.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

Usually, one treatment is enough to successfully remove a seborrhoeic keratosis growth. However, if we cannot remove the entire growth, then a second treatment will be needed 4-6 weeks later to prevent it growing back.

If you have several growths, you may need to come in multiple times to have all these removed.

What Causes Seborrhoeic Keratosis

Seborrhoeic keratosis is caused by natural ageing and sun damage. Genetics can also play a role in the development of these growths.
