Seborrheic Keratosis

What Causes Seborrheic Keratosis?

Seborrheic keratoses are harmless, benign, common skin growths that first appear during adult life. As time goes by, more growths appear. Seborrheic keratoses are genetic and plan to get more as you age. They begin as slightly raised, light brown spots. Gradually, they thicken and take on a rough, warty like surface. They slowly darken and may turn black. These color changes are harmless. Seborrheic keratoses are superficial and look as if they were stuck on the skin, like a barnacle.


The good news is, seborrheic keratoses can easily be removed in the office.
