Seborrheic keratosis is not harmful and does not require treatment. It can be removed if they irritate you.
Seborrheic keratosis can be removed using one or more of the following techniques:
- Growth is being frozen: Cryotherapy (freezing a growth with liquid nitrogen) can be an effective technique to eradicate seborrheic keratosis. It does not usually work on thicker, elevated growths. This procedure carries the danger of irreversible pigment loss, particularly on or dark skin.
- Curettage is the scraping or shaving of the skin's surface the specialist will numb the region before removing the growth with a scalpel blade. Shaving or scraping is sometimes performed in conjunction with cryosurgery to cure thinner or flat developments.
- Using an electric current to burn (electrocautery). The expert would numb the region first, then use electrocautery to eliminate the growth. This approach can be used alone or in conjunction with scraping to remove thicker growths.
