How Does It Work?
At first glance, Eskata looks like a felt-tip pen. But this pen contains a 40% hydrogen peroxide solution, which is essential for minimizing the appearance of raised SKs. During your treatment – which takes less than 30 minutes to perform – your dermatologist will apply the felt-tip applicator to your raised SKs. You may feel a slight tingling sensation, which is a sign that the hydrogen peroxide solution is going to work. Once your procedure is done, you will get instructions on how to take care of your treated SKs in the coming week.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You’re a good candidate for Eskata treatments if you have raised and/or shiny skin marks that look like light moles, pimples, or freckles. While raised SKs aren’t dangerous, they can make people feel self-conscious about their appearance.
Please note that Eskata cannot be used to treat raised SKs around the eyes, or open and/or infected SKs.
There’s no downtime or recovery associated with Eskata, so you can continue with your normal routine after treatment. We’ll provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your treated SKs within the first week after treatment. Results can vary, depending on the size and/or number of SKs being treated. About 25% of patients can expect to see 75%+ clearance of SKs within three months.
