ESKATA is the first and only FDA-approved topical treatment for raised SKs. You didn’t choose to get raised SKs, but you can choose to treat them.

SK spots can be flat* or raised with a color that is your normal skin tone or darker. Flat SKs have a velvety or shiny texture. Over time, they may get bigger and more may show up. They may also become thicker and raised with a waxy or rough texture. SKs can appear anywhere on your body, but are most common on the face (hairline/temples), neck, chest, and back.

*ESKATA treats raised SKs.

SKs are harmless spots that pop up as we age. While they may appear concerning, you shouldn’t worry if you have them. SKs are non-cancerous and generally don’t cause any pain or discomfort. SKs are the most common type of bumps seen in a doctor’s office; if you have any concerns, consult a healthcare provider to see if your spots are SKs or something more serious.

ESKATA is the first and only FDA-approved topical treatment for raised SKs.

In clinical studies, 18% of patients experienced clearance of 3 out of 4 of their raised SKs treated with ESKATA vs 0% with vehicle. Results were evaluated at Day 106 after initial treatment. Nearly all patients received 2 treatments. The most common side effects of ESKATA include: itching, stinging, crusting, swelling, redness, and scaling.
