Seborrheic keratosis has usually an oval shape with smooth tip and the color ranges from brownish or gray to black. It can be flat but usually protrudes from the skin a few millimeters and sometimes looks like a “stepped on raisin”.

In many cases it grows even a few centimeters both in length and in width.
Usually they have oily texture and have hyperkeratotic spicules and they become rough and can be rubbed easily.

Sometimes through friction with the clothes or after scrapping , parts of it fall of but because the roots still stand they grow back quickly.

Seborrheic keratosis manifests on hairy bodyparts with increased oiliness.

Most often it is found on hair of the scalp, on cheeks, on the forehead, on the shoulders, the back, chest and abdomen and less often on the upper and lower limbs.

Seborrheic keratosis requires no treatment. If there is irritation, itchiness, or is unattractive or bleeding it can be removed in the clinic.

The treatment is usually painless. The main methods are scraping, cryosurgery, electrosurgery and laser removal.



Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
