Eskata Topical Solution – Liver Spots Treatment

Written by Dr. Ringpfeil


Although most people have “liver spots,” “age spots” or “sun spots”, many want to get rid of the raised dark spots that are seborrheic keratoses (SKs). Although SKs are not harmful, the raised dark spots can be a cosmetic issue. At Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology in Philadelphia, the ESKATA topical solution is available to help remove unwanted SKs.

ESKATA is comprised of a highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide solution. Our skilled dermatologists in Philadelphia can help treat your SKs with the ESKATA topical solution, returning your skin to a smooth, clear complexion.

How ESKATA Topical Solution Targets SKs

What is the ESKATA topical solution? When you visit our Philadelphia offices, located at 1516 Locust Street, and 569 W. Lancaster Avenue in Haverford, you will be able to view the ESKATA topical solution up close. The FDA-approved ESKATA topical solution uses its 40% hydrogen peroxide active ingredient to target these skin marks in a non-invasive manner. ESKATA is applied directly to the SKs as the solution is administered via a specially designed pen at Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology.

Once applied to the brown “liver spots,” the ESKATA solution starts to target the discoloration. With the use of this topical solution the raised SKs will eventually flake away, allowing the skin beneath it to reappear.

Will ESKATA get rid of my dark marks?

During your visit to our Philadelphia or Haverford dermatology centers, our experts will be able to guide your journey and help determine if you have raised SKs. ESKATA is beneficial in that it does not scar the skin, or leave behind discolored skin once the liver spots are removed.

Is ESKATA painful?

Overall, patients find their ESKATA topical solution treatments mild, with a pain level of only 2 or 3 on a pain scale of 1 to 10. After the treatment, redness, itchy skin, swelling, and crusting have been reported, though these symptoms tend to subside shortly after the treatment.

What is the recovery period from ESKATA?

Expect the treated skin to potentially turn white and dry due to the high concentration of hydrogen peroxide for a few hours after your ESKATA topical solution treatment.

Keep the treated skin uncovered and do not use Retin-A solution on the area for one week. It is also recommended to avoid swimming in chlorinated water for at least 24 hours after. However, it is fine to clean the treated skin, apply cosmetics and sunscreen two hours after your session.

Side effects of ESKATA topical solution

Our experts at Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology in Philadelphia can answer all of your concerns prior to treatment of SKs with the ESKATA topical solution. A professional should administer ESKATA topical solution because severe consequences can occur if ESKATA accidentally is placed in the eyes. Side effects of the ESKATA topical solution may include ulcers, scars, the erosion of skin, and blisters. Therefore, it is important to rely on expert skin care professionals to administer the ESKATA dermatological topical solution to remove your dark spots.
