There are many changes to the skin as you get older. One skin growth that is common among older adults is seborrheic keratosis. These small skin growths can look similar to other abnormal growths that are linked to skin cancer, but seborrheic keratosis does not pose a health risk. However, it is important to have all irregular skin growths diagnosed. At LM Medical NYC, our board certified dermatologist can diagnose all types of skin growths and perform seborrheic keratosis treatment at our clinic in Manhattan.

Seborrheic keratosis can grow almost anywhere on the skin, but they are most common on the head, face, neck, back and torso, and these growths do not appear on the palms or soles of the feet. They are commonly tan or brown, but the color of these growths can range from white to black. The growths start as small bumps, then become rough and waxy as they get larger. They can resemble a brown wart that is as small as a freckle, or they can be larger than a quarter.

Removing Seborrheic Keratosis

After a seborrheic keratosis has been diagnosed, you can determine whether or not you want the growths removed. These bumps are usually painless, but some can itch or be bothersome due to aesthetics. If you want seborrheic keratosis removed, our dermatologist, renowned skin expert Dr. Morgan Rabach, can perform removal. Most seborrheic keratosis can be quickly removed by shaving it off the skin or removing by excision. Cryotherapy is another option for seborrheic keratosis removal.

Seborrheic keratosis is a common, non-cancerous skin growth for older adults, but they can resemble skin cancer and precancerous growths. For diagnosis and treatment options for skin growths, contact us at LM Medical NYC. We can schedule a skin growth inspection or seborrheic keratosis treatment at our clinic in Greenwich Village.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
