MOLES, SPOTS, AND GROWTHS
Seborrheic keratosis is a common, benign (not associated with cancer) skin lesion commonly found on the face, chest or back. It is often “greasy and stuck on” in its clinical appearance. However, it can become red, itchy and scaly, mimicking a skin cancer.
Treatment for seborrheic keratosis is usually cosmetic unless the lesion is irritated or bothersome. At times it warrants a biopsy, for example, if any suspicion of malignancy is present. Keratoses can be treated with liquid nitrogen or heat or removed surgically. They usually don’t recur after they have been removed, but people who are prone to this keratoses might develop more.
Dr. Kormeili will carefully evaluate your skin and make the appropriate treatment recommendation for you.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
