Seborrheic keratosis

Seborrheic Keratosis Treatment

Conventional treatments are based on the local destruction of the tissue:

  1. Cryosurgery (tissue freezing) is an effective but very painful treatment and leaves damage to the treated area that takes a long time to recover.
  2. Electrocoagulation generates, like cryosurgery, a lot of tissue destruction, a long recovery time and the possibility of leaving scars.
  3. Surgical treatment.
  4. Laser treatment.

In Hoogstra Medical Centers we treat keratoses with the Erbium Lotus II laser.

He Lotus It impacts the keratosis at high speed, generating no pain for the patient or damage to neighboring tissues. Leaves no scars.

Large keratoses are generally removed in more than one session.

Clinical picture

Actinic keratoses develop most commonly in the parts of the body that are most exposed to the sun, such as the face, ears, neck, hands, or forearms.
They are usually painless, but can be irritated and itchy. Keratosis presents clinically as rough, scaly patches or lesions.
These spots or lesions are not carcinogenic, but if left untreated they can potentially develop into a serious type of skin cancer called squamous cell carcinoma.

What are the symptoms of actinic keratosis?

Actinic keratosis looks like a pink, brown, or skin-colored spot that is bulky and rough to the touch.

What causes actinic keratosis?

The biggest cause of actinic keratosis is too much sun exposure (natural light like the sun, or artificial light like that of the solarium).

Who is at risk of getting actinic keratosis?

It is more frequent in patients with fair skin, blue eyes of middle age or older who have had a lot of sun exposure.

How is actinic keratosis diagnosed?

People who are at risk of having any skin disorder should check their skin regularly. If you notice any persistent lumps or spots of unusual color, texture, shape, or size, you need to contact a doctor or dermatologist. Other worrying signs are pimples that don't heal or anything else that bleeds easily. The doctor will likely biopsy the skin by removing part or all of the lump to check for cancer cells.

How is actinic keratosis treated?

In most cases, actinic keratosis can be treated and cured. The result is more favorable if the disease is detected in its early stages. Treatment options include the following:
• Topical creams or lotions
• Cryosurgery (freeze it)
• Electro-surgery (use of an electric current)


Our Centers are equipped with the most advanced technology. The most modern treatment today is the exfoliation with the Lotus II Laser, Erbium micro fractionated. It is painless, fast, does not leave scars and the patient immediately continues his social activity.
It does not require the use of anesthesia of any kind, since the laser impact on the tissue is so fast that it does not cause pain or discomfort, allowing the treatment of multiple and large lesions.

How can actinic keratosis be prevented?

The best way to prevent actinic keratosis is to reduce sun exposure, especially during the hours when the sun is at its highest and the light is most intense. Some tips to keep in mind:

  • Wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and a hat to protect areas of the skin that may be exposed to the sun.
    • Apply sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher at least 30 minutes before going outside. A broad spectrum sunscreen is recommended to protect the skin from both A and B ultraviolet rays.
    • Avoid tanning by staying in the sun or using solariums; it is preferable to use self-tanning products

Testicular Vascular Lesions - Fordyce Angiokeratoma in Scrotum

Laser treatment in vascular lesions of the testicle and penis

Vascular dilation of testicular skin can be treated with a laser just like that of the rest of the body. Vascular lasers with wavelengths between 980 and 1,064 nm produce rapid and effective remission. The laser light is absorbed by hemoglobin and oxyhemoglobin from the blood, so the vessels can be coagulated under the skin, without damaging it. Thus, the spider mite is “erased” gradually. Red polka dots or ruby nevi usually disappear with a single session. Spider veins and vascular lesions usually disappear in one or more sessions.

Varicose veins, spider veins, Ruby Nevus, Telangiectasias

El tratamiento láser se ha convertido en una solución efectiva para diversas afecciones vasculares, como las arañitas, las várices y los nevos rubí. La tecnología láser emplea luz que es absorbida por la hemoglobina y la oxihemoglobina en la sangre, lo que permite coagular los vasos sanguíneos bajo la piel sin dañarla.

Mole treatment

Well the truth was my first time and my topic is a mole on the face and I already knew that in the Hoogstra Medical Center it has very good references and the ability to eliminate by laser. I decided to start my treatment to eliminate and I am really very happy. The treatment is very warm and good. I hope to finish in the same way that I would assure you. To people who have not been treated I recommend doing it. Thank you very much.
