Description

BACKGROUND: Seborrheic karatoses are benign lesions that are easily irritated and often cosmetically objectionable. Liquid nitrogen cryotherapy and other surgical methods are useful in treating these lesions, but are difficult to tolerate in patients who have large numbers of lesions requiring treatment. The alexandrite laser was used in one patient to quickly and efficiently destroy hundreds of seborrheic keratoses. The treatment was tolerable and excellent cosmetic results were achieved.
