What are these spots on my face?
If they are SKs, they are harmless—but your
dermatologist is the one to make that diagnosis.
SKs are non-cancerous growths. The spots can
be flat* or raised with a color that is normal
skin tone or darker. SKs can have a velvety, shiny,
or wart-like texture and grow thicker. Over time,
they may get bigger and more may show up.
Why did I get them?
Risk factors include age and genetics.
Raised SKs can show up in your 40s—
or even in your 30s. You didn’t choose to
get raised SKs—but you can
choose to treat them.
