What's a Seborrheic Wart?

A Seborrheic wart is most commonly known as Seborrheic keratoses and is a harmless (benign) skin growth that some people develop as they age. Clients often call them "age spots" and find them cosmetically displeasing. As it usually appears as a pale, black, or brown growth on the back, shoulders, chest, or face. The growths usually look waxy, scaly and are slightly raised. Most people will develop at least one in there life, usually from mid 30's and upward in age.

What Causes Seborrheic Warts?

Dermatologists are not certain what causes these skin growths but feel it's linked to aging, sun damaged skin. Skin friction may be a possible factor, as they often appear in skin folds.
