Partial removal of the softened IPK tissue
with a 5mm dermal curette - a blood-free field is typical. No need for anesthesia, vesicants, phenol, laser, electrosurgery or cryosurgery.
Lesion's appearance after the 24 hr. TDS Cure Period & 15 min. water soak. Note the bandage outline, softened HK tissue and the missing IPK core - achieved without any patient discomfort!
Chronic Keratosis (IPK) TDS Treatment Photos
Note the intact dermal layer compressed by
the overlying HK tissue. The TDS System selectively softens the HK tissue for removal which then allows the normal underlying dermis to rebound naturally.
Only one initial curettage stroke was made before exceeding the patient's comfort level. TransDermSolutions (TDS) were applied and the IPK occluded with the enclosed bandage .
The hyperkeratinized core of this IPK lesion was removed intact as shown above. This TDS procedure was completed in just 24 hrs. without anesthesia - nothing else is nearly as effective. Patient & provider both win with TDS!
The debrided & cleaned plantar surface - note the "pink" dermis in the original IPK location. The patient is pain free for the first time in many years & more inclined to seek treatment again, if needed, now that TDS is available.
No More Vesicants!
