Actinic Keratosis

Actinic Keratosis, also referred to as AK’s, are pre-cancerous skin growths with the potential to transform into squamous cell carcinoma. Actinic keratosis are caused by repeated and prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun and typically appear as rough spots on areas of the skin that have received sun exposure.

actinic keratosis pre cancer treatment

The treatment for actinic keratosis depends upon the number and size of the lesions. If the growths are small and still in the pre-cancerous stage, they can be frozen with liquid nitrogen or treated with a topical chemotherapy cream or photodynamic therapy. We now offer Blue Light Photodynamic therapy (BLU-U), which is reimbursed by many insurance companies. You can prevent actinic keratosis by reducing sun exposure, especially during the peak hours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you do go outdoors, wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, a hat, and protective clothing.
