Actinic-Keratosis

Actinic-Keratosis

Also known as solar keratosis and sometimes as senile keratosis, actinic keratosis evidences itself in thick, tough growths or sections of skin—especially on the face, lips, ears, the scalp, backs of hands, forearms or the neck. Usually caused by sun damage, actinic keratosis is most common in fair-skinned individuals. It often begins as a tough patch of skin and develops into a scaly, wart-like lesion. Beyond being unsightly, this condition is potentially quite serious: if left untreated, it may develop into skin cancer. That’s why catching actinic keratosis early is so important. For patients dealing with this condition, Dr. Gurgen provides powerful, proven treatment methods that can remove the problem and restore your overall health.
