Actinic keratosis

Actinic keratosis is the most common #precancer that forms on the skin damaged by chronic exposure to UV (Ultraviolet); today we removed an actinic keratosis using the Erbium Laser (photos are made immediately after the removal, in about 2 weeks the wound will heal with no scar)

How to spot an actinic keratosis: flat to slightly raised, scaly, crusty, and rough, sometimes with a raised horn shape or bump.

Various colors: pink, skin-colored silvery or brown.,

Most commonly found on sun-exposed skin: face, lips, ears, back of your hands, scalp or neck..

Treatment: creams or gels #cryotherapie #pdt (photodynamic therapy); #lasertherapy #curettage (scraping)

!! Sometimes a skin biopsy may be necessary.

This is why we highly recommend yearly skin checks and early treatment of any actinic keratosis. ⠀

Prevention is better that treatments
