Actinic KeratosisActinic Keratosis is a pre-cancerous lesion that develops on the skin as a result of age, sun exposure, and sun damage over time. This condition is more common in people with fair skin. While some lesions may disappear on their own by avoiding sun exposure, treatment may be essential. Actinic keratosis can develop into skin cancer, including squamous cell carcinoma. Dr. Berg offers several treatments for actinic keratosis, including medical therapy, photodynamic therapy, chemical peels, and laser resurfacing. If you believe you have or are at risk of having actinic keratosis, contact Dr. Berg’s office for more information on diagnosis and treatment options.
