Actinic keratosis or solar keratosis is a spot that occurs due to an excessive sun exposure. It is a non-cancerous skin development, but if left untreated for a longer period, it can turn into a cancerous growth.

What Causes Actinic keratosis

The actinic keratosis develops on the outermost layer of the skin and is mainly caused by the prolonged exposure to the sun. Following are some other causes of Actinic Keratosis.

  • Undergoing a kidney transplant may sometimes cause these marks
  • Intake of the medications that suppress the immune system
  • Severe sunburn when young

Treatment Options

Initially, our specialist examines your skin whether it appears like a cancerous growth or not. If it does, a biopsy is conducted to determine the real cause of your Actinic Keratosis.


After diagnosing, the doctors will treat the areas with repeated sessions until the ketosis goes away. Below are some options for Actinic Keratosis Treatments in Dubai.


Cryosurgery also called freezing, is the most common keratosis treatment that uses nitrogen to freeze the surface of the skin. The treated areas swell and get peels off after some days, ultimately removing the actinic keratosis.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a well-known anti-aging treatment that can also be useful to eliminate Actinic Keratosis from the skin. A chemical substance is applied at the topmost layer of the skin to completely slough them off.

Laser Treatment

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that removes the outer layer of the skin to the desired depth. This can be applied to any part of the body. In order to make the procedure pain free, a local anesthesia is administered.

Topical treatments

If you have diffuse actinic keratosis, your specialist may advise topical cream, gel or arrangement. These can treat apparent and hidden keratosis. Specialists sometimes call this type of treatments as “field treatment,” since the topical medicines can cover a wide field of skin instead of focusing on the single lesion.
