Are you a Gwinnett County resident diagnosed with actinic keratoses? This skin condition can put you at a greater risk for developing skin cancer. Proper medical treatment can help you reduce your risk and improve your overall quality of life. Medical Dermatology Specialists specializes in advanced medical solutions for actinic keratoses treatment in Lawrenceville.

Symptoms of Actinic Keratoses

Actinic keratoses are dry and scaly skin patches formed from years of sun exposure. If left untreated, these lesions can lead to the development of skin cancer. The symptoms of actinic keratoses include red, rough bumps and patches on the skin. These bumps can typically appear on the face, chest, back, hands and forearms. Symptoms typically start to appear in individuals over 40 years old.

The risk for developing actinic keratoses can be prevented by minimizing exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun and tanning beds. If the symptoms are left untreated, the risk for the development of a skin cancer known as squamous cell carcinoma can increase by 10% for an individual.

Actinic Keratoses Treatment Options

There are several treatment options available for actinic keratoses. Treatment options may depend on your age, health and number of lesions you may have. Options can include topical treatments, chemical peels, laser resurfacing and photodynamic therapy. Depending on the severity of symptoms, several treatment sessions may be needed. In order to determine the best course of action for treating your symptoms, a consultation with a Lawrenceville dermatologist in Gwinnett County is highly recommended.

Surgical treatments can also be effective at removing isolated actinic keratoses. One outpatient procedure is cryosurgery, where liquid nitrogen is used to freeze damaged tissue. This allows the tissue to fall off so healthy tissue can emerge. A dermatologist may also use surgery to cut away lesions or apply laser therapy to vaporize actinic keratoses. Depending on your individual needs, a combination of these therapies may be employed to provide safe and effective treatment for managing your symptoms.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
