The Basics of Actinic Keratosis and How It’s Treated

blue light photodynamic therapy Denver, COHaving smooth skin may sound like a dream that you’ll never make into a reality, especially if you suffer from a condition like actinic keratosis. As a condition that causes little bumps to form on your skin, actinic keratosis is something that is primarily caused by sun damage. Let’s delve a little deeper to learn how it’s caused and treated.

Is it Dangerous?

As previously mentioned, actinic keratosis is caused by sun exposure and is usually the first sign of pre-skin cancer that we see in patients. As long as it’s caught early on and is removed, it typically doesn’t develop into anything more worrisome later on down the line.

How Is It Removed?

Here at Cara Mia Medical Day Spa, we may encourage patients who have actinic keratosis to use our blue light photodynamic therapy. During this procedure, one of our providers will apply a topical medication to the skin and then use a blue light to destroy any precancerous lesions. One of the best parts about blue light photodynamic therapy is that it leaves the rest of the skin virtually unharmed so you won’t have to worry about any additional type of skin damage.

Is It Effective?

For the most part, we have found blue light photodynamic therapy to be effective at treating actinic keratosis, but during your initial consultation with our staff, we will go over all of your questions and concerns and help you pick a treatment that will give you the best results.
