Actinic Keratosis Treatment in Dubai

The human skin is exposed to many different pollutants, and other substances daily. Some of these often leave a long-term effect on the skin. Getting the right amount of vitamin D is essential to the human body, but often the over-dosing of sunlight can cause harmful effects on our skin. Actinic Keratosis is a skin disease that is mainly caused by ultraviolet rays. If you have been experiencing rough, patchy, bumps on your epidermis then we have the best Actinic Keratosis Treatment in Dubai for you.

Understanding Actinic Keratosis:

The raised rough patches on the skin that appear due to being exposed to sunlight are known as actinic keratosis. These skin abnormalities appear to be red, gray, pink, or in skin color. These rough patches do not occur in adults but are more common in older people. Most people are not familiar with what actinic keratosis is and treat it like normal lesions. However these abnormalities are not harmful, but their cells can become cancerous which is why they are also known as precancerous cells. 

Who Are More Prone To Developing Actinic Keratosis?

This disorder is common but it does not occur in every other individual. Certain factors may make a person more prone to developing it such as:

  • It is common to occur in people of old age.
  • People who have weak immune systems. 
  • People who suffer from skin conditions such as albinism, or xeroderma pigmentosum. 
  • Individuals who have darker skin tones.
  • People with fair tones have less protective pigment.

How Is Actinic Keratosis Diagnosed?

To diagnose actinic keratosis, your doctor will first begin to examine your skin by examining it with the naked eye. If it’s difficult to make a proper diagnosis with the naked eye then the doctor will perform a skin biopsy. For the biopsy process, the doctor will take a small part of the skin to examine it under the microscope.

Outcomes of The Treatment:

A good dermatologist and a suitable treatment can help patients overcome these epidermis issues. After the completion of the treatment, the patients achieve a skin that is clear and does not suffer from inflammation, and redness. The treatment is long-lasting. But it’s always better to avoid excessive UV rays to prolong the effects of the treatment.

Treatment Methods For Actinic Keratosis:

At Dynamic Aesthetic Clinic, we offer viable methods for overcoming the issues of these skin problems. Let us guide you about each and every method in detail:

  • Cryotherapy:

The freezing method is often considered the best, and the most suitable method for treating these lesions. For this purpose, your dermatologist will first apply a freezing substance, such as liquid nitrogen to your affected area. After the required number of treatment sessions, the lesions fall off on their own. However, it’s pretty normal for people to experience crusts or blisters.

  • Curettage:

This outdated method is not recommended by the dermatologist unless the patient’s AK is extremely thick. For this method, the dermatologist will use a curette to remove the affected part of the skin and then will use the electrodesiccation method.

  • Chemical Peel:

For this method, the dermatologist applies a chemical solution to the patient’s skin. The chemical solution destroys the top layers of the epidermis. The treatment region will appear swollen, or red after the process, but these symptoms subside after a few days. One should never try this solution at home all by themselves but should always consult a professional expert for it.

  • Photodynamic Therapy:

This method is best suitable for people who continue to develop AKs after the treatment, or if their AK keeps on reappearing again. For this procedure, a solution is applied to the epidermis that makes it extremely sensitive. After the solution application, the patient is then exposed to red, or blue light. The light helps destroy the lesions. 

  • Laser Therapy:

The expert will use the laser resurfacing method when the precancerous growth occurs on the lip region. The laser helps remove the outer surface. This method also helps the new epidermis layer to appear, which is much better than the previous one.

How To Prevent Solar Keratosis?

Below are some prevention methods that can prevent one from developing AKs:

  • People who are prone to it should try to limit spending their time in the sun. As sunburns or suntans can lead one to develop this disease.
  • One should always apply sunscreen whenever going outdoors. A good SPF protection can help you from the harmful effects of the UV rays.
  • Try to wear clothes that fully cover up your arms and legs. So that most of the body is not exposed to the harmful sun rays.
  • If an individual is more prone to developing this disease then they should avoid tanning methods at all costs.
  • Try to keep a regular check on your skin. If you notice any unusual symptoms, try to seek help from a professional as early as possible. Do not wait for the abnormalities to get in their worst shape.
