Are you suffering with Actinic Keratosis?

This skin condition, also known as solar keratosis, is often displayed as a rough scaly patch on the skin that is caused by years of sun exposure can be rather uncomfortable to live with. Aside from its concerning appearance that resembles the look of warts, Actinic Keratosis is actually classified as a precancer.

If left untreated, it is possible that this condition can develop in to skin cancer. The main cause of Actinic Keratosis is derived from exposure to artificial UV sources, in most cases, indoor tanning. Located anywhere from the face and neck to scalp, shoulders and backs of hands, all areas exposed are susceptible to becoming affected.
