Actinic Keratosis

by Dr. Yiannis Neofytou

Actinic Keratosis

Actinic keratosis is called actinic or solar keratosis because it is due to the effect of solar radiation on the skin.

Initially, they appear as very small plaques that grow slowly and we feel them more than we see them. They appear in parts of the body that are exposed to the sun such as the face, the scalp.

The most common treatment methods for Radiant Hyperkeratoses are:

  1. cryocoagulation (usually with liquid nitrogen)
  2. laser cauterization
  3. cauterization with diathermocoagulation
  4. photodynamic therapy (PDT)
  5. the local application of pharmaceutical preparation

Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
