At Madison Skin & Laser Center in Seattle, we have been providing medical, cosmetic, and surgical dermatology care to the greater Seattle area since 1999. We offer a range of treatment options for pre-skin cancers.
Over time, sun exposure can lead to the development of rough patches on one’s face, ears and hands. These patches are called actinic keratoses and are pre-skin cancers. Between 1 to 5% of actinic keratoses will develop into a skin cancer, making them important to treat.
We will design a treatment program for you, including options such as:
- Liquid nitrogen
- Creams with fluorouracil (Efudex, Carac) to treat these pre-skin cancers or imiquimod (Aldara)
Dr. Brandith Irwin is a board certified dermatologist. She provides exams and multiple treatment options for actinic keratoses at our Seattle dermatology office.
