CAUSES AND THOSE AT RISK OF ACTINIC KERATOSIS

CAUSES OF ACTINIC KERATOSIS

The major causative of AK is UV rays. When people are exposed to UV rays either from the sun or tanning beds, this condition can be developed.

Our skin gets damaged by UV rays. This damageis usually repaired by our body when we are young, but as we grow older, the damage gets accumulated, and our bodies become less capable of repairing itself. The continuous accumulation of this damage leads to AKs.

THOSE AT RISK OF ACTINIC KERATOSIS

The following people are at a greater risk of getting AKs:

  • Those who have fair skin
  • Those with blonde or red hair
  • Those who have naturally blue, green or hazel eye
  • Those whose skin burn or freckle when in the sun
  • Those who are either 40 years or more
  • Those with a weak immune system which may be caused by having a skin that is very sensitive toUV ray either because of a medical condition or work hazards.

AK mostly shows up after a person has clocked 40 years of age, and it is very common for those who live in areas of intense sunlight. People who make use of sun lamps and tanning beds also have a risk of developing this disease earlier.

OUR PATIENTS REVIEW

Quotes

ReviewsI was suffering from terrible allergies. Over the counter medications didn't help much and life was going from bad to worse. I started spending more time browsing the web for a solution. Then, a colleague recommended me the Clear skin Clinic. I went for the first consultation without much expectation. But the moment I arrived, all my worries were put to rest. I underwent the pinprick allergy testing to learn that I was allergic to dust mites. Since then, I bought cleaning products and vacuums as suggested by these people and that helped. I suffer seldom now, thanks to Clear skin Clinic.

ReviewsMy eczema had been a constant problem since I was young and I had treatment of different sorts with mixed results. It was a colleague who suggested that I go to Clear Skin Clinic and see if they could help. I was so impressed by the staff at the clinic all of whom were kind and efficient. I have started treatment now and my skin is looking so much better.
