The management of actinic keratosis and non-melanoma skin cancers

Session Date:

Dr Marc Lawrence will be exploring the defining characteristics of Actinic Keratosis and its link with skin cancers.

Marc will also outline the important role of OTC skin preparations in the prevention of actinic keratoses and explain how to recognise a normal reaction from a field treatment, versus the need to refer to a specialist Dermatologist.

He will also share the formula for an effective sun protection plan for patients to reduce the risk of sun damage to their skin.

Marc will also be visiting the L’Oreal Dermatological Beauty stand after the session to answer further questions about this topic.
