Multiple actinic keratoses on the face and in extra-facial areas are generally found in photodamaged skin, and effective treatment should be instituted. There are a number of proposed treatments, and fluor-hydroxy pulse peel has been considered safe, effective, inexpensive, and feasible for treatment of this condition combined with the previous application of Jessner’s solution or 70% glycolic acid, in a variable number of weekly or fortnightly pulses.
