Destructive therapies such as liquid nitrogen cryotherapy and surgical therapy are the gold standard for AK therapy among the various treatment methods available. Cryotherapy was the most commonly sought treatment by clinicians in 2015. However, improved clinical results of photodynamic therapy and a growing preference for drug-device combination therapy have encouraged both caregivers and patients to opt for novel treatment methods that offer both advanced efficacy, esthetic benefits and reduced risk of future malignancies. Topical treatment is a prolonged treatment and is comparatively more effective than other treatments, but patient compliance is a key issue that hinders the growth of this segment.
