Electrodesiccation & Curetage

With this method, your dermatologist uses a curette (a rounded metal object with a sharp edge) to scrape out the actinic keratosis. Electrical current is then used to burn (electrodesiccate) the base of the lesion. This process is repeated three times to obtain a margin around the actinic keratosis.
