Imiquimod Cream 5% for Actinic Keratosis vs. a More Natural Face Peel
I have been prescribed Imiquimod cream for sun damage on my face AK. Dr wants me to apply this because their is a CHANCE this could someday be skin cancer. I personally want to look for a slower face type natural peel vs this aggressive cream approach. I have seen the pictures and patients basically look like a train wreck for 2 to 3 months and are miserable. I am outside sales and really would like to look at an alternative that may take longer but not as aggressive.
