In brief: Many ways

I often use liquid nitrogen spray in my office practice.
However, depending on the number and size and thickness of the ak's , topical treatments with immunologic agents such as zyclara or Picato (ingenol mebutate) can be used. In the past we also used topical Fluorouracil with success.
