Over the last decades, there has been a dramatic increase of skin tumour incidence that results from actinic damage. This increase is mainly due to the current demographic development, but also due to a change in spare time habits. Thus, the treatment and prevention of light induced skin tumours is gaining interest, but also the treatment of photoaged skin. This review will focus on 1) the basic principles of actinic damage including carcinogenesis; 2) treatment options for photoaged skin and 3) an overview of current therapy concepts of light induced skin tumours.
