Inclusion Criteria: 1. Subject is at least 18 years old 2. Subject has a clinical diagnosis of stable, clinically typical AK 3. Subject has a treatment area on 1 dorsal forearm that in: Cohort 1: - Is one contiguous area - Measures 25 cm2 - Contains 4 to 8 AK lesions that are clinically typical. Cohort 2: - Is one contiguous area - Measures 100 cm2 - Contains 8 to 16 AK lesions that are clinically typical. 4. All women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must be: - Post-menopausal, defined as at least 50 years of age with amenorrhea for at least 18 months, or - Surgically sterile, defined as having undergone a hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy or tubal ligation, or otherwise incapable of pregnancy. - Pre or perimenopausal and practicing a highly effective method of birth control, including hormonal prescription, oral contraceptives, contraceptive injections, contraceptive patch, and intrauterine device, for the duration of their participation in the study.

Subject is, in the opinion of the investigator, in good general health based on medical history, physical examination, electrocardiogram (ECG), and clinical laboratory evaluations at screening. 6. Subject has clinically acceptable liver function at screening as demonstrated by: - Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ≤ 2x upper limit of normal (ULN) - Total bilirubin ≤ ULN 7. No other screening laboratory test, including CBC results, considered clinically significant by the investigator 8. Subject is not lactating 9. Subject is willing and able to follow all study instructions and to attend all study visits 10. Subject is able to comprehend and willing to sign an Informed Consent Form (ICF) Exclusion Criteria: 1. Subject has clinically atypical and/or rapidly changing AK lesions on the treatment area 2. Subject has current systemic malignancy 3. Subject has used any of the following systemic therapies within the specific period before Visit 1: - Retinoids; 180 days - Glucocortico-steroids; 28 days - Methotrexate or other anti-metabolites; 28 days 4. Subject has used any of the following topical therapies on the treatment area within the specified period before Visit 1: - Retinoids; 90 days - Glucocortico-steroids; 14 days 5. Subject has had any of the following of the AK therapies on the treatment area: Medical Therapies within 90 days (or until the site has healed, whichever is longer) before Visit 1: - Ingenol mebutate (eg, Picato) - 5-fluorouracil (eg, 5-FU; Efudex) - Imiquimod (eg, Aldara; Zyclara) - Diclofenac with or without hyaluronic acid (eg, Solaraze) - Moisturizer, emollients (12 hours prior to Visit 1) Surgical Modalities on the treatment area within 30 days (or until the site has healed following treatment, whichever is longer) before Visit 1: - Cryotherapy - Electrodesiccation - Laser, light (eg, photodynamic therapy, intense pulsed light) or any other energy based therapy - Chemical peels (eg, tricholoracetic acid) - Dermabrasion - Surgical removal (eg, curettage, excision) 6. Subject currently has, or has experienced any of the following on the treatment area within the specified period before Visit 1: - A cutaneous malignancy; 180 days - Sunburn; 28 days - Body art (eg, tattoo, piercing); currently - Excessive tan; currently 7.
