Keratosis Pilaris is a common skin condition in which the skin exhibits redness, irritation and patches with a rough texture with small pinpoint white papules that look like small milia.
The cause of this skin condition is the excessive build up of keratin, in the opening of the hair follicles in the skin, causing blockages of the follicle. Creating bumps that are usually white with some inflammation. The skin feels rough and dry like sandpaper. Sometimes the skin colour in the affected area may appear darker.
Treating keratosis pilaris with skin treatments and laser treatments may see an improvement in the skin.
People often find waxing and shaving further aggravates the skin condition, especially of the face and neck area. Continous shaving can result in unwanted pigmentation of the area.
Laser hair removal has proven to be an ideal treatment for clients with keratosis pilaris. As treatments progress the reduction of hair reduces the skin condition resulting in less bumps and an overall improvement in the appearance and condition of the skin.
