Have you been suffering from small and itchy bumps on your skin that appear red or white? You know the ones that look very similar to goosebumps but don’t seem to go away? You may be suffering from Keratosis Pilaris. Naturally your first question will be – can keratosis pilaris go away? And how can you make keratosis pilaris go away for good?
What is Keratosis Pilaris?
Keratosis Pilaris is a very common skin conditions. One that’s completely harmless. But only if you suffer from it you’ll know how annoying the itchiness can be. Not to mention how unattractive it can make you feel. You can develop KP on your arms, legs, bottom, back, scalp and even on your face.
Why do you develop Keratosis Pilaris?
The condition occurs when there’s a build up of Keratin in your skin. Keratin a natural protein, which is the main component of your hair and skin. When the excess Keratin blocks the opening of the hair follicles you’ll see small red and white bumps to appear. In some cases these can be severe, causing you stress.
So how can we make Keratosis Pilaris go away?
Although there’s no specific cure for KP, with a choice of non-surgical procedures and consistent skincare you can manage your condition and reduce symptoms significantly.
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is a superb way of treating Keratosis Pilaris. It’s safe, virtually painless and can be permanent! It works by emitting short pulses of light into the hair follicle, causing it to stop growing hair and close. As a result Keratin can no longer build up and the condition can be drastically improved.
The treatment may take up to 10 sessions for optimum results, but can be a long-term solution to this troublesome condition. And far better than having to shave, wax or epilate the hair, which can be extremely painful and can worsen the symptoms.
Laser hair removal is suitable for all skin types and you could see up to 95% permanent reduction in hair growth. So it’s a win-win!
Medical microdermabrasion could be another treatment option. It works by resurfacing the skin and cleaning blocked pores with very little downtime or discomfort.
At Skin Perfection London, we use the Derma Genesis medical microdermabrasion system. The procedure utilises tiny medical-grade aluminium oxide crystals, which are swept across the skin. The crystals are then gently sucked back up, bringing with them dirt and dead skin cells.
This reveals a smoother, clearer and healthier complexion, less prone to becoming congested. For best results at least 6 sessions are recommended along with strict home skincare.
