Are you fed up with the little, red or white itchy bumps that creep up again and again on your arms, legs, buttocks, may be even on your face? Are you ready to find out if laser hair removal will get rid of keratosis pilaris? Here is everything you need to know about laser hair removal and treating keratosis pilaris.
Keratosis Pilaris is a stubborn and very common condition. And even though it’s harmless, it doesn’t make it less annoying. Not to mention the impact on your confidence. Especially when you find yourself constantly covering up your skin and shoving your favourite clothes aside as you don’t feel attractive in them anymore.
KP is caused by dead skin cells blocking your hair follicles ( pores) in your skin. Typically tend to appear during the winter months, when the air is dry and may improve during the warmer summer months when the humidity is higher.
Patients who suffer from dry skin, eczema, asthma, excess body weight or hay fever may be more prone to suddenly develop Keratosis Pilaris.
Will laser hair removal get rid of keratosis pilaris?
One way of reducing the build up in the follicles is removing the follicle itself. Laser hair removal is a superb way of treating the cause at its root. It’s safe, virtually painless and can be permanent! It works by emitting short pulses of light in to the hair follicle, causing it to stop growing hair and to close. This means that it can no longer be blocked by the Keratin and your condition can be drastically improved. The treatment may take up to 8 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 exacerbate 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
