Can laser hair removal treat keratosis pilaris?

Have you been suffering from small, red or white, itchy spot on your arms, thighs, buttocks or face? How many times have these ever made you feel self-conscious to the point where you rather covered them up than let anyone see them? Have these ever influenced your choices of clothing where you add the extra layer than show of your “goose bumps”. You won’t believe how common keratosis pilaris is. And how it can ruin your confidence and self esteem if you let. But not all hope is lost. Laser hair removal can treat keratosis pilaris and it may be the solution that you have been looking for. 

What causes keratosis pilaris?

Keratin is a natural protein found in your hair and skin. When too much Keratin builds up it blocks the opening of your hair follicles. And you’ll start to see small itchy bumps appearing. These won’t go away if you ignore them and can even get worse where it leaves you with discolouration to your skin.

Laser hair removal proven to be one of the most effect hair removal methods. Laser hair removal is a superb way of treating Keratosis Pilaris at its cause. 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 the condition can be drastically improved. The treatment may take up to 9 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!
