What triggers keratosis pilaris?

Keratosis pilaris, often referred to as ‘chicken skin’, is a common, harmless skin condition. It results in tiny, rough bumps on the skin, primarily on the upper arms, thighs, cheeks, and buttocks. Many who experience this condition are constantly on the lookout for effective treatments. Leading them to the doors of clinics offering the best laser hair removal in London and beyond. But before diving into its treatment, let’s explore what triggers keratosis pilaris?

What is keratosis pilaris?

Keratosis Pilaris is a very common skin condition and completely harmless. But if you suffer with it, can be something of a less than welcome part of life, due to its sometimes, unattractive appearance.  The condition occurs when there is a build-up of a substance called Keratin. This is a natural protein, which in fact is the main component of the hair as well as healthy skin. Excess amounts of Keratin block the openings of the hair follicles, which can cause the small red or white bumps to appear.

What triggers keratosis pilaris?

  • Genetics. Often, keratosis pilaris runs in families. If one or both parents have it, there’s a chance their children might develop it too.
  • Weather conditions. The condition often worsens in dry climates and during winters when the air is least humid. This lack of moisture in the air can make the skin parched, exacerbating keratosis pilaris.
  • Hormonal changes. Hormonal fluctuations during puberty, pregnancy, or other life phases can trigger or intensify the condition.

Now that we’ve understood the primary triggers let’s delve into an effective remedy.

Laser hair removal is a prime solution for Keratosis Pilaris

Although a harmless condition, Keratosis Pilaris doesn’t have to be endured and at Skin Perfection London, we make it our mission to offer you the most effective, innovative and high-tech device-led treatments to restore smooth, healthy looking skin, all-year-round. Laser hair removal has proven to be one of the most effective treatments for keratosis pilaris. And here’s why:

The process involves directing concentrated light beams at the affected areas. This not only targets hair follicles but also aids in reducing the inflammation and redness associated with keratosis pilaris.

As keratosis pilaris can be aggravated by ingrown hairs, the significant reduction in hair growth post-laser treatment helps in alleviating the condition’s symptoms.

When conducted by certified professionals, laser hair removal is a safe procedure. For those searching for safe laser hair removal options in London, it’s pivotal to choose a reputable clinic known for offering the best laser hair removal services.

For individuals suffering from keratosis pilaris, and are embarrassed about facial hair due to hormonal conditions or are tired of regular shaving routines, laser hair removal offers a dual solution. Not only does it address unwanted hair growth but also aids in improving the texture and appearance of the skin. Your skin deserves the best, and an informed decision is the first step towards radiant, smooth skin.
