What is Keratosis pilaris?
This benign skin condition causes the skin to become rough and bumpy with a pimply appearance. It is commonly found on the body but can also appear on the face, often causing white bumps or pimples under the eyes. It is caused when hair follicles become blocked by keratin plugs, the protein that your body uses to create hair, skin, nails, and dead skin cells.
Chicken skin can become itchy and inflamed. This can be worse in cold weather or if the skin is very dehydrated. Keratosis pilaris is not infectious.
Chicken skin treatment in London
Our therapists always complete a skin assessment before starting any treatment, and their expertise will allow them to choose the correct approach for your skin.
A highly effective but gentle exfoliating peel combined with a gentle resurfacing technique is an excellent way to treat keratosis pilaris. We use medical-grade microdermabrasion combined with Epionce Lite Refresh Peel. The microdermabrasion resurfaces the skin removing the bumpiness and pimples while the peel penetrates the pores and hair follicles, unclogging them by removing the layer of keratin blocking them. This process is safe and suitable for all skin types.
In susceptible individuals, the condition may return, so a good skin maintenance regime is essential. We recommend the Epionce range of skincare products with botanical ingredients to cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate your skin.
Our highly trained therapists have treated many cases of keratosis pilaris. They will design a bespoke treatment regime addressing your needs, sometimes combining treatments for the best outcome. The cost of one session is £165.
