Keratosis pilaris, often referred to as "KP" or "chicken skin," is a common skin condition that manifests as small, raised bumps on the skin's surface. These bumps are typically flesh-colored, white, or reddish and may resemble the texture of goosebumps or the skin of a plucked chicken. KP most commonly appears on the upper arms, thighs, buttocks, and occasionally on the face, back, and other body parts.

Keratosis pilaris occurs when keratin, a protein that protects the skin, builds up and clogs the hair follicles, leading to the formation of these small, rough bumps. While the condition is generally harmless and not associated with any serious health risks, it can be cosmetically bothersome and may cause itching or discomfort in some cases.

Causes of Keratosis Pilaris:

The exact cause of keratosis pilaris is not fully understood, but it is believed to be related to several factors:

  1. Genetics: KP tends to run in families, suggesting a genetic predisposition to the condition.

  2. Keratin Overproduction: The condition is characterized by an excessive production of keratin, which can clog hair follicles and result in the characteristic bumps.

  3. Skin Dryness: Dry skin can exacerbate KP symptoms. When the skin lacks moisture, it can lead to an increased buildup of keratin.

  4. Cold Weather: Symptoms may worsen in cold, dry weather, as low humidity can contribute to skin dryness and aggravate the condition.

In-Clinic Professional Treatments for Keratosis Pilaris:

When keratosis pilaris is particularly bothersome or resistant to home treatments, individuals may seek professional help from dermatologists for more advanced therapies. Here are some in-clinic treatments that may be recommended:

  1. Laser Therapy:

    • Pulsed dye laser therapy is a common treatment option for reducing the redness and inflammation associated with keratosis pilaris. It works by targeting the blood vessels that contribute to redness. CO2 Laser is another better option.
  2. Chemical Peels:

    • Dermatologists can perform chemical peels using stronger acids than those available over the counter. These peels exfoliate the skin, reducing the appearance of bumps and improving skin texture.
  3. Microdermabrasion:

    • Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure in which a machine exfoliates the skin's surface, helping to smooth rough patches and reduce the visibility of KP bumps.
  4. Photodynamic Therapy:

    • This treatment combines the application of a photosensitizing drug with specific wavelengths of light to target and improve the affected areas, reducing the texture and redness of keratosis pilaris.
  5. Cryotherapy:

    • In some cases, liquid nitrogen may be applied to the affected areas to freeze and remove keratin plugs, improving the skin's appearance.

📢 Important Advisory for Patients Considering Cosmetic/Medical Procedures

Dear Valued Patients,

We believe in providing you with the best care and guidance as you consider cosmetic procedures to enhance your well-being. It is crucial for us to ensure that you are well-informed and understand the nuances of these procedures, including their limitations and potential risks. Please take a moment to read and absorb the following points:

No Guaranteed Outcomes: It is essential to comprehend that no medical treatment or surgery can be guaranteed to result in absolute benefits or complete recovery. We want to emphasize that there are no guarantees of being "cured" or achieving specific outcomes.

Informed Decision Making: Prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedure, we encourage you to educate yourself about the procedure's details, potential risks, and anticipated outcomes. This empowers you to make informed decisions aligned with your personal goals and expectations.

Risk Considerations: No procedure is entirely risk-free. All medical interventions, including cosmetic procedures, carry inherent risks. Understanding and accepting these risks is a vital part of your journey towards achieving your desired results.

Doctor's Skill and Competence: We assure you that our team possesses the necessary expertise and competence in their respective fields. We commit to applying our skills with reasonable care and competence to ensure your safety and well-being.

Timing and Emotional Well-being: Optimal results from cosmetic procedures can be influenced by emotional factors. We recommend considering the timing of your procedure, especially in relation to major life events such as relocation, job changes, bereavement, relationship changes, or the arrival of children. Emotional stability contributes positively to your overall experience.

Your health and satisfaction are our top priorities. By acknowledging these points, you are taking an active role in your journey towards self-enhancement. If you have any questions or concerns, our dedicated team is here to provide you with the guidance you need.

Thank you for trusting us with your care.

How many sessions do I require?

The healthier your skin/hair are when starting out, the easier it will take the treatment. The sessions must be spaced to allow adequate healing in between. Skin/Hair that are healthy enough to regenerate fairly quickly will be able to endure more sessions of a treatment in a shorter period of time.

While these aren’t the only factors involved, they are the most common. Don’t be surprised, however, if your doctor mentions another situation that could impact the length and/or number of sessions you may require. Every person is different, and your circumstances will be unique only to YOU.
