Actinic Keratosis

Actinic keratosis is a skin condition characterized by rough bumps that are scattered in different areas of the body. These rough bumps are generally prominent in the upper arms, buttocks and legs.

Individuals with keratosis pilaris, usually feel tan or pink-colored bumps on their skin surface which can sometimes become irritated and inflamed resulting in a strong resemblance to acne. While keratosis pilaris is a harmless skin condition, it can be embarrassing for an individual to expose their skin during summer on the beach or at the pool.

Keratin, a protein found on the surface of skin, hair and nails is the major cause of keratosis pilaris. When too much keratin is produced it accumulates and forms plugs around hair follicles. When these plugs become inflamed they develop a tan or red color and itch when the skin is very dry. These plugs are usually not painful, however they can become painful when symptoms worsen during the winter season because the humidity levels are low and skin can become very dry.

Frequently asked questions?

What are the treatment options to reduce the appearance of Keratosis Pilaris?

Almost all cases of keratosis pilaris respond to moisture therapy, manual and chemical exfoliation. Manual exfoliation includes the daily use of loofa during showers or a professional Microdermabrasion treatment twice a month.
Mild fruit acid peels also help with the appearance of Keratosis Pilaris.

Will the condition go away completely?

Significant improvement can be seen with a series of 4-6 treatment, however to maintain the results follow up treatments are required.

Which individuals are most affected by Keratosis Pilaris?

Irrespective of ethnic background or color anyone can be affected by this skin condition. This is more commonly seen in people with dry skin. Taking very hot showers worsens the appearance as it strips the skin of natural oils.

What home care options are available to maintain Keratosis Pilaris?

Combing home care with the professional treatments helps to manage the appearance of keratosis pilaris. At Laser Genesis Skin Clinic we recommend daily use of PCA Dry Skin Relief Bar with loofa in the shower.
