KERATOSIS PILARIS – KP

KEY MANAGEMENT AREAS

  • INFLAMMATION
  • SKIN TEXTURE
  • SCAR TISSUE
  • PIHP
  • REDNESS
  • MATIFICATION

IN CLINIC PROTOCOLS
Ideally, the skin should initially be deep cleansed with steam, with any impurities extracted. Thereafter, the skin needs to be treated every month with a combination of  Peels and Microneedling with Fusion ampoule MESOMA TRIX to assist in reducing redness and scarring. All clinic treatments are carefully administered to ensure decongesting, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory outcomes. If the area has a lot of hair, a hair removal laser is an option.

THE PROBLEM:
Keratosis Pilaris (KP for short) results from the buildup of keratin – a hard protein that protects skin from harmful substances and infection. It is a common, harmless skin condition that causes dry, rough patches and small bumps, usually found on the upper arms, thighs,  cheeks or buttocks. The bumps don’t hurt or itch, but may feel rough and look unsightly It.develops when keratin forms a scaly plug that blocks the opening of the hair follicle.

THE SOLUTION:
The best way to get to the root of the problem is to use an extremely gentle, leave-on exfoliant. An ingredient like salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid, or BHA) is an amazing multi-tasking ingredient because it gets beyond skin’s surface to exfoliate inside the pore, removing the hard clog that causes the problem.

THE CAUSE:
This condition develops when the skin produces too much of a protein called keratin, which can block hair follicles and cause bumps to develop. The bumps are usually on the arms, thighs, cheeks and buttocks. They’re white, sometimes red and typically don’t hurt or itch.

LIFESTYLE TIPS:
Make sure everything you do to take care of your skin is gentle. Avoid abrasive scrubs, loofahs, and cleansing brushes with stiff bristles. They damage skin and will make skin redder, not better. KP is not the result of dirty skin, so you cannot scrub it away. Use a gentle body wash with a washcloth, followed by a leave-on exfoliant. It’s extremely important to keep skin hydrated, but don’t use heavy, thick emollient products because they can clog pores. Rather, use lightweight skin-nourishing lotions, especially those that contain skin-restoring and skin-rejuvenating ingredients such as retinal. Retinal is well known for delivering amazing results by helping to normalize pore function.
