Keratosis Pilaris (Bumpy arm)

Rough bumpy skin often found on the back of the upper arms and thighs. Many people suffer from the benign skin disorder at some point in their lives as it is neither curable or preventable. It is, however, treatable.

Causes

This common skin condition is caused by overproduction and build-up of keratin, which clogs the tiny hair follicles, resulting in a rough and bumpy skin surface on the arm or thigh. Often referred to as chicken skin, this can also be caused by allergies to things such as gluten, as well as a lack of essential fatty acids in your diet. People with keratosis pilaris tend to have dry skin, suffer from atopic dermatitis or from other rare dermatologic syndromes.

How to treat

Keratosis pilaris?

Keratosis Pilaris treatment is super easy, but maintenance is key for long term results! Treatments include chemical peels and dermaplaning to remove dead skin cells, lasers and daily exfoliation following your bath or shower.
