How to help improve the appearance of Keratosis Pilaris or ‘chicken skin’

Keratosis Pilaris

Ever wondered what the bumps on the back of your arms are called? ‘Keratosis Pilaris’ is their technical name. These tiny little bumps that look like goose bumps form when too much keratin builds up in the skin’s hair follicles. This gives skin a bumpy texture as it blocks the pore where the hair would normally appear. They can also look red in appearance.

How can Microdermabrasion help?

Microdermabrasion uses thousands of tiny exfoliating crystals to knock off dead skin cells and unblock pores thus helping to remove the build up of keratin. The hair follicle is cleared of debris leaving skin smooth and clear. Book yourself a course of treatments now.

What else can MD treat?

Razor bumps

In a similar way, exfoliation with microdermabrasion can help with razor bumps. Microdermabasion removes layers of dead skin, this helps to reduce the likeliness that hairs will get trapped and cause razor bumps because the skin will have fewer excess layers. It’s important to start exfoliating before you shave, and then do it regularly between shaves too, but try not to do them on the same day. Alternatively, a monthly Microdermabrasion treatment is the perfect way to eliminate dead skin build up and prevent the bumps from forming. The added benefit of Microdermabrasion is that it will smooth and rejuvenate your skin as well as reduce scarring, which is perfect if you regularly suffer from razor bumps as they can scar the skin over time.

Acne

Microdermabrasion treatments are a popular choice for people searching for an acne solution. It will also help to reduce the appearance of acne scarring. Surveys suggest that 95% of adolescents and adults suffer from acne problems. SkinBase MD safely and effectively reduces acne scarring by exfoliating the layers of skin. It will calm red and uneven skin tone, leaving smooth, healthy-looking skin.

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks can knock self-esteem – leaving those with them feeling they want to cover up. SkinBase MD treatments work by exfoliating skin layer by layer and increasing blood flow to the area. SkinBase™ microdermabrasion treatment helps to blend the stretch marks with the surrounding area so they become significantly less visible.
