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-coloured 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 colour 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.

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.

I have been a Client of Anu’s for 15 years. All of her services are delivered with the upmost of safety and professionalism and the equipment is top quality. All facial skin treatments, laser hair removal and products have been very successful. I would be nervous going anywhere else and I highly recommend Laser Genesis.

I have been seeing Anu for my skin care for a little over a year now. Along, with being high knowledgeable, Anu spends a great deal of personal time and investment with her clients to ensure their skin care goals are met. One of her most amazing qualities is that she only recommends what she feels you need. Anu is extremely honest with the outcomes of all procedures and what expectations one should have for their unique skin type. I trust her a great deal and have always had a wonderful experience with her.
