Answer

In-office, physician-performed treatments such as chemical peels; dermabrasion; microdermabrasion; photodynamic therapy; and blue-light, laser, and intense pulsed light devices may be helpful as adjunctive treatment. Because keratosis pilaris has no cure and no universally effective treatment is available, proceed with caution using a combination of in-office treatments and a physician-directed home maintenance skin care routine.
