Answer

Case reports in the literature have described effective keratosis pilaris treatment with modalities such as the 595-nm pulsed dye laser, intense pulsed light devices, and various other laser devices, including hair removal lasers. [13, 14] More expansive and larger-scale studies are required to assess the efficacy of potential laser therapies for this chronic, relapsing skin condition. [15]
