Keratosis Pilaris

Keratosis Pilaris is a condition that causes dry and rough skin with numerous small red bumps around hair follicles on the upper arms, thighs, buttocks and cheeks with a fine, sandpaper-like texture similar in appearance to goosebumps or chicken skin. Commonly seen in children and adolescents, the condition can occur at any age, with females more likely to be affected. It is caused by a build-up of keratin (the skin’s protective protein shield) that blocks the opening of the hair follicle, and is usually associated with very dry skin or atopic dermatitis, and can also be genetics well as diet related. The condition is generally not curable but can be managed with ongoing treatments and skincare products. Dry or dehydrated skin tends to make the condition worse, hence it is important to maintain skin moisture.

Renajo Skin Clinic follows a unique Three Step holistic approach:

  • Step 1 – We invest significant time in your initial skin consultation to listen and fully understand your skin concerns, identify the contributing factors, your needs and goals.
  • Step 2 – Next is an in-depth diagnostic assessment of your skin at the deeper levels which will reveal its true condition and health, and expose any hidden issues before they come to the surface.
  • Step 3 – We present you with honest feedback, a range of appropriate treatment options, prescriptive skincare specific to your skin’s needs, and explain the results you can expect. We also guide you on improving and maintaining your results through diet and nutrition.

On their own, all of our treatments deliver effective results. When combined in a complementary multi-treatment program (Super-Charged Combination Therapy), they work at different levels within your skin to deliver visibly superior, more effective, targeted and longer-lasting results.

All treatments are performed by a fully-qualified and paramedically-trained skin clinician who will customise a treatment plan to suit your needs. See Testimonials for what others have to say about Renajo.
