Treatment for Keratosis Pilaris
Keratosis pilaris is a skin condition in which the hair follicles become blocked with excess keratin destined to be used in hair formation. The follicles that become clogged redden and inflame causing bumps to develop. The papules of keratosis pilaris usually occur on the upper arms and thighs, but also appear on the face, back, and buttocks.
Keratosis pilaris (KP) is a genetic-hereditary disorder. One can inherit it from one or both parents, but it can also be a first generation development. KP stems from over-reproduction of keratinocytes, the cells that manufacture the protein keratin, an important skin component as a connective and protective tissue. Some researchers describe KP as one of a whole spectrum of disorders, rather than as an independent condition. In many cases, it is associated with other dermal conditions like eczema, or contact allergies.
KP is more prevalent among children and adolescents (up to 80%) and less common in adults (40%). It seems to improve after puberty, but in some cases it lingers almost all through life. Individuals with dry skin and eczema (skin disorder) tend to have more severe cases of keratosis pilaris. The condition improves during warm summer months and worsens during the winter; this is supposed to be caused by change in the humidity levels. Some doctors claim that the use of thicker clothing creates a bigger contact area with the skin, so the inflammation is due to friction.
A dermatologist diagnoses KP based on the appearance of the skin. He will look for the signs of keratosis pilaris, which are papules that typically appear on the upper arms and thighs, and sometimes on the back, face, and buttocks. Papules re-form after they have been removed.
Thus far, physicians have not developed curative treatments for KP. Gently rubbing off the top layer of skin with a loofah sponge flattens the papules. Fruit acid creams are sometimes effective in unplugging the follicles.
The condition cannot be prevented because its underlying cause is genetic. However, very gentle rubbing with a loofah sponge and periodically applying fruit acid creams to keep the follicle openings clear can improve appearance.
The only lotion that actually works wanders with KP is BIOSKINTREATMENT. Many people find keratosis pilaris bumps aesthetically unappealing and therefore look for treatment. Occasionally, they may happen to get infected because of scratchy tight-fitting clothing or abrasive self-therapy, in which case treatment of the disease is necessary. A significant inflammatory constituent may be present and may be relieved with topical steroid therapy. Treatment of the tiny horny papules can be tricky because they are resistant to most modes of therapy.
Treatment options for keratosis pilaris focus on exfoliating or softening the skin to reduce keratin clogged pores. Treatment originally begins with adherence to non-pharmacologic method and compliance with daily living functions that will not deteriorate the condition. An important first treatment step is to use a gentle cleansing agent with light abrasive properties, often termed scrub, but one that keeps moisture (for sensitive skin). The goal is to clean and open the pores of the skin without over drying. Other measures to avoid excessive dryness include taking lukewarm, brief showers and using a humidifier, particularly during the winter months when low humidity dries out the skin.
BIOSKINTREATMENT softens coarse and dry skin, gets rid of excessive keratin and thus unclogs pores. It is also anti-inflammatory, controls the production of keratin and while it helps to attract water molecules when first applied. It also restores the skin's capacity to hold in water by speeding up the production of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans from inside the deep layers of the skin. BIOSKINCARE™ should be applied to the affected area twice a day for smooth skin.
BIOSKINTREATMENT LOTION clears skin of keratin bumps and regenerates healthy skin
The product is made with the same base as BIOSKINCARE plus Salix Nigra (Willow) Extract and Amorphophallus Konjac Root Powder for a more potent keratolytic effect that cleans the excess horny material of the skin by degrading keratin plugs and dissolving debris, damaged, abnormal and necrotic tissues. It decongests the skin as the enzymes in the snail serum and the natural salicylic acid in willow bark extract help to 'digest' all damaged structures into their amino-acid and other components, which also favors the regeneration of all the structural components of healthy skin.
It leaves your skin smooth, refreshed, soft and with use over a period of time it takes away keratosis pilaris, actinic keratosis scales, controls acne and reduces and even vanishes all types of skin blemishes: razor nicks and burns, roughness, blisters, scrapes, cuts, and the list can go on and on...

Ultra exfoliate rough scars and dull skin with BIOSKINEXFOL
Home microdermabrasion cream. Contains the same natural ingredients in BIOSKINTREATMENT but infused with micro-crystals so that you may rub it with your finger tips to remove old, hard, and tough scars or stretch marks by a physical breakdown of the scar tissues. Best also for oily skin and aged skin, actinic keratosis scales and pitted acne scars. Not for keloids and not if your skin is still fragile (use BIOSKINTREATMENT for a few months first to strengthen your skin). The compounded action of the physical abrasion and the enzymes in the cream liquefy damaged proteins more thoroughly helping to release amino-acids to aid in rebuilding damaged tissues quickly. Results are not only immediate, but compound over time and do not trigger inflamm-aging of delicate skin tissues.

Biological Skin Treatment Ingredient
Our products contain a biological serum created by a living creature. It is packed with enzymes, coenzymes, glycoproteins, glycosaminoglycans (hyaluronic acid), proteoglycans, peptides and oligoelements that (a) dissolve keratin plugs that obstruct the hair follicles and cause hyperkeratosis or acne and damaged and dysfunctional tissues, (b) regenerate healthy skin by promoting the proliferation of fibroblasts and supporting microcirculation in capillaries, (c) scavenge oxygen radicals and the damaging effects of excessive solar radiation and (c) keep microbes in check by the action of antimicrobial peptides secreted on the skin and within the hair follicles.
It keeps the skin moisturized, prevents skin infection, repairs wounds, promotes scarless healing, and renews the skin.
The collection of the biological ingredient in our products is done by using a humanely method that inflicts no damage upon the little creatures from which we gather the biological compound that can not possible be replicated in even the most sophisticated laboratory.

Skin Treatment Products
A deeply moisturizing and pure natural skin care cream that dissolves keratin plugs and debris and unblocks clogged pores allowing for the outflow of sebum to the surface where it lubricates and protects the skin instead of causing injuries to the cells lining the follicles and an inflammatory reaction of the body to repair the damage. Triggers the rebuilding of damaged and dead tissues and restores the capacity of the skin to hold in water from within. Rrestores the lipid wall of our skin thereby impeding the penetration of allergens and toxins. It induces the production of antimicrobial peptides on the surface of the skin and within the skin follicles contributing to control microrganisms. Signals the body it is being taken care of and does not need to fire its immune responses and overly react to minor injuries thus avoiding the loss of tissues that characterizes deep scars. Avoids scarring and diminishes scars from accidents, surgery, stretch marks, hypertrophic and keloid scars, by the breakdown of abnormal, dysfunctional and damaged tissues into their amino acid components while stimulating their replacement with new healthy skin structures. Vanishes redness and dryness, relieves eczema and dermatitis, reduces psoriasis scales and most skin blemishes. Repairs skin damaged by glycolic peeling and other chemical peels, dermabrasion or laser resurfacing. By strengthening the skin it relieves the uncomfortable side effects of retinoic drugs such as Accutane that thin the skin. Reduces and heals skin fragility and is a potent antioxidant thus helping to reduce the damaging effects on the dermis of sun burns and too much exposure to solar radiation. It also helps to heal blisters, bruises, wounds, and the consequences on the skin of ionizing radiotherapy or radiodermatitis. 50 gram (1.76 oz) jar = $60.
