Follicular unit extraction for keratosis pilaris
11 months ago
Hi, I have tried just about everything to treat my keratosis pilaris, with lasting results only recently. I started receiving electrolysis which really helped, I guess because now there is no hair for the keratin to block? But electrolysis takes so long (like 10 seconds per hair) and maybe about 1/2 the hairs treated disappeared for good. The scarring with body hair FUE looks nonexistent, and the machine looks like it moves fast. Is FUE for keratosis pilaris/other follicle disorders possible?

Electrolysis may be slow but if it works in your case there is nothing wrong with it. FUE will cause scarring.
This is a benign condition. The use of punch removal is possible, but I would rather you contact a dermatologist for this condition
