Will doing a "facial" on the upper arms help keratosis pilaris go away?

In brief: Probably not

Keratosis pilaris is a common, benign condition.
Treatment may include: moisturizing lotions to soothe the skin and help it look better; skin creams that contain urea, lactic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, tretinoin, or vitamin d; steroid creams to reduce redness. Improvement often takes months and the bumps are likely to come back.
