In brief: No

Typical treatments used to treat keratosis pillars include topical retinoids (retin a, tazorac, (tazarotene) and others) and exfoliating products, such as salicylic acid or alpha-hydroxy acid.
Your dermatologist can recommend treatment options after examining your skin. I know of no lasers that are reliably helpful to treat this condition.
