Can laser hair removal help with ingrown hairs? The answer is yes!
Ingrown hair occurs when a hair that’s been removed starts to grow back and curves into the skin. This usually happens after shaving, tweezing or waxing. Hair structure and direction of growth play a role in ingrown hair.
The most common cause of ingrown hairs is an improper shaving technique. Cutting hair very close to the skin creates a very sharp tip on the end of each of the hairs. Most of these hairs will grow back out without a problem. However, some hairs can curl back on themselves and grow into the skin.
An ingrown hair can occur anywhere on the body. Ingrown hairs commonly occur in areas where the skin is shaved or subject to a lot of friction, including:
– Beard / face
– Pubic area
Ingrown hairs can be painful and a nuisance. They typically affect people with thick, curly hair, and can become infected if left untreated.
This can lead to itching skin, rashes or razor burn.
Exfoliating the skin can and shaving in the direction the hair is growing can help prevent ingrowing hairs, however, if you want a permanent solution to rid yourself of this problem, Laser hair removal has the answer!
Laser Hair removal damages the hair follicle at a deep level, preventing hair from growing at all, which means that the hair will no longer grow.
Laser hair removal can be purely for cosmetic reasons to permanently remove unwanted hair, however, it also helps stop ingrown hairs.
One of my customers had very painful ingrown hairs in her groin area, causing itching, red lumps and a little scarring from squeezing. She came to Lancashire Laser Clinic purely to rid herself of unwanted hair growth on her legs and Hollywood area and was amazed to know that not only would the laser treatment permanently stop her hair, but it would mean no more pesky ingrown hairs!
