by in Laser Hair Removal November 30, 2019

Have you been considering laser hair removal to combat those pesky ingrown hairs?

Laser hair removal is perhaps the most effective treatment when it comes to targeting your ingrown hairs at the root and destroying them.

What Is an Ingrown Hair?

You may have been curious about what is actually happening under your skin when you experience the irritation from an ingrown hair.

Basically, an ingrown hair occurs when you have a hair that curls and continues to grow under the skin.

This can cause an unsightly and painful bump.

Why Do We Get Ingrown Hairs?

Shaving can be a big cause for ingrown hairs.

The shaving process can lead your hair to grow in to the skin instead of growing outwards.

Why Do Ingrown Hairs Hurt?

When you experience ingrown hairs you may often also experience an infection which can cause the bump to become painful, irritated and sore to the touch.

Ingrown hairs can also promote itching, rashes and may produce puss within the ingrown hair bump.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is able to target your hair follicles at the base.

The laser technology is able to be fully absorbed in to the hair follicle in order to completely destroy it.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

Many patients will require a handful of laser hair removal treatments before your desired results are achieved.

Generally, eight appointments should do the trick.

Facial hair treatments may require more follow up appointments for maintenance.
