Will laser hair removal stop ingrowing hair? Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to get rid off of unwanted body and facial hair. But if you suffer from ingrowing hair, it will definitely be the most beneficial option for you. Laser hair removal is a great way to stop ingrowing hair.
How does ingrowing hair form?
Ingrowing hair is most common when you shave, wax or use other methods to remove hair. As either of these processes can result in swelling, therefore it may lead to irritation to your skin and result in pimples / cysts.
Removing hair using the wrong technique may result in the new hair growing in its place sideways or curl back down. As a result the pore can close over the hair which becomes trapped or ingrown. After this the skin’s natural reaction is to become inflamed and often very painful.
But how laser hair removal will stop ingrowing hair?
Laser hair removal is one of the most effective ways of stopping ingrowing hair. This is because the laser goes straight to root cause by destroying the follicle. Therefore it prevents hair growing and causing irritation to your skin.
Patients who have naturally curly hair are more prone to ingrowing hairs. This can be painful and uncomfortable. But as long as the hair has pigment the laser will be effective and will remove the discomfort caused by the inflammation.
If you have been suffering for a long time and ingrowing hairs have left you with scarring, medical skin peels and prescribed skincare can be a great way to restore your skin’s texture and natural colour.
