Facial hair alone can be a struggle. But when accompanied with other skin conditions such as acne or ingrowing hair it can really feel like a curse. Many patients visiting my laser hair removal and skin clinic in Oxford Circus; often present both conditions and unsure which one to treat first. Also can laser hair removal help their acne at the same time? Thankfully yes, laser hair removal can improve acne impressively. But why is that?
Can laser hair removal help acne?
Acne causes inflammation and irritation due to a build up of excess oil that blocks your pores. Typically oil accumulates faster on skin with thick facial hair. When you shave, pluck or wax this hair not only causes irritation but also it leaves the opening of your follicles close to your skin’s surface open for a few hours. During this time your skin is more prone to irritation and bacteria. And without appropriate care your follicles can even become infected.
Laser hair removal is definitely the number one method to effectively remove unwanted facial hair without causing any of the above side effects or irritation. Along with removing the hair you destroy the hair follicles, which seize to exist, therefore you also prevent bacteria blocking those pores and building up to cause inflamed spots.
Although it’s not a cure, but in many cases patients report a significant improvement in their acne after laser hair removal whether its on their face or body.
