Do you even find yourself squeezing the painful spot hoping the hair will find a way to grow out? You’ll be glad to hear that there is a solution called laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is the number 1 solution to prevent ingrown hairs and restore a smooth and silky skin.
How ingrown hairs form?
Ingrown hairs, are simply hairs that have curled round and grown back into the skin. Especially after they’ve been shaved or cut. Anyone can get them, but they do tend to be more of a problem for people with curly or coarse hair.
For women, ingrown hairs are most common on the legs, pubic area and armpits and sometimes, particularly in darker skin types, on the face. While they’re not a serious health problem, the spots can become itchy, painful and even infected. But even if the problem does eventually go away on its own, the affected area of skin can be left a darker colour and scarred.
Removing hair using the wrong technique such as waxing, shaving or epilating; may result in the new hair growing in its place sideways or curl back down.
As a result the pores 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.
Will laser hair removal prevent ingrowing hair?
Laser hair removal is one of the most effective ways of treating and preventing ingrown
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. It’s safe, virtually painless and can be permanent! It works by emitting short pulses of light in to the hair follicle, causing it to stop growing hair and to close.
