Get rid of ingrown hair and never again feel the irritation and discomfort caused by shaving. In fact, when you use laser hair removal to get rid of facial hair, you will experience permanent hair removal, giving you the freedom from not just ingrown hair but also the razor burns and irritation associated with it.
Ingrown hair is a nuisance experienced by more than half of African American men and about 20 percent of Caucasians. However, ingrown hair affects men and women, as well as many areas of the body including the bikini, face and neck. Women of all backgrounds experience it on any part of the body where thick, curly hair appears. It is common for women to want to get rid of ingrown hair in the pubic area as well as the armpits.
To get rid of ingrown hair, a laser is used to concentrate heat energy at the small blood vessel that feeds the hair. By discontinuing blood flow to the follicle, we are able to permanently get rid of ingrown hair and give our patients relief from this irritating condition.
To achieve permanent results, multiple laser treatments are required. Most commonly, 6-8 treatments are needed, each spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Upon completion of the ingrown hair treatment program, the vast majority of patients see a permanent removal of 95% of the unwanted hair.
If you are wondering about the cost of laser hair removal, you’ll be relieved to know that a lifetime of shaving, waxing, and plucking is far more costly than a course of laser treatment.
