Laser Hair Removal for Ingrown Hairs

If you’ve got ingrown hairs, you know that they not only look bad, but they hurt too! These painful, tender, red, raised bumps are common on the face, scalp and body usually after shaving. Ingrown hairs can be mistaken for acne, lead to more severe skin problems like folliculitis (infection of the hair follicle) and they can also lead to permanent facial scarring. Darkened areas of skin, known as traumatic hyperpigmentation can take months (or longer) to resolve. And a more serious form of ingrown hairs called pseudofolliculitis barbae can lead to permanent raised or pitted scars in the beard and neck.

There are many over-the-counter products including shave creams that promise to reduce or even eliminate ingrown hairs, but for many of us, they just don’t work. However, there is one, proven way to eliminate painful, potentially scarring ingrown hairs once and for all: laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is safe for all skin types (colors) and can be performed anywhere on the body. It is the perfect treatment for this common, frustrating problem. Why shave day after day and risk serious skin infection and scarring when you can permanently get rid of your unwanted hair? Many of our patients who’ve experienced the scarring type of folliculitis find that once the hair is gone for good, their skin settles down and returns to a more normal appearance.

If you’re suffering with ingrown hairs and frustrated with the previous products and treatments that didn’t work for you in the past, consider laser hair removal. It truly is a miracle treatment that can keep this problem at bay for you permanently! It is safe and effective no matter where you’re bothered by ingrown hairs and no matter what skin type (color) you have.
