Ingrown hair occurs when a shaved or waxed piece of hair begins to grow back under the skin. Instead of poking up and out of the skin, the hair grows at an angle and pushes its way just under the skin. This can cause bumps, irritation, and infection. These bumps can be painful and unsightly, and make it difficult to shave or wax the area again. Luckily, Laser Touch Medical Clinic offers safe, non-surgical ways to correct ingrown hairs.
Ingrown hairs tend to grow wherever people shave or wax—the face for men and the legs, underarms, and bikini area for women. While an infection resulting from an ingrown hair may be treated with antibiotics, the most effective way to eliminate and prevent ingrown hairs is with laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is a dream come true for those who wish to remove hair from any area of the body without the hassle and pain of daily or weekly treatments and without the threat of ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal treatments offer the longest-lasting and most visually appealing results. Although no hair removal technique lasts forever, there is permanent hair reduction for this FDA-approved technology. Current ingrown hairs will be dissolved, and new hair growth will be prevented, eliminating future ingrown hairs.
