What is an ingrown hair?
An ingrown hair is produced when a strand does not completely erupt from the follicle, growing back on itself instead, under the skin. The condition appears most commonly in areas where the skin is shaved or waxed. Ingrown hairs tend to be more common in areas with coarse hairs, like the bikini area in women, and beard and neck in men. Individuals with thicker, curled hairs, such as African Americans, tend to have the highest rate of problems with ingrown hairs, particularly of the beard area. Rarely, an ingrown hair may also appear in other skin parts, such as the eyelid. Generally, an ingrown hair is medically harmless, yet it may become cosmetically disfiguring and lead to scarring, skin discoloration, skin infection, and rarely keloid scar formation.
Will laser hair removal get rid of the problem?
A laser treatment kills the hair follicle, so that it can no longer support hair growth. Following your session, the damage caused by the wayward follicle will heal naturally. Even if it had unfortunately become infected, a single session can kick start the healing process and you will see results almost immediately.
How does laser hair removal actually work?
Laser Hair Removal works by focusing high laser energy through the skin to the base of the hair follicle. The laser light is absorbed by the pigment in each hair follicle, and this causes the hair follicles to be progressively damaged so that the hair can no longer grow.
Why is it better than other methods?
Two words: PERMANENT ELIMINATION
Unlike other tradition hair removal means, laser renders each follicle sterile, making ingrowns nothing but a bad memory. During your first appointment, the treated strands instantly stops growing and will start to heal. No other hair removal method can produce this kind of effect.
Will the process hurt?
Not at all! In fact, it does away with painful other methods such as lancing, and because it does not break your skin, there is also no risk of infection. The beams easily pass through the skin quickly and into the follicle with minimal pain. The feeling is commonly referred to as a rubber band being flicked at the area.
