Pre Laser Treatment Checklist for Laser hair removal
Can Laser Hair Removal help with ingrown hairs?
Ingrown hair is a common skin concern after shaving and tweezing, especially for wavy and curly hair. If your hair regrows in an indirect path, it can become trapped below cells in the epidermis. The cells respond with an inflammatory response to remove the displaced hair, causing painful redness and swelling like a pimple. Laser Hair Removal is an excellent alternative to shaving and tweezing because it targets the hair follicle at the root. For areas that have been treated with Laser Hair Removal, hair follicles are less active, and ingrown hairs are much less likely to occur. Laser Hair Removal is the best hair removal treatment for sensitive skin types.
