Laser hair removal overcoming an IN-growing problem
One of the most bothersome things on the body are ingrown hairs. While there are worse skin care problems out there, this can be an unsightly and painful hassle for both men and women. Medically termed pseudofolliculitis barbae , this skin condition can also be known as razor bumps.

So what exactly are ingrown hairs?

Ingrown hairs develop in several ways. The hair being broken off short with a sharp tip can cause ingrown hairs.
Do hair removal methods cause ingrown hair?

Subject to the skin and hair type, ingrown hair can be caused with different types of removal methods.
- Depilatories- dissolve the hair using chemicals instead of it breaking or being pulled from the root. One of the least likely temporary hair removal methods to cause ingrown hair.
- Shaving- the hair is removed at or just below the skin with the blunt cut of the razor. Ingrown hair is most likely to be cause by this method.
- Tweezing- distortion of the hair follicle is caused as the tweezer pulls the hair from the root. The angle of growth is consequently improper, cause ingrown hair.
- Waxing- distortion of the hair growth also occurs as hair is pulled from the root.
- Electrolysis- a metal probe is inserted into the hair follicle, followed by a mild electronic current killing the hair. The results of this method are varying, but eliminates ingrown hair if successful.
 Laser Hair Removal- destroys the hair follicles by using laser lights, permanently reducing hair growth. Successful procedures will overcome ingrown hair.
Although there are various treatments available for the removal of unwanted hair, traditional techniques such as shaving, plucking, waxing and depilatory creams often lead to annoying rashes and ingrown hairs. They are also painful and worst of all, the results are only temporary.

Effective Laser Hair Removal technology allows for the safe removal of unwanted hair, eliminating ingrown hairs and leaving a smooth and flawless finish. Using IPL and Laser Hair Removal technologies, optimal wavelengths of light energy are gently delivered to both the hair shaft and follicle in pulses, through a delicate, computer-controlled hand piece. Effectively, the source of the unwanted hair growth problem is targeted and treated, therefore allowing for permanent results.
