ingrown hairThere are so many incredible benefits of laser hair removal that it’s no wonder it is one of the most common aesthetic services performed and so highly regarded by anyone who has gone through the recommended number of treatments to achieve the optimal result: smooth, hair-free skin.

How to treat an Ingrown Hair

If you are prone to ingrown hairs, laser hair removal is the perfect treatment for you. An ingrown hair is one that grows backward into the skin, rather than rising up out of it like hair follicles should do.

Sometimes this happens because there are dead skin cells clogging a hair follicle, which then affect the direction in which the hair grows. But more often than not, this common condition happens after blunt methods of hair removal, such as shaving, waxing or tweezing. Ingrown hairs cause inflammation, redness or hyperpigmentation, itchiness and sometimes a visible bump at the site of the ingrown. If you are unlucky enough to develop said bump, it is usually small and solid and can be quite painful. These small, solid bumps are known as papules. Ingrown hairs can also show themselves as blisters filled with pus, otherwise known as pustules.

Although ingrowns improve on their own with time and have no immediate harm or danger, most people would obviously prefer not to have them at all, especially if they cause pain and discomfort and are noticeable to others. Furthermore, if you do not address the issue and continue to get them again and again, there are complications that could occur down the road. You may get a bacterial infection from scratching the skin where the ingrown is located, experience skin darkening or chronic razor bumps and rashes, or even develop permanent scarring known as keloids.

Laser Hair Removal to remove a Deep Ingrown Hair

The solution? Either don’t remove the hair, or seek out a different method of hair removal that does not cause ingrown hair. Laser hair removal has the ability to remove a deep ingrown hair because it targets the root of the hair follicle. At Fox Vein & Laser Experts, our Miami laser hair removal technicians use the GentleMax Pro, one of the most gentle and effective devices on the market. The device works by transferring a burst of laser energy that pierces right into the hair follicle, which absorbs the light and breaks down. During each treatment, the follicle breaks down further and further until it no longer can produce hair.

Shaving, waxing and tweezing do not have the ability to reach that far down into the hair follicle to get to the root, so there is no permanency and the root is left under the skin. This allows the hair to continue to grow, sometimes in unnatural directions, which then results in ingrown hairs.

There is no downtime needed after each session, and because of the level of power emitted by the laser, fewer treatments are needed.
