Ingrown hairs are a painful, inconvenient fact for millions of people.  When a hair is ingrown, it’s trapped under the skin’s surface, where an unattractive bump forms.  Ingrown hairs may also provoke infections, so they can be somewhat serious.

You’ll find ingrown hairs primarily on the underarms, legs, bikini line and face.  Why?  Because these are places men and women remove their hair by shaving.

Remedies for ingrown hairs abound, with people trying everything from special razors to exfoliators to rid themselves of ingrown hairs.

But there’s good news – laser hair removal.  This post shares how laser hair removal helps ingrown hairs.  If you’re one of the many people prone to them, read on!

Kill the Follicle

The laser used in laser hair removal (there are, in fact, several which deal with different skin/hair color combinations) targets pigment.  Bypassing the skin, the laser seeks out the pigment in the hair follicle and kills it.

A series of laser hair removal treatments is performed, with a reduction in follicles each time the laser passes over the treatment area.

Facial hair is a little more difficult, as it’s governed by hormones, but maintenance treatments will keep ingrown hairs from shaving at bay.

For other parts of the body, your laser hair removal technician will treat only those areas which are in the hair growth cycle, which is the best time to kill the follicle.

And the great news about laser hair removal treatment is that 75 – 90% of the follicles in the area treated will eventually die, weakening with each treatment.

Laser hair removal treatment also treats the discoloration caused by ingrown hairs, so it’s almost like getting a fresh start.

Freedom from Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs can be beaten and laser hair removal is proven to be the most effective method to get it done.

If you’ve been wasting your time and money on treatments that get few results, if any, then it’s time to explore what laser hair removal can do for you.

When you come to Ethos Spa, Skin & Laser Center for a consultation about this therapy, you’ll sit down with a skilled, licensed technician who will counsel you as to the best type of laser for your hair/skin combination.  Then, you’ll discuss a treatment schedule, session spacing and the number of treatments.

Everyone’s hair growth is different.  Some is heavier.  Some grows more quickly.  So, everyone who comes to see us receives personalized attention to achieve the best possible laser hair removal results.
