Why Laser Hair Removal is the Best Way to Get Rid of Ingrown Hairs?
Laser hair removal is the best and only real effective choice for getting rid of ingrown hairs quickly. This is because laser hair removal goes straight to the source of the problem, the root or hair follicle. The laser hits the follicle directly, burning away the follicle’s ability to produce hair.
Once the follicle can no longer produce hair, an affected area will begin to heal. It’s important to remember that the problem with ingrown hairs isn’t just the one-time production of hair that pierces back into your skin causing irritation. The real issue is that the hair will keep coming back and continuing to grow while stuck underneath the dermis.
A hair follicle is like a weed that will grow until you stop it. By using laser hair removal, you’re stopping the hair follicle from producing hair now and in the future. This will put an end to irritation, pain, infection, and further damage to your skin.
Laser hair removal has the advantage of being able to eliminate hair on many parts of the body. All that’s needed is a line of sight so that the laser can connect to the root.
Both men and women get ingrown hairs. The difference between the sexes is where ingrown hairs typically occur on the body. Here’s how gender affects ingrown hairs and laser hair removal.
Due to hormones in the body, men usually have more facial hair. Shaving and trimming facial hair is highly correlated with ingrown hairs. But, keeping facial hair short and groomed is not the only precursor for an irritation. Growing out a beard or mustache can also leave you with hairs that don’t want to cooperate.
Men who shave their chest and back are likely to see instances of ingrown hairs in these areas as well.
While ingrown hair on the face is less likely for women, it happens to the best of us. Typically, women tend to see ingrown hairs appear more on legs, underarms, and pubic areas.
For both men and women, wait a few minutes after shaving to do a thorough check of the area. Look for redness, bumps on the skin, or any sensitive spots. Always keep shaved areas clean and don’t forget to exfoliate to remove dead skin that builds up.
Many people have turned to waxing to prevent ingrown hairs. But, waxing only removes hair. It does not stop the hair from returning to cause more problems. Laser hair removal reduces hair growth in the treated area and thus stops further pain or unsightly scars.
