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.

Men

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.

 

Women

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.

  • How does laser hair removal for men work?
    As the name suggests, laser hair removal treatments involve the use of laser light technology. These lasers emit pulses of light energy into the skin to target the root and hair follicles. Once the root and follicle are destroyed, hair can no longer grow, and the result is permanent hair reduction
  • How many sessions do I need?
    Depending on the size of the area, most clients need multiple hair-removal sessions to see the best results. That’s because hair, as it grows, goes through three different stages. The laser is only effective on hair that’s in the growth phase, and individual hairs are always in different phases. Hair must be in the active growth stage for laser hair removal to be effective. With multiple treatments spread out over weeks, the laser can capture every hair in the growth phase.
  • Is laser hair removal permanent?
    Everyone’s body reacts differently to laser treatments. Some people see permanent results, while others only see temporary hair reduction. Treatment is most effective on people with light skin and dark hair. It is more challenging to eliminate hair growth on people with fair skin and light hair, as well as from people with a dark skin tone and dark hair. Once treatment sessions are complete, some people will see permanent hair loss. Others may need to return for a touch-up treatment in a year or two. The success of the procedure depends upon the individual and how many treatments they have.
  • What to do before and after laser hair removal?
    If you’re ready to get laser hair removal, start by consulting with a certified and licensed professional. Consultations with Laser by Jana Bay are entirely free and can be scheduled online or overthe phone. During your initial consultation, your laser technician will explain what the procedure entails and examine the area and estimate how many sessions you’ll need. General recommendations before the procedure: • Shave the hair in the desired area the day before laser epilation • There should be no deodorant in the armpit area. • Do not sunbath 2 weeks before • For 2-3 weeks, do not use wax, epilator, sugaring
  • What to expect after treatment?
    After treatment, it’s common to experience some slight discomfort. Many people see redness and swelling in the area, especially within the first few hours after treatment. But what you do afterward is just as important as what you do to prepare. General recommendations after the procedure: • Do not sunbath for 2 weeks after the procedure • In the first 2-3 days, you should not overheat in the bath or sauna • Do not use alcohol body lotions for the first day • Mild exfoliation 6 days after the procedure • Wear loose clothing so that you don’t sweat in the treated area • For the first 48 hours after a session, avoid working out
