Ingrown Hairs … Say your Prayers!

Laser Away Your Ingrown Hairs!

Q: What is extremely common, never celebrated, curly and looks like a pimple?
A: Ingrown hairs!

Unfortunately, many persons are extremely prone to ingrown hairs which are usually the result of hair being cut or broken off, although distorted follicles can also cause ingrowns. As the hair grows back, it may come in on more of an angle than normal, causing it to miss the opening of the follicle, curl back around and start to grow backward into the skin. Ingrown hairs may lead to infection, which causes papules (raised red spots) that commonly occur when hairs become ingrown.

Ingrown hairs usually resemble acne and are characterised by raised, red bumps and occasionally pustules, or whiteheads.

Causes of ingrown hair include:

  • Oil stuck in the hair follicles
  • Dry skin
  • Coarse, curly, or stiff hair
  • Shaving too close, or shaving against the direction of hair growth
  • Any kind of temporary hair removal method including but not limited to waxing, electrolysis, shaving and/or tweezing.

Laser permanent hair reduction uses laser energy to destroy the hair follicles, preventing hair re-growth. When professionally performed, ingrown hairs will be eliminated. This works on the principle of exposing the area where hair reduction is desired to a series of very short pulses of concentrated laser energy. This laser energy is converted to heat energy absorbed by the hair at the base of the hair follicle, inhibiting the growing process and therefore helping to permanently reduce in-growing hairs in the treated zone.
