How to Prevent Ingrown Hair Associated with Hair Removal



As summer approaches, it is time to let your skin breathe and not shy away from cooling off because of ingrown hairs peeking from the skin’s surface. Smooth skin is a great delight to feel good about yourself and ingrown hairs must not restrict you from achieving it. To maintain smooth skin, it is important to make sure you hairless skin. To achieve hairless skin, many a times we take the easy route and shave it.  Even though shaving can give you smooth results temporarily, it can be extremely uncomfortable in a few days’ time and cause ingrown hairs. Ingrown hair not only make your skin seem rough, but can often be extremely painful. Most times ingrown hair occur due to shaving or waxing. Shaving not only makes your skin grow painful ingrown hairs but they also make you prone to cuts, rashes and bacterial infections.

To save ourselves from ingrown hairs and other consequences of shaving, let’s understand the science behind ingrown hair.  Ingrown hair occurs when the hair that’s supposed to grow outside the hair follicle re-enters the skin, forming a hoop with both its ends embedded in the skin. Ingrown hair leads to inflammation and itching, pus-filled bumps, bacterial infections, hyperpigmentation, and scarring. 

Ingrown hair can be prevented by exfoliating, lubricating, and moisturizing. However, if a person gets frequent ingrown hairs with shaving, the only permanent solution is to get a laser hair treatment done. Laser hair removal treatments are the perfect solution to achieve permanent results without any harmful consequences. The safe and certified treatment ensures all hair follicles present on the surface of the skin are destroyed permanently to reduce the chance of any hair growth. Additionally, laser treatment provides long-term hair reduction, which helps your skin stay smooth. 

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal 

Laser Hair Reduction treatment damages the hair follicles without causing any damage to the skin so that the hair growth from these follicles can be reduced. Laser Hair Treatment can be done on smaller areas such as upper lips and larger areas such as underarms, arms, legs, back, and bikini lines. This makes it a versatile treatment that saves money & time in the long run. Additionally, you don’t need to worry about any cuts or ingrown hair, or stripping your skin with hot or cold wax, as this procedure uses a pulse-activated laser to achieve smooth & hair-free skin.
