Ingrown hair is a skin condition in which a hair that’s been removed curls around and begins to grow back into the skin. These hairs generally appear in areas that are shaved or waxed, such as the beard, legs or pubic area, and are most common in people with curly or coarse hair.
While ingrown hairs and the raised red spots they create can be very itchy, uncomfortable and embarrassing, they often go away by themselves. But in some cases they become infected and turn into painful pus-filled sores. These can permanently darken or even scar the skin, especially if you’ve scratched or picked at them. When this occurs seeking treatment for ingrown hairs is advised.
One of the best treatments for ingrown hairs is laser hair removal. By targeting specific areas of the body with a specialised laser, this treatment weakens the hair follicles and reduces their ability to produce hairs long term. Laser hair removal is a fast, effective and safe treatment to permanently removing ingrown hairs and stop them from coming back. It works best on dark, coarse hair, but we can successfully treat those with light or blonde hair as well.
