How To Get Rid Of Ingrown Hairs?
Laser therapy is the best way to remove ingrown hairs. The best-ingrown hair treatment is laser hair removal. Laser hair removal uses a laser beam to reach the hair follicle. The melanin or pigment absorbs the light in the hair. The laser energy is converted to heat, which destroys the hair follicle that produces the hair. This damage stops or delays future hair from growing out of the hair follicle. Multiple laser treatments are required for more permanent hair removal.
When you damage the hair follicles, there is less chance for the hair to regrow, thus eliminating the problem of the ingrown hair growing out and curving back into the skin.
After about three laser sessions, you should experience fewer ingrown hairs and fewer razer bumps.

Repeated treatments are necessary because your hair grows in cycles, and laser hair removal works best with hair follicles in the new growth stage.
Laser hair removal on your face isn’t permanent but lasts a very long time. Some clients have seen no hair returning for over ten years! Hair growth on the body is called androgenic hair. Hair growth rate varies from each body part, with head hair growing the fastest at about 1 inch per month or .5mm per day.
Hair in the armpit grows at .27mm a day. Facial hair grows at about the same rate as head hair, and leg hair grows at .27mm daily. The difference in the rate of growth affects the times between sessions. The faster the hair growth, the shorter the intervals between sessions.
