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 light is absorbed by the melanin or pigment in the hair. The laser energy is converted to heat, which destroy 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, and thus eliminate the problem of the ingrown hair growing out and curving back into the skin.
After about 3 laser sessions, you should experience less ingrown hairs and less razer bumps.
