What are Ingrown Hairs?

Ever wondered why there were little bumps after shaving or waxing? Those are known as ingrown hairs. Essentially, they are hairs that are growing back in a different direction, unable to break through the skin, therefore continuing to grow, curling under the skin. Ingrown hairs can happen to anyone; however, if you have coarse, thick hair, you are more likely to experience them. They can cause irritation, itchiness, and discolouration. Other than that, ingrown hairs are harmless; however, if they do not subside eventually, you should seek help from a professional, as it can cause hyperpigmentation, a bacterial infection (from scratching), or raised scars. As ingrown hairs are most common in the bikini area, consider Brazilian laser hair removal. Due to the lack of sight in these areas, it can be easy to remove hair incorrectly. 

How to Remove Ingrown Hairs?

When discovering an ingrown hair, your first instinct may be to pluck it right out. However, this can cause a break of skin, leading to a higher risk of infection. The best remedy to ingrown hairs is not shaving, waxing, or tweezing to allow the hair to grow independently. To help the hair make its way out of the skin, apply a warm compress for 10-15 minutes to open up the pores and use AHA or BHA exfoliators. If you must remove hair before it grows out, use a hair removal cream or electric razor that doesn’t touch the skin’s surface. If it doesn’t improve, make a visit to your doctor. In very few cases, they will create a small cut where the hair is and eliminate everything under the skin (pus, hair, fluid, etc.). They will use a sterile tool, making it safe to perform. 

How Laser Hair Removal Can Help Ingrown Hairs

After laser hair removal in Toronto, experience little to no ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal targets the root of the hair follicle hence the permanent removal aspect. It stunts hair growth, so you no longer need to worry about ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal is a long-term investment. By eliminating the hassle of spending time with at-home hair removal, you can take that time for other priorities.
