Laser hair removal clinics have seen an increase for the demand from the people experiencing ingrown hair. Why does ingrown hair occur? When hair grows into the skin after shaving or cutting it or when dead skin cells are blocking the hair to grow in a normal direction, a person will end up with a little bump on the skin. The problem eventually clears by itself. However, sometimes it gets aggravated, and makes it uncomfortable for the skin. Picking it or tweezing the hair out of the bump is tempting, but has a risk of inviting infection into the affected area that may even lead to folliculitis - inflammation around the hair caused by bacteria Staphylococcus aureus.
Laser hair removal can help the problem through disabling the hair growth permanently. The more contrast between the skin and the hair colour is - in other words, the darker pigment of the melanin in the root of the hair is compared to the skin tone - the better laser hair removal treatment will work.
