Unsightly and embarrassing, ingrown hairs can quickly become a real inferno. Whether waxed or shaved, they appear on the legs, the bikini line for women and the beard for men. Laser hair removal will be a particularly convincing way to say "Bye Bye" to them!
Ingrown hairs, what's that?
Ingrown hairs are hairs that do not have the strength to pierce the dermis when they come out of their follicle. This is quite common when the skin is too thick or if the orifice is blocked. The hairs then have difficulty following a normal route and continue to grow under the skin. These hairs can appear all over the body but tend to appear on the legs, bikini line for women and face and neck for men.
These are generally the areas most subject to hair removal or rubbing on your clothes. The skin thickens and pain, irritation and itching may occur. It is often advisable to moisturise the skin well and use exfoliating creams so that the hairs come out. But it is without counting on the technique of laser hair removal which will be able to get rid of these disturbing imperfections!
Opt for laser hair removal, the definitive hair removal!
Laser hair removal is actually permanent hair removal. And the latter is not a harmless act. Several recommendations are recommended before embarking on it. For those who wish to perform permanent hair removal, it is advisable to wait until the hair system is mature (no down). That is to say between 20 and 25 years old for women and 40 years old for men. Adolescence is not the best time to perform a definitive hair removal because the hair is not yet mature.
Permanent hair removal is intended for a certain type of hair and skin. It is essential to make an appointment beforehand with a "laserist" doctor before starting any operation on your hair. If the hair eradication technique consists in targeting the melanin contained in the hair, it is necessary that your hair system is visible. Ideally, you should not be tanned and should not have applied a self-tanner so that your skin tone is clearly distinct from the colour of your hair. Otherwise, there may be a risk of burns.
Please note that light, blond or white hairs cannot be treated with laser surgery. In this case, it will be necessary to turn to electrolytic hair removal.
It is desirable that laser hair removal be spread out over a year to be sure to eradicate all hair. In fact, hair has an average lifespan of 4 months. During the first session, some may be "asleep" and not be treated. Sessions every 6 to 8 weeks will help to complete the hair cycle.
In general, it will take a good year of treatment for the full program and absolutely avoid sun exposure during this period.
It's up to you to put an end to these annoying ingrown hairs!
