Pseudofolliculitis barbae, causes and treatments
WHAT ARE INGROWN HAIRS?
Ingrown hairs are a common condition for anywhere on the body where the hair has been shaved, or where the hair is curly, resulting in hair growth beneath or back into the skin. This irregular growth of the hair below the skin causes redness, soreness, inflammation, and sometimes can even lead to scarring. The condition occurs by itself in over 60% of African American men and people with curly hair.
HOW TO AVOID INGROWN HAIRS?
One method to prevent ingrown hairs includes not shaving, and allowing the hair to grow long. However, this is not always desirable or an option for everyone. Using electric razors may also prevent against ingrown hairs as these razors do not get close enough to the skin, allow the hair to remain longer and slightly outside the skin.
HOW TO PERMANENTLY PREVENT INGROWN HAIRS
With advancements in technology we now have safe, and reliable options in diode laser machines. These professional machines target the root of our hair with concentrated beams of light. The resulting stimulus “damages” the hair and is unable to grow back.
This effective treatment has shown significant reduction in hair regrowth, when measured at 6, 9 and 12 months post treatment.
