INGROWN HAIRS ARE A COMMON PROBLEM FOR ANYONE THAT FREQUENTLY REMOVES THICK HAIR GROWTH ON THE FACE OR BODY.
These are hairs that have curled and grown back into the skin. They usually appear as a raised, red bump and can be painful and itchy – some can be filled with pus and infection can occur in rarer cases.
TREATMENTS FOR INGROWN HAIRS
The long-term solution to preventing ingrown hairs is either stopping all hair removal method or switching to laser hair removal, to reduce the thickness and rate of hair growth.
If either of these options are not for you, Skinfit Studio have a few solutions in place to treat ingrown hairs. A salicylic acid-based wash (available upon consultation) is great to use to help remove dead skin cells that build up around the hair follicle, and prevent infection. If the condition still persists, a course of skin peels works great at not only reducing ingrown hair, but also improves any scarring in the area.
