Ingrown Hair Treatment and Removal in Houston, TX
PFB (Pseudofolliculitis Barbae, i.e. ingrown hairs, razor bumps or beard bumps) is an irritating condition that is commonly caused by shaving.
There are only a few ways to treat ingrown hair. Although growing hair out of skin does not cause any trouble, ingrown hairs, that curls around and grow back down into the skin can inflame or irritate the skin at times. Ingrown hairs can be a problem to any individual; however, it typically occurs in individuals with curly hair, who has darker skin. Usually, they possess a tanned skin starting from skin types IV through VI.
Individuals that have a high level of hormones, especially testosterone - the male hormone are also susceptible to getting ingrown hairs. The most common locations that get affected are;
- The legs
- Pubic region on females and in males
- Neck after shaving
Ingrown hair can affect men and women equally. The area affected will appear like that of a pimple, being raised and red in colour. It also carries a risk of getting infected.
Anyhow, laser treatments have been effective in treating ingrown hair. The laser beams selectively target the underlying hair and follicle, as well as melanin and hyperpigmentation surrounding the ingrown hair lesion. With the use of LightPod Aerolase lasers’ unique 650-microsecond pulse duration the energy finds it easier to pass through the skin quickly and do its job. It does not overheat the epidermal melanin during the treatment, and by having 50 to 500 times shorter pulse duration than of a traditional laser, the treatment has become more effective and available.
We also use Alma laser hair removal method. It gradually heats and damages the hair follicles and avoids any injury to the surrounding skin. Alma laser also carry the sweeping In-motion delivery technique to cover a wide area of skin. The skin is also cooled simultaneously to prevent burns.
