They can be painful, unsightly, and a nuisance to get rid of - which is why laser hair removal might be the answer for you!
For those who have been fortunate enough not to experience on in their lifetime, an ingrown hair is a strand of hair that grows back into the skin after shaving, tweezing or waxing.
Ingrown hairs can affect anyone, but they are easy to diagnose, and easy to prevent with the right hair removal practices. An ingrown hair is a hair that becomes trapped in the follicle, and these hairs can form in two ways...
1) A layer of skin grows over the follicle opening, trapping the hair within the follicle
2) As hair is growing out of the follicle, it grows into the side wall of the follicle instead of breaking the skin surface
Do you suffer from ingrown hairs a lot? Not sure how to tackle them? The team at Dr. Kamil Al Rustom Skin and Laser Centre has just the answer.

How to treat ingrown hairs
Laser hair removal is definitely the best solution to reducing the occurrence of ingrown hairs in problem areas, according to Dr. Kamil Al Rustom Skin and Laser Centre. Especially if you have coarse or curly hair and you find you have recurring ingrown hairs.
Because laser hair removal destroys the hair follicles at the source, the hair itself doesn’t get a chance to become ingrown. Over time hairs become thinner and lighter decreasing the likelihood of this happening again.
