Razor Bumps and Ingrown Hair Permanent Removal Via Electrolysis
Ingrown hairs and pseudofolliculitis (commonly known as “razor bumps”) are extremely common and generally harmless, however painful and unsightly. Razor bumps occur when skin becomes irritated during shaving/waxing/plucking/etc., while ingrown hairs happen when curly hair grows back into the skin, or when hair grows sideways instead of exiting the skin as usual. While techniques like exfoliation can help minimize the likelihood of ingrown hairs occurring, they’re virtually impossible to avoid altogether, and sensitive areas like the bikini line/groin and neck are particularly susceptible to them. There is a high potential for ingrown hairs to become infected, so people who are especially prone to them after removing hair by shaving, waxing, etc. often turn to electrolysis to permanently remove the hairs and lessen the risk of infection (not to mention discomfort).
