Ingrown hairs occur mainly in the beard area in men and in the bikini area and on the legs (upper and lower legs) in women. Ingrown hairs occur either due to a crooked hair canal, frizzy hair or bacterial infection after shaving or hair removal by waxing or plucking.
Especially if the hair is very frizzy, the ends of the hair reenter the skin and grow back into it. This leads to painful inflammation with papule and pustule formation.
Procedures such as electric epilation or laser hair removal are less promising. Even internal antibiotic treatment by a doctor would only temporarily solve the problem of ingrown hairs. Only permanent hair removal with IPL can solve the problem of ingrown hairs for good. Thus, with permanent hair removal using IPL, the hair root is destroyed and the hair simply grows out. Permanent hair removal”:/en/laser-hair-removal-berlin.html of ingrown hairs is successfully carried out at the BellaDerma specialist centre with IPL treatment.
To remove dead horn cells from the skin, use a skin care product with a light exfoliating effect such as an enzyme peel before shaving. Dead horn cells that clog ingrown hairs can be removed by using a lotion with amino acids, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide or sulphur. Always use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 15.
