Ingrown Hair Therapy
Ingrown Hair Treatment
Waxing, shaving, sugaring, tweezing, epilators, and even hair removal creams or depilatories can cause ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs happen when a hair grows back the wrong way, causing pain. After getting rid of your unwanted hair, you find little red painful bumps over your skin. They look like a rash and hurt and itch. The danger with this is that they can become infected, especially if you keep shaving or using hair removal methods before your skin has had a chance to heal. The other problem with ingrown hairs is that they have the tendency to crop up in places where the skin is especially tender (the bikini line, thighs, and face) so that they become a huge annoyance.
The best way to avoid ingrown hairs is to prevent them before they begin. You can do this by exfoliating before shaving and by exfoliating with a loofah or body scrub each time you shower. This seems to work by stimulating the skin and by keeping pores open. Some women find that consciously relaxing their muscles while hair is being removed helps to prevent ingrown hairs. After removing hair, you should avoid using heavy moisturizers or creams on your skin for a few hours. These can clog skin. You can use witch hazel, aftershave, toner, or even cold water after waxing, tweezing, sugaring or using an epilator. This tightens the pores and cleans the skin (NEVER use witch hazel, toner or aftershave on sensitive areas like the bikini line, and only use toner on your face). If you find that one part of your body is always affected by ingrown hairs, try using a different hair removal method on that part of the body.
For customers who have problems with ingrown hairs, despite using the above mentioned methods, we have special treatments, which, through intensive exfoliation help to reduce ingrown hair, blemishes and skin imperfections.
We use reputable cosmetics Janssen Cosmeceutical when performing treatments.
