Most frequently razor bumps occur when hair is shaved and a short sharp stump is left behind, which then begins to grow back. When it grows back, it curls inwards and its tip punctures the skin and re-enters. The skin then deduces that this is a foreign object and attacks it. In the process, irritation and sometimes inflammation results. For some people, ingrown hairs are a serious problem because they can cause bleeding and permanent scarring of the skin. Razor Bump Treatment: There are several widely-available solutions that can combat ingrown hairs. These are shaving, plucking, waxing and using crèmes and gels. These methods all produce temporary solutions. GentleCare Laser Aesthetics offers laser based hair removal treatments using the most effective lasers to remove ingrown hair and provide a permanent solution. Laser hair removal is gaining interest as more people switch over in search of a more permanent solution to razor bumps. Depending on your skin and hair type, our doctors will determine which laser device is more effective for you. GentleCare Laser Aesthetics uses laser technology which allows safe removal of unwanted hair thereby eliminating ingrown hairs and leaving smooth skin devoid of any rashes or razor bumps. This is also ideal because it has an ideal wavelength of light energy which does not damage the hair and hair follicle axis because it is computer-regulated and therefore precise. It is also good at targeting the precise areas which need to be treated.
