Ingrown Hair (pseudofolloculitis barbae)

One of the more common problems we see particularly in individuals with coarse, curly hair is pseudofolliculitis barbae  (ingrown hair).  These bumps caused by shaving are most common in the bikini line of women and neck area of men. Shaving produces a sharply pointed hair that re-enters the skin. This causes an inflammatory response around the ingrown hair tip. Scarring can result from the inflammatory response. Shaving not only causes but also aggravates the condition. This persistent inflammation on the skin can be dramatically improved with laser hair removal treatments.
