You probably don’t give a lot of thought to shaving bumps, or their official name (Pseudo Folliculitis or PFB), unless you have one or get them frequently. We see patients who have this issue at DermaTouch RN, and fortunately, we have the technology to make shaving bumps and ingrown hairs history!
What causes ingrown hairs or shaving bumps (PFB)?
Shaving bumps are caused by a foreign body inflammatory reaction involving papules and pustules. The pathogenesis of PFB is caused by:
- Extrafollicular penetration that occurs when hair reenters the skin after a close shave.
- Transfollicular penetration that occurs when the sharp tip of a growing hair pierces the follicle wall after a close shave.
Laser hair removal is the best way to get rid of Shaving Bumps and Ingrown Hairs!
DermaTouch, RN provides the most advanced FDA approved laser technology to help reduce and eliminate Pseudo Folliculitis (PFB), aka shaving bumps. This advanced technology allows us to treat all ethnic groups and skin types safely and effectively in the Houston, TX area.
How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The light of the laser is absorbed by pigment in actively growing hair. this process damages the hair follicle, resulting in the absence or re-growth. The average client sees at least a 75% short-term reduction of shaving bumps within two weeks after just one or two treatments.
How many treatments will I need for optimal results?
Because only a portion of your hair is in the active phase at the time of treatment, a series of treatments is recommended for permanent hair removal. Typically, 6 to 8 treatments will be required for long-term effects. Treatments are spaced 4 to 12 weeks apart depending on the anatomical position of the hair and hair growth cycles.
How long does laser hair removal last?
Typically, laser hair removal is permanent. One or two annual touch-up treatments may be required after completing the initial treatment series.
