Do you suffer from ingrown hairs or shaving bumps? Did you know that laser hair removal is the best way to get rid of that problem, forever?
Shaving bumps is a foreign body inflammatory reaction involving papules and pustules.
Two mechanisms are involved in the pathogenesis of PFB (Pseudo Folliculitis):
- Extrafollicular penetration occurs when hair reenters the skin.
- Transfollicular penetration occurs when the sharp tip of a growing hair pierces the follicle wall.
The sharp pointed hair from a recent shave briefly surfaces from the skin and reenters a short distance away. The close shave results in a sharp tip below the skin surface which is then more likely to pierce the follicular wall causing PFB with transfollicular penetration.
Safe and effective treatments
DermaTouch, RN now provides the most advanced FDA cleared laser technology for the reduction and elimination of Pseudo Folliculitis (PF), more commonly known as shaving bumps. These may appear on any commonly shaved area of your body. This advanced technology allows us to treat all ethnic groups and skin types safely and effectively.
Treatments that really work
Laser light is absorbed by pigment in actively growing hair damaging the hair follicle which results in impeded hair re-growth. This reduces and eliminates the bumps caused by ingrown hairs. The average client sees at least a 75% short-term reduction of shaving bumps within two weeks after just one or two treatments. One or two annual touch up treatments may be required after completing the initial treatment series.
Average treatment series
Only a portion of your hair is in the active phase at the time of treatment. Therefore, a series of treatments (6 to 8 treatments) will be required to achieve the long-term improvement you desire. These treatments are spaced approximately 4-12 weeks apart based on anatomical position and hair growth cycles. Long-term improvement is seen after completing a series of four to six treatments.
Typical treatment sessions
Sessions to treat the neck or bikini area can take as little as 15 minutes, while a full beard and neck may take 45 minutes.
