Ingrown hairs occur when a hair follicle becomes irritated, and the hair follicle forces the hair to grow in the wrong direction. These hairs can cause pain, itching, burning, and a raised bump where the hair is located. Not only is ingrown hair irritating and painful, but it can last much longer than a common pimple and can even become infected. We all have heard about ingrown hairs and things that cause them to form, but many do not know what to do to treat ingrown hairs or where to turn for help if they become problematic.

Folliculitis is a common diagnosis that is caused by hair follicles becoming inflamed and then blocked. It can look like white and yellow-headed pimples, small red bumps, or something like razor bumps. At times, this can be treated with typical washing, but when it becomes more severe, medicine can need to be prescribed. This type of ingrown hair can become embarrassing as it can cover large parts of the body. These bumps can appear anywhere, generally found on thighs, buttocks, neck, and armpits. At Encore Medical Rejuvenation, we have seen many clients struggling with inflamed and extremely painful bumps or ingrown hair. Although anyone can get ingrown hair, it is more common among people with coarse or curly hair. Whether shoulder, armpit, or thigh, or you want to get rid of ingrown beard hairs, Encore Medical Rejuvenation can help.

What are ingrown hairs?

Commonly causing razor bumps, ingrown hair is an inflammatory condition of follicles anywhere on the body, including the beard area. Ingrown hairs occur when hair starts growing in the opposite direction of typical hair growth. An ingrown hair can cause a very painful, swollen bump that often can become infected and even leave scars. They are quite common, and it is recommended that an individual does not try to remove the ingrown hair themselves for fear of introducing bacteria and causing greater infection to form. 

Reports have suggested that 1 out of every 4 people aged 11 to 3o years have ingrown hairs. This condition is not dangerous but can leave stubborn skin scars. There are different hair removal methods available on the market today, but laser treatment is the best option to prevent persistent cases of ingrown hair. Shaving, tweezing, and waxing can cause ingrown hairs to form if not done in the direction of hair growth or done with too much pressure or force. Infected hair follicles can also happen naturally by dead skin cells clogging the pore or by wearing tight clothing. 

At Encore Medical Rejuvenation, we understand that ingrown hair happens, but we have the tools needed to help you remove hair at its source, preventing ingrown hair from even having the chance to occur. Contact us today to book your appointment with Encore Medical Rejuvenation or to discuss treatment options. We offer professional assistance to target your existing ingrown hairs and prevent new ones from forming.

Major causes of ingrown hairs

Most ingrown hairs occur when a hair has been shaved or cut and starts growing back and curves into the skin. Moreover, hair removal procedures like waxing or tweezing can also lead to ingrown hair. Dead skin cells often clog the hair follicle, and oil and dirt can become trapped inside. Such a blockage forces the hair to grow beneath the skin. Hair growth direction and structure also play a vital role in ingrown hairs. Curved hair follicles or skin pulling while shaving can also develop ingrown hairs. Shaving makes your hair edges sharp, making them easier to pierce back into the skin. Apart from these, here are some other causes of ingrown hairs.

  • Improper hair removal
  • Clogged follicles
  • Friction
  • Tight Clothing

How to get rid of ingrown hairs quickly and safely?

Most ingrown hairs will clear up naturally without treatment, but sometimes it becomes vital to get professional treatment to remove these hairs. Prevention is the best option, and to prevent ingrown hairs, you need to exfoliate your skin and scrub any existing ingrown hairs gently with a small, soft brush. Doing this will help remove the dead skin cells, dirt, and oil and allow the tip of the hair to come out of your skin.

An ingrown hair can be embarrassing, and if bacterial infections form, they can infect your skin further. It is therefore recommended that you seek professional treatment options to prevent further bacterial infection or skin darkening.

Encore Medi Rejuvenation is a beautiful and welcoming Medi spa. The front staff are incredibly lovely and very helpful. I have been getting Hydrafacials with Jara for the past several months and I am so pleased with the results. I am a monthly visitor and have also done microblading with Jara. She is very sweet and very thorough with both the Hydrafacial and microblading. I haven't tried the other services but am looking forward to trying them the future. Highly recommend this Medi spa!
