When we use agents that pluck the hair like waxing, tweezing or threading, we make a trauma on the base of the hair.This provokes a distortion on the base of the hair follicle that leads to ingrown hairs. This happens frequently in the chin area, underarms, bikini line and abdomen.
These ingrown hairs can cause serious problems to the skin, hyperpigmentation and infections. Clients that have keloids must be very careful with ingrown hairs. The best option is to remove them permanently with Electrolysis. When the hair follicle is very distorted, various treatments are needed.
