Exfoliation Treatment Ingrown Hair
We offer a variety of exfoliating treatments that can help with stubborn ingrowing hairs. Specific skin peels and microdermabrasion both work to remove dead skin cells that are trapped in the hair follicle and over the ingrowing hair, freeing it to heal naturally.
A skin peel involves applying a non-toxic chemical solution to the skin to encourage skin cell turnover, allowing fresh, soft skin to replace it. Microdermabrasion is performed using a mechanical device which simultaneously buffs away unwanted dead skin cells using microcrystals and vacuums the top layer of skin.
Although both exfoliation treatments will help the condition, they are not long-term solutions for eradicating the problem, especially if you choose to continue with temporary hair removal methods such as shaving and waxing.
