Folliculitis – Is Laser Hair Removal The Solution?

Are you embarrassed by the ingrown hairs on your face or body? Has dealing with the annoying pimple rash on a daily basis taken a toll on your self confidence?Thankfully there may be an easy solution for your problem. Did you know that laser hair removal can help reduce those inflamed ingrown hairs we call Folliculitis?

Folliculitis is a common condition that is mainly caused by a bacterial infection of the hair follicles. The hair follicles become inflamed causing tiny red or white pimples to develop on the skin. Folliculitis is commonly caused by waxing, shaving, tweezing or wearing tight clothing. Folliculitis may be superficial or deep. Deep folliculitis can lead to scarring or permanent hair loss and if left untreated, may develop into a serious infection. Since folliculitis affects the hair follicle it can occur anywhere on the body that grows hair. The most common areas affected are the face, the back of neck, underarms, buttocks, bikini line, back, legs and arms.

Laser Hair Removal as a treatment for Folliculitis

Laser hair removal may be a good solution, if you are prone to folliculitis. Here at Clinique Dallas we offer Forever Bare BBL and ClearHair (ND:YAG) laser hair removal systems by Sciton. During your consultation our laser technician will assess if laser hair removal is right for you, as well as discussing pre/post care required for treatment. Both lasers use a highly concentrated beam of light that is aimed directly into the hair follicles. The pigment of the follicles absorb this light and destroy the base of the hair follicle. By destroying the hair follicles, it makes it difficult for bacteria to enter and decreases the possibility of folliculitis. As you progress in your laser hair removal treatments you will notice a reduction of hair growth. This may take on average about 6 to 10 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart depending on the area being treated.

So if you’re tired of dealing with those embarrassing and annoying pimple bumps on your skin, then give laser hair removal a try! Call us at 972-566-2010 today to schedule a complimentary consultation.
