LHR is clearly the best way to solve this problem. It takes about 6 treatments or more to get the desired results and then touch up about every 6-12 months. Make sure you go to an experienced provider because this can end up with burns and scarring if not done properly.

Laser hair removal is the best treatment for hair removal especially if you have ingrown hairs. You will notice a smoother area with less marks.  Given the laser removes hair, there is less hair to cause a problem such as ingrown hair.  Lasers that are used include the alexandrite, diode and yag laser.  The one selected will depend on your skin color and ethnicity. Find an experienced provider for your treatment

Ingrown hairs happen when the hair curls underneath the skin. When you start treating the area with laser hair removal. We are treating the actual hair follicle. So, if you are more prone to ingrown hairs, this would be the treatment for you.
