Laser hair removal is the best reatment for ingrown hairs
Keratosis Pilaris and Ingrown Hairs and removal of hair
Laser Hair Removal is the easiest and least painful method of removing your hair. I would suggest the Gentle Lase if you have light skin and dark hair or Gentle Yag if you have darker complexion. The laser hair is quick and easy and permanent. Keratosis Pilaris is a form of eczema and will not be affected by the laser hair removal. As with all cosmetic procedures please find a board certified dermatologist with experience in lasers for the best results.

If you choose to use glycolics or retinoids/retinols on the areas affected by kertosis pilaris, please be aware that you should not laser those areas. Those products make the skin more light sensitive and increase your chance of burning.
