Ingrown Hair Treatment FAQ’s

What is an ingrown hair?

An ingrown hair is a hair that does not emerge from the follicle but remains embedded in the skin, usually causing inflammation. If left untreated, ingrown hairs can result in pain, itching, tenderness and in some cases, infection and permanent scarring.

What causes an ingrown hair?

Ingrown hairs can occur after hair removal when dead skin cells accumulate and form a papule as the skin heals. Hair growing in the area gets trapped under the papule and is prevented from exiting the skin, creating an ingrown hair. Irritating and unsightly ingrown hairs can occur on any part of the body.
