What can a doctor do for ingrown hair?

Dr. Ellen Marmur, MD
Dermatology

Chronic ingrown hairs, especially if they become infected and inflamed, are grounds for laser hair removal. It's a wonderful option, even for men. It may take ten sessions to do a man's face and three to eight for a woman's bikini line, but the process will put a stop to ingrown hairs forever. Men can then cut shaving down to once every four days, which greatly decreases the occurrence of both razor burn and bumps.
