If you’re tired of dealing with the red, sore bumps or pus filled spots on your skin that are so common with folliculitis, it may be time to consider something a bit more permanent. It may be time to think about laser hair removal.
What Is It?
Folliculitis is a fairly common condition; it’s the inflammation of the hair follicle. It can occur anywhere you grow hair, and it can be caused by a number of things: the friction from your clothes, waxing, or shaving. In fact, anytime the hair follicle gets damaged, it becomes susceptible to folliculitis because the condition is caused by bacteria. It typically looks like a red pimple with a hair at the center, and in some cases, it can make you physically ill with a mild fever and an upset stomach.
Because some people are so prone to this condition and it becomes a constant battle with their skin, it could even leave lasting scars that are tough to eliminate in the long term.
If you have a particularly severe outbreak, you may even need to schedule an appointment with your GP to obtain antibiotics or creams to help eliminate the infection. This, however, may be a short-lived solution if you deal with it on a regular basis.
If you’re prone to folliculitis, Laser Hair Removal is one good solution. Every time you have a laser hair removal treatment, a beam of light is aimed at the hair. The light is absorbed by your skin, and that helps to shut the follicle down, which, in turn, helps to eliminate the possibility of folliculitis. Shaving and waxing will no longer be an issue for you, and you won’t have to deal with the constant red, itching skin that so often accompanies folliculitis ever again.
