If you’re suffering from the physical discomfort or embarrassment of unsightly ingrown hairs, the Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic can help. If you’re wondering “can I get ingrown hair treatment in my area?”, visit our nearby Melbourne clinic today.
An ingrown hair will appear as a singular raised red bump, a whitehead, or as areas of redness around hair follicles. They can occur anywhere on the body, and can cause pain and discomfort. Anybody can get ingrown hairs, however, they are more common in people who have coarse or curly hair.
Although ingrowns are very common and usually harmless, they can be dangerous – and even life-threatening – if they become infected. Infection can cause further inflammation, additional pain and pus, skin discolouration, and can also leave behind an unsightly scar.
Ingrown hairs are caused by the regrowth of hair in the wrong direction. The hair grows backwards or sideways back into the skin, resulting in inflammation and pain. This can be exacerbated by:

At the Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic, we have fully trained practitioners offering laser hair removal for the safe, efficient and permanent removal of ingrown hairs. Our laser treatments can also help with the reduction and prevention of associated scarring.
As there is no home cure for ingrown hairs apart from painful picking and squeezing – which often aggravates the area – laser hair removal is the most effective way to minimise the likelihood of their occurrence.
