Ingrown Hair Remedies

solutions for ingrown hairs
IPL is one of the most effective ways of treating ingrown hairs.

Are you struggling with ingrown hairs in your beard area?

Ingrown hair remedies are a top skincare concern for most males, especially in areas around the creases of the mouth area and neckline.

Although exfoliation and other skin resurfacing methods can offer mild relief, they do not provide a permanent solution to the issue. 

So, what can you do to alleviate this condition once and for all? Our TOP pick for treating ingrown hairs is IPL Hair Removal

What is IPL? 

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a form of phototherapy used to treat structures of the skin/hair.

This advanced method of phototherapy is similar to the commonly known LASER Hair Removal treatment, as it delivers permanent results for most hair and skin types. IPL Hair Removal differs from LASER in the effect that it has on the surrounding tissue. 

How does it work? 

IPL Hair Removal targets active hair follicles with a rapid pulse of light into the bulb of the hair strand. This action causes the live bulb to self-destruct and dissolve within 2-6 weeks.  

How effective is IPL? 

IPL Hair Removal can deliver maximum results of up to 98% hair reduction that lasts 3+ years dependent on the treatment site.  

Clients may need follow-up sessions to maintain maximum results 3 or more years following the last treatment date. Follow-up treatments required ranges from 1-3 sessions spaced 3-4 months apart.  

Why IPL

Up to 98% hair reduction that lasts 3+ years dependent on the treatment site.

IPL is one of the most effective ways of treating ingrown hairs because it not only removes the source of the condition but also helps alleviate some of the scarring left behind.  

How does IPL compare to other methods of ingrown hair removal?


Let us help you get rid of stubborn ingrown hairs and start clearing your skin with IPL Hair Removal. We guarantee you will be amazed with the results after just one treatment!

How does IPL compare to other methods of ingrown hair removal?

Ingrown Hair Removal

IPL is one of the most effective ways of treating ingrown hairs because it not only removes the source of the condition but also helps alleviate some of the scarring left behind.  

Here is how it compares: 

Waxing 

Waxing gives temporary removal and can thin the hair. Thinning the hair may result in more ingrown as the hair becomes too soft to break through the skin. It is not recommended to wax male facial hair due to risk of infection.  

Tweezing 

Provides temporary relief and can be time consuming. Picking out ingrown can leave scarring and infections.  

Shaving 

Often the cause of the condition and can cause major irritation over bumps. 

Exfoliating 

Clears the skin making of dead skin but does not remove the source of the problem or provide major benefit.   


So now that you have the details, let us help you get rid of stubborn ingrown hairs and start clearing your skin with IPL Hair Removal. We guarantee you will be amazed with the results after just one treatment!

1. Epilation (ep-i-la-tion) 

Process: The hair is dissolved or cut flush with skin. The root of the hair remains intact below the surface of the skin. There is no effect to the growth rate, texture, or density of growth.

The process removes hair growth that is visible at the surface of the skin. Depilation can have a mild effect on the regrowth depending on the stage in which the hair is removed. The most positive effect is seen on active hair growth.
