Folliculitis is an inflammation of the hair follicle, usually due to a bacterial or fungal infection. It can be exacerbated by close shaving the affected area as this causes the infection to spread. Self-care includes abstaining from shaving and exfoliating the affected areas, using antibacterial products, and non-irritating moisturizers or toners. Since hair removal causes folliculitis, you’re stuck with embracing hairiness or being covered with inflamed pores.
Laser hair removal offers a different option. As an effective and permanent hair reduction option, you can solve two problems at once: the folliculitis and the constant shaving/waxing that caused the folliculitis in the first place. Schedule a consultation to find out how many treatments you need!
