Folliculitis is caused by inflammation around hair follicles which creates red bumps and pustules. The bumps can be itchy or painful and may scar skin depending on time and/or location. These bumps can happen wherever there are hair follicles most commonly affecting the face, scalp, thighs, underarms and groin. Folliculitis can be caused by infection, irritation, blockage and other skin diseases. One specific type of folliculitis is caused by irritation due to regrowth of hair which usually occurs after shaving, waxing and or plucking. These pustules are sterile and there is no growth of bacteria or other organisms. People who deal with chronic irritant folliculitis benefit from permanent hair removal with laser treatment. Once the hair is permanently reduced/removed the folliculitis resolves.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal safely and gently removes unwanted body hair without damaging or irritating the skin. The laser works by using a beam of high-intensity light where it delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat to destroy the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Before laser hair removal treatment you should not pluck, wax or undergo electrolysis for 4-6 weeks. It is also important to avoid the sun 4-6 weeks before and after laser hair removal. The number of treatments needed depends on skin color, hair color and coarseness of hair. Many people suffer from ingrown hairs (razor bumps), laser hair removal may permanently rid patients of these bumps as it reduces/eliminates the hair.
