Ingrown hairs are unsightly and often painful. They involve incorrect hair growth, where the hair grows in the wrong direction and becomes trapped inside the follicle.

Over time, there will be a permanent reduction in hair thickness and growth. The most common course of treatment is six to eight sessions, but you may need more for particularly stubborn hair.
