Who has this kind of hair?
People with dark skin have a higher likelihood of having this type of facial or body hair, but it appears in all skin tones. An individual with straight hair can also have an ingrown hair.
Why is curly or coarse hair a problem?
Curly hair is more prone to become ingrown or cause raised bumps on your skin. Coarse hair gets stuck underneath the skin. Attempting to manage these problems by temporary methods such as depilatories, shaving or tweezing can make them worse through scarring or creating discolored areas of skin.
How does electrolysis help with these issues?
Electrolysis safely removes ingrown hairs and the curly, coarse hairs that are prone to damage your skin without creating the issues caused by tweezing, other temporary methods of hair removal or incorrect shaving methods.
