How to Stay Ingrown Free SpaBeauty NZ Articles and News What can be done about unsightly Ingrowns?

After hair removal, as the hair grows back, it can sometimes become blocked and trapped in the hair follicle turning into bumps or even infected pores. As the hair grows it can either just curl up, and look unsightly from the surface, or it can "dig" into the surrounding skin.

‘Invisible targets’ – Treating light, white and grey hairs with Intense pulsed light devices (IPL)

Written by Ruth Nicholson on June 9th, 2014.      0 comments
