Laser Hair Removal as a Treatment for Ingrown Hair

Laser Hair Removal in Glendale, CA
When a person shaves or waxes their hair, the broken off or short embedded hair that remains can get trapped inside the hair follicle and grow sideways or can grow back into the skin. This ingrown hair may or may not be accompanied by an infection of the hair follicle or razor bumps and can be painful.
Ingrown hair most commonly appears on the face, legs, and bikini line, but can appear anywhere. Sometimes ingrown hair occurs naturally without shaving, as blocked pores, too much dead skin, or tight clothing prevent hair from emerging from the follicle.

Laser hair removal can eliminate ingrown hair, leaving your skin smooth and hair-free for longer and even indefinite periods of time. During laser hair removal, the laser beam targets the hair follicles deep beneath the skin, disabling the root and stops any regrowth from that follicle. Since the entire hair follicle is destroyed, you do not have to worry about ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal can be performed on almost any part of the body and will make hair lighter, finer, and prevent ingrown hairs.

No More Varicose and Spider Veins

Sclerotherapy is known as a treatment for varicose veins and spider veins. The procedure involves administering FDA approved sclerosing agent (Polidocanol) into the affected vein. This solution causes the vein to produce scarring and then collapsing. This will force the blood flow to reroute into healthy veins instead of damaged ones. The damaged vein will eventually just get absorbed again into the local tissues and over time fades away.

Sclerotherapy is commonly the preferred treatment for small varicose veins.

Sclerotherapy is the solution

• This procedure will help to improve the look of varicose veins and spider veins.
• It can also help with related symptoms including aching, night cramps and inflammation.
• Your legs will look nicer, sexier and smoother, bringing your confidence back.

Asclera® (Polidocanol) Injection is a FDA approved prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy to remove unwanted veins on your legs.

• It works by irritating the endothelium, the cells lining the inside of the vessels, causing them to constrict and close.

• It is administered by a healthcare provider only to treat varicose veins and spider veins.

Asclera® is not used for varicose veins more than 3 mm in diameter.
