Default Does laser hair removal stop ingrown hairs

I can't find much on the internet about this. Will removing the hairs on my legs reduce the ingrown hairs?

Everytime I get an ingrown hair it seems like I get an ugly scar that takes about 6 months to go away.

Has anyone on the board done laser hair removal specifically for ingrown hairs? Was it successful?

Default definitely worth it

Getting rid of the hairs on my legs certainly helped a lot. I think its because I so rarely need to shave nowadays.

And when I do shave I only get at most one or two ingrown hairs whereas I used to get at least 6-8 on my bikini line alone.

I think it is worth it

yeah it definitely reduced the number of ingrown hairs on me.

I still have to occassionally shave but the hairs are so thin and fine I rarely get the ingrown hairs on my back anymore

Dee Dee,

That depends on what type of laser you use and a bunch of other variables. But generically speaking, yes laser hair removal or electrolysis treatments will help at least REDUCE the frequency and number of ingrown hairs someone gets.
