Curly hair often ingrows into the skin and forms nodules. After shaving, the free end of the hair grows into the skin. Swelling and nodules are formed. Most often this is observed in the bikini area and on the neck in men. Ingrown hair causes inflammation and can cause scar formation and PIH (postinflamatory hyperpigmentation). Laser hair removal will stop hair growth in this area, which will save you from having to shave your hair and, of course, from ingrown hair.
