ingrown hairs

Ingrown hairs form when hairs grow back after shaving, waxing, electrolysis or other forms of hair removal, and fail to grow out of the skin. Hairs curl inside the follicle under the skin and the resulting foreign body reaction creates an unsightly bump.

Both women and men suffer from ingrown hairs. Women get them afteringrown-hair shaving their legs, bikini lines and underarms, as well as after waxing, laser, IPL and electrolysis. Men get ingrown hairs on beard growth areas, chest, back and legs.  

Applying Tend Skin Liquid to areas that are shaved, waxed or treated with electrolysis and laser, will reduce the appearance of ingrown hair formation that can occur after these procedures. Tend Skin Liquid will also reduce the appearance of existing ingrown hairs with visible results often seen in 24-48 hours.

Tweezing is not needed or advised as resulting skin damage can increase the formation of ingrown hairs.
