Who makes the best candidate for treatment?
Sources say that pseudofolliculitis is caused by coiling of the hair, so some people are more prone to the condition than others, namely those of African or Middle Eastern descent. Those patients who want relief from the itching, burning problem of razor bumps are excellent candidates for laser treatment. The only way to tell for sure is to set up your private consultation with one of our practitioners in the Columbia, MD and Baltimore areas.
Is there any downtime?
Clients can expect some slight swelling and redness for the first few hours after their session. Ice packs or a Laser Enzyme Gel can be applied to help ease any discomfort. You may also receive creams and lotions from our team to help smooth and heal the skin. All that being said, you will be able to return to your normal routine right away after your appointment, as there is no extended downtime with laser hair removal.
