Let’s look at each method in more detail.
Rules skin care after waxing
Typically, each of the masters describes in detail how and what to do after the procedure. But few of clients really obey those rules. Because the results are not always encouraging. Here are the rules:
- immediately after the procedure you need to use only underwear made of natural fabrics that are loose enough about the tailoring;
- at least the day after the procedure, it is necessary to abandon the relationship nylon stockings;
- within a few days it is better not to wear very tight pants and jeans;

- still redness after the procedure, it is not advisable to apply cosmetics to the skin.
Steaming and softening of the skin
Often this procedure is enough to alleviate the growing hairs exit to the outside. For steaming you will need a soft cloth and warm water. Or you can use traditional method when steaming the skin is used of the bread and warmed milk.
In any case, the cloth or bread must be dipped in warm liquid, gently squeeze and put on skin in the place where you want to get rid of ingrown hair.
Repeat the procedure several times, until the skin is steamed enough to open the pores and the top layer of the epidermis will not become loose enough to easily remove ingrown hairs.
The use of scrubs
Fight ingrown hairs with the help of scrubs just starting 5-7 days after the procedure, you can start to use the product with exfoliating particles 1 every two or three days. After each use of the scrub, it is recommended to moisten the skin cream.
The use of means with peeling effect
The easiest option is to use lotions for the treatment of acne. Usually such lotions include azelaic or salicylic acid, which have a significant exfoliating action.
You can also use ready-made products with enzymes of the type of papain and bromelain that do not only exfoliate dead skin but also slow down the process of hair growth.
Alternatively, you can use a mixture of powder and concoctions of hydrogen peroxide. Slurry should be applied to the area of the ingrown hair for 10 minutes every day during the week.
The use of peelings helps to prevent ingrown hairs, because they should be applied as a preventive treatment after each depilation.
Removal with a needle
Yourself to remove them with a needle or tweezers at home doctors strongly do not recommend, as there is a risk of spreading purulent infection. But every ingrown hair to the surgeon you will not go, because in most cases, women themselves cope with the problem.
The most important thing is to use antiseptics and to remove only those hairs, which are located on the surface and have no signs of purulent inflammation around them.
When to ask for help to the surgeon
To consult a surgeon about ingrown hair should be when formed subcutaneous «bumps» that become something more, something less. This usually means that the hair follicles occurs in a wave-like process of suppuration, which is amplified, then fizzles.
Do not rely on the fact that «bumps» will be yourself. If there is no outflow of pus, the hair remains in the tissues, the inflammation will be repeated.
There are times when these subcutaneous abscesses opened on their own. Then they also pus may withdraw one or more of the hair. But it also happens that the inflammation extends to the surrounding tissue and forms an abscess, which requires emergency surgical treatment.
To trigger the development of an abscess may attempt to discover their own «bump» with a needle or squeeze it by pressure of the fingers or nails.
