What is Pseudo-folliculitis?
Pseudo-folliculitis (razor bumps) is a common condition of a closely shaved area, which occurs in people with thick curly hair. The problem results when highly curly hairs grow back into the skin causing inflammation and a foreign body reaction. Over time, this can cause keloidal scarring which looks like hard bumps.
What to Expect: (Immediately after Treatment)
Perifollicular erythema (reddening around hair shaft) immediately following laser application. On occasion this reaction is absent or minimal.
Expected Final Outcome:
Full resolution. Requires multiple (up to five) treatments with occasional maintenance treatments.
