Laser Hair Removal
What Areas Can be Treated?
Problematic and excessive hair growth are seen more commonly in many ethnic populations, including South American, African, Asian- Pacific, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and African-American subjects. Pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB), “beard bumps” and ingrown hair is a common disorder in African-American, African-Caribbean and African subjects with tightly curled or coiled facial hair. In PFB, curved hairs emerge from curved follicles at an acute angle and penetrate the nearby skin causing a reaction that is characterized by papules, pustules or small nodules at the point of re-entry.
