Razor Bumps

GK Dermatology provides treatment of razor bumps in Weymouth MA.

What Are Razor Bumps?

Razor bumps, a condition known as pseudofolliculitis barbae, tend to occur in men with coarse facial hair. These hairs can easily become ingrown, i.e. bend back into the skin when shaved off too closely, thus re-entering the skin and causing an inflammatory reaction that evolves into irritating bumps on the beard area.

How Are Razor Bumps Treated?

Therapy can be individualized. The imbedded hairs can be dislodged. Dr. Kroumpouzos will recommend practicing shaving habits that allow for shaves that are not too close or too regular. He will also recommend specific razors and creams. Laser Hair Reduction decreases the density of hairs and is the most curative form of therapy. It takes several treatment sessions to complete. This popular treatment is available at GK Dermatology.
