Ingrown Hair and EpiLight Animation #1

This animation contrasts normal hair growth with an ingrown hair. It shows how an ingrown hair grows into the wall of the hair follicle. In the animation, the ingrown hair is treated with EpiLight which obliterates the hair. After EpiLight treatment, a new hair is sometimes able to grow back, but usually only a much thinner hair that may not become ingrown because it is too thin to penetrate the follicle wall.

Ingrown Hair and EpiLight Animation #2

This animation is similar to the one above. However, in this case no hair grows back after the EpiLight treatment. As stated above, EpiLight treatment can result in either a thin hair growing back to replace an obliterated one, or no hair regrowth.
