Ingrown Hair and Acne Cyst Removal on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica

Ingrown hairs can cause inflammation and irritation of the skin; often leading to a process known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or post-inflammatory erythema. It is usually a good idea to treat ingrown hairs early so that they don’t manifest into a more chronic skin condition. 
In Santa Monica, Kare Plastic Surgery and Skin Health Clinic offers ingrown hair treatments with cortisone and anti-inflammatory therapy. Whether this occurs from waxing, lasering, or shaving, ingrown hairs can manifest in terms of acute and chronic inflammation. Our clinicians are highly skilled physicians, nurses, and physician-assistants who can evaluate the ingrown hair or cyst and recommend either laser therapy or cortisone injection to relieve the discomfort. 
When corticosteroids are injected into the skin, they usually mitigate the level of inflammation. Dr. Karamanoukian, our senior surgeon also performs laser-assisted corticosteroid treatments that avoid shots. With most treatments, swelling and induration should resolve within 12 to 24 hours.
