Shaving bumps (pseudofolliculitis barbae) are caused by ingrown hairs which produce a foreign body reaction in the skin. Previously, the only effective treatment was to “grow a beard.” Now, Hughes Dermatology’s long-pulse Nd:YAG laser (Lyra-i) successfully and affordably treats this troublesome malady and is safe for skin of color. Contact Dr. Hughes today for evaluation and treatment.
