Combining alexandrite laser hair removal treatment and oral zinc can lead to relief for those who live with HS
Study shows benefits of laser hair removal with hidradenitis suppurativa
Talk about life-altering!
Laser hair removal can have such a lasting, positive impact on those who choose the treatment, and it isn’t just for the aesthetic of having smooth, hair-free skin.
It also isn’t only because of the convenience of saving time without the need to shave or wax.
Recently, laser hair removal was found to provide relief to individuals who deal daily with hidradenitis suppurativa—a rare skin condition.
Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic skin condition in which hair follicles get obstructed, leading to inflammation and abscesses. It can be very painful, and sometimes a secondary infection can develop.
But there is some good news! A recent Healio article addresses how combining alexandrite laser hair removal treatment and oral zinc can lead to relief for those who live with HS.
The article reveals a study featuring patients with Stage 1 and Stage 2 hidradenitis suppurativa and how well they responded to a regimen of laser hair removal over a 15-week period. Among study participants, 50 percent reported a positive clinical response to laser hair removal.
