Dr. Joel Schlessinger answers questions about ingrown hairs, treating sunburn and more on TheStyleAndBeautyDoctor.com

Dr. Joel Schlessinger was recently featured as a skin care expert on TheStyleAndBeautyDoctor.com in the article “The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly of Summer Skin: How to Tame Ingrown Hairs, Sunburn, and More.” The doctor answers common questions posed by the website’s Facebook fans about how to relieve ingrown hairs, the best remedies for treating sunburn and the best way to remove excess hair with laser hair removal at home.

For getting rid of dark marks on the legs, Dr. Joel Schlessinger recommends using SkinMedica Scar Recover Gel for scars, FixMySkin 1% Hydrocortisone Balms for irritation and NeoStrata Bionic Lotion for large hair follicles.

To remove excess hair on the legs, arms and bikini area, the doctor recommended trying laser hair removal at home. The newest invention is the Tria Laser, an easy-to-use laser hair removal at home treatment that successfully removes stubborn, unwanted hair.

“While it is clearly slower than going to the dermatologist, the treatments are with a bona-fide laser,” says Dr. Joel Schlessinger.

Another question posed to the doctor was how to treat and avoid ingrown hairs.

“Ingrown hairs are caused by aggressive shaving techniques or infected hair follicles,” he said.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger recommends using refined shaving tools such as The Art of Shaving for a close, comfortable shave that helps avoid these pesky hairs.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger also shared the best products for treating sunburn. He recommends Heliocare tablets to boost your immune system before going out in the sun. However, if it is too late, he recommends taking a take an aspirin or other over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine for treating sunburn.
