I girl I know who is studying medicine like me and who does a lot of research told me once when I told her about my burn marks (mostly hyperpigmentations) and other side effects after LHR that the total thickness of the skin (and not just the epidermis) is said to have become renewed after aproximately ten years. She said that this meant that even the most persistent marks would be gone by then, that is to say if they aren’t real scars. Scars do “fade” with time and become practically invisible in some if is small enough, but they don’t realy go away.
Is this true about the renewal of skin? Wouldn’t this mean that hairs trapped in the skin (ingrowns) will also come to the surface with time (a lot of time though).
I don’t know if it’s because I didn’t pay atention or what, but recently I’ve discovered that I can se ingrowns (four of them) through my skin that must be old ones, becuase I can’t remember when I got them (the inflammation and pain phase). And I’ve got one out just to se if it works, the others I will let a electrologist remove.
Since I started removing my body hair with different methods I have always payed A LOT of atention to my skin and did not see this obviuose ingrowns through my skin. So they have to have become visible with time, appeared gradually (don’t know how to express it correctly). Is it correct to believe that deep ingrowns will resurface like this? Not because they are still growing but because of the renewal of the skin or something?
