Pimple popping is out, and it has been replaced with something just as graphic: videos of ingrown hairs being removed.
The up-close images of the precision with which tweezers remove people's ingrown hairs are both highly satisfying and deeply disturbing.
Ingrown hair forms when either a tweezed or shaved hair grows back into one's skin instead of out of it, and it can result in pain, inflammation and a rash.
Symptoms of ingrown hairs include small rounded bumps around the inflamed follicle; blister-like, pus-filled lesions; a skin darkening side effect called hyperpigmentation; itching and pain.
