Laser: Laser hair removal is an effective way to get rid of the hair permanently. This would avoid getting ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Electrolysis is another option but it's more time consuming since each hair has to be treated individually.

Razor bumps: Insure you use fresh, sharp blades vice dull blades. If hair is > several mm long – then trim before shaving. Wash area before shaving – warm water helps to soften hair. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard. Moisturize skin after shaving.
