Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a painless medical procedure that uses light from a laser to remove unwanted hair by destroying hair follicles (where hair growth starts).
As the laser light passes through the skin and strikes the hair follicles, the intense heat instantly destroys them. More darkly pigmented hair responds best to the laser, while hair that is lighter can be less responsive.
- For patients with lighter hair, topical medications may be used to increase the sensitivity of the hair to the laser light.
- For many patients, laser hair removal results in slowed hair re-growth.
It does not guarantee permanent hair removal but does provide hair-free periods that can range from months to years.
Generally speaking, up to three or more laser treatments are needed to provide more permanent results.

Laser Treatment for Pilonidal Disease
Pilonidal cysts are sac-like structures that form in the groove between the buttocks. They are often filled with hair and debris and may resemble small pores with noticeable dark spots. When infected, abscesses develop which’s can cause mild to severe pain, swelling and purulent drainage. They are often treated with antibiotics, warm soaks, surgical incision and drainage, wound closure, and excision of cyst. Excessive ingrown hairs are associated with recurrence so that methods to remove hair in this area are useful. More recently laser hair removal treatment of pilonidal cysts have been used to reduce the need for surgical intervention and recurrence.
