Pilonidal Sinuses and some abscesses around the buttock region results from the infection of an ingrown hair. Males who have had previous perianal abscesses are at greatest risk of repeat development of this condition. Laser Hair Removal greatly decreases the chances of developing perianal abscesses by permanently reducing the number of hairs in this region. This greatly decreases the chances of developing the ingrown hair which is the precursor to abscess formation.
