What You Need

to Know

Excessive hair in the gluteal cleft near the tailbone contributes to the formation of painful boils and abscesses, which are medically known as Pilonidal Cysts. This condition usually requires surgery to drain and cut out the infected area. 

To prevent it from occurring, hair removal is needed, because otherwise, as long there is hair growth in that area, cysts will keep growing back. This is why laser hair removal has become a medical recommendation to prevent cyst growth. This provides a longer-term and more permanent effect, so you won’t have to worry about painful boils appearing again.
