Laser treatment for Pilonidal sinus
As hair growth in the area is the main cause of pilonidal sinus, effective laser hair removal prevents further recurrence. Long pulsed Nd YAG laser treatment is the best option for the removal of hair in the particular area.
Hair growth cycle
Hair development is a continuous cyclic process and all mature follicles go through a growth cycle consisting of growth (anagen), regression (catagen), rest (telogen) and shedding (exogen) phases. The duration of the phases changes based on the location of the hair and also personal nutritional and hormonal status and age.
Laser hair removal is effective only on mature hair follicles. As hair grows in a cyclical pattern it needs 6 to 8 sittings with a gap of 2 months between each sitting.
