Dealing with unwanted hair is a normal aspect of everyday life for the average man and
woman. However, hair follicle infection or folliculitis and ingrown hairs or Hidradenitis
Supprurativa are skin infections that can co-exist with common acne or presents as acne

have to shave on a daily basis just to maintain aesthetically smooth skin, whereas a large
percentage of others use a combination of methods toeliminate unwanted hair including
plucking, waxing, threading and bleaching, and this is especially the case for women in the
warm summer months.
Some of these methods are not only messy, but they can be painful, spread infection and
most of them offer only temporary relief. For those who are tired of cuts, nicks, bumps,
burns, constant infection and inflammation of the hair follicles and the other hassles
associated with removing unwanted hair, then laser hair removal may be an attractive option that is worth thinking about which would also avoid use of antibiotics to help clear the infections.
