Ingrown Hair Removal: What Are the Top Areas Treated?

You are likely familiar with painful and unsightly ingrown hairs if you shave, tweeze, or wax any body part. And you probably already know that they pop in the weirdest and most uncomfortable spots. Fortunately, ingrown hair removal via laser treatment is an excellent way to find some relief.

Ingrown Hair Removal: What Are the Top Areas Treated?

There are several areas of the body where you can have ingrown hair removal laser treatment performed. Here are some of the most common.


Ingrown armpit hairs sometimes appear as raised, itchy bumps and can be caused by shaving, sweating, and some deodorant.

Underarm ingrown hairs can get infected and become painful, hard, and filled with pus. While you can treat the infection yourself, it is not recommended for armpit ingrown hairs because it can cause nearby lymph nodes to swell with drainage from the follicle.

The Beard Area (Neck, Cheeks, Chin)

A man can exfoliate and clean his face thoroughly before shaving every single day and still develop ingrown hairs in the beard area.

Ingrown hair removal for the neck, cheeks, and chin is a common treatment men get to reduce the chances of skin irritation, bumps, and skin discoloration.

Pubic Area (Bikini Line, Inner Thigh)

The bikini line and inner thigh are some of the most common and most painful places for ingrown hairs. It is possible that one can turn into a cyst, which is a fluid-filled sac that remains underneath the skin.


Ingrown hairs on the buttocks can lead to a painful skin infection that forms a pilonidal cyst. A pilonidal cyst is almost always found near the tailbone. Pilonidal cysts develop when a hair punctures your skin and becomes embedded. In some cases, it can lead to a serious infection.

Ingrown Hair Removal: Other Treated Areas

In addition to the aforementioned areas, patients often have ingrown hair removal performed on other areas of the body, including:

  • Legs
  • Scalp
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Inside the nose
  • Eyebrows
  • Buttocks
