Professor from the Department of General Surgery at Memorial Bahçelievler Hospital. Dr. Ediz Altınlı gave information about ingrown hairs and laser treatment.
Hair loss is a disease located between the buttocks, called the internatal area. Professor, who says that in those who work by sitting and those who have more depth in their two hips, that is, in people who are overweight, the hairs in the area go into the skin. Dr. Ediz Altınlı said, “Inverted hair is the inversion of hair in various parts of the body, especially in the coccyx, groin and genital area, and armpits, and causing abscesses, wounds and fistulas by forming a hair cut. It affects social life negatively because it causes discomfort in simple sitting and standing actions. In order to prevent ingrown hairs, it is important to give importance to personal hygiene, to stay away from excess weight and to stay physically active all the time.
Many treatment methods have been used for ingrown hairs until today. In the procedure called Limberg flap, which is performed under general anesthesia for 1,5-2 hours for ingrown hair, the area is removed in the form of a lozenge and the top is left open. Keeping the treated area open can cause some difficulties in social life. Expressing that the subsequent maintenance process also requires great sensitivity, Prof. Dr. Ediz Altınlı said that the laser method provides comfort in the treatment of ingrown hairs.
prof. Dr. Ediz Altınlı said the following about the laser method: “The most up-to-date treatment method for ingrown hairs is the laser technique. The area with ingrown hair is burned with a laser under general anesthesia under camera vision. The two walls are glued together by shooting. Even in the most complicated cases of ingrown hair, the procedure takes 20-25 minutes. At the end of the procedure, the patient has no pain. Patients can sit comfortably without any restrictions directly after the procedure. In all other ingrown hair treatments, sitting on the post-procedure area is either completely prohibited or allowed within certain periods. After the laser hair removal procedure, you can return to daily life and start working the next day. You can take a shower immediately after the procedure. The only restriction after the procedure is not to do heavy sports for 6 weeks, not to ride a motorcycle and to take a break from sports such as rowing. One of the biggest advantages of lepsit is that the process can be repeated. Since an extra incision is not made to the patient, there is no problem in cases where the procedure needs to be repeated.”
