Will Laser Hair Removal Work on my Folliculutis on my Buttox with Very Light Hair?

My folliculitis becomes inflamed from friction from tight pants, can this be fixed with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can absolutely help with folliculitis, and it is often used to eliminate unwanted hair on the buttocks, but there is not a laser that can effectively treat light hair, unless it is light hair with a dark root. Fine light hair typically does not result in folliculitis, so perhaps the hair does have a dark root. Visit a medical facility with multiple lasers, able to treat all skin types and determine if laser hair removal can work for you.
