Laser hair removal is excellent treatment for ingrown hair, which you seem to have been suffering from. Sometimes during extrusion of dead hair, you might feel itchiness, but try not to scratch, as that will product darkening (hyperpigmentation). Always apply 1% cortisone ointment for 7 days after laser and try not to wear any tight clothing for 4-5 days and avoid intense workout for 3-4 days.
