Furuncle is a painful inflamed pus filled cavity in the skin. The size of a furuncle can range from a pea to a walnut. Although furuncles can develop on any parts of the body, they frequently appear on hair covered regions as well as in areas where friction occur e.g. the neck, armpit, groin, face, breast, buttocks etc.
Incisions of the furuncle are carried out with the help of laser-scalpels in our clinic. The post-operative period is almost painless; wound healing occurs faster as compared to routine surgical incisions. Therapeutic lasers are used during post-operative incisions, which speeds up wound healing as well as provides better cosmetic effects.
