Avatar f tn I bought a Groupon for laser hair removal (Brazilian) and did 1 session about 2 weeks ago. I found out on Saturday that I'm 4 weeks pregnant. Is laser hair removal safe during pregnancy? Do I need to cancel my next appt for Jan 9th (I'll be 8 weeks then)?
Avatar f tn Hi everyone! I'm 21 weeks today, and I'm wondering if i can continue doing laser hair removal during my pregnancy. The technician doing it for me is certified, and she claims it's perfectly safe. She herself had it done while pregnant 9 years ago. Can anyone help me with some advice?

486679 tn?1234579529 this may be a dumb question so please dont anyone get angry at me for asking but can u get laser tx done during pregnancy?i am supposed to go for a laser tx on wed for acne and have recently found out i am about 7 weeks along.my doc told me it was safe while trying to conceive so i am assuming it would still be safe- he says it is just a light pulse but how do u guys feel about this???
Avatar n tn ), waxing, and laser hair removal are safe during pregnancy. I am planning to let laser hair removal a month or so before I am due because it takes 5-10 days for the hair to fall out after the laser hair removal, and it takes about 6-8 weeks for it to grow back. I figure that should be ample time for the hair to fall out even if I go into labor a couple of weeks early. Many places that do it offer the first service free for you to try out, but it is very expensive if you continue.
743543 tn?1268766823 I went through laser hair removal about two years ago and my under arm hair has decided to grow back this pregnancy. I really hope it's not permanant and will stop again when I have my little angel. Unwanted hair is a pain but really nothing you can do but shave wax pluck to get rid of it.
Avatar n tn The FDA certifies it as for its efficacy and safety. This is unique because it is relatively painless and unlike the laser hair removal process, IPL works equally well on most skin pigmentations without removing any of the pigment. IPL hair removal is reported to safely and effectively eliminate hair of all colors: blond, red, brown, black and even white. There are differences between laser and IPL. In IPL the intense light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted into heat.
Avatar n tn Yes, if you have that many it could very well be a hormonal imbalance, so I would check with your doctor or np
Avatar n tn I've been on the HCG injections for two months, and just within the last month I've noticed faster (and darker) hair growth on my upper lip AND also on my lower stomach. I have had laser hair removal on my lower stomach and now the hair is back as dark as it was after like the 2nd of 5 treatments. So something is doing it and nothing else has changed. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Not sure if it is safe during pregnancy, but I highly recommend laser hair removal if you can afford it. It hurts while they're doing it, but the results are wonderful. You can have as much or as little off as you like - anywhere. As for right now, I'd just use a razor the morning of your appt.
334776 tn?1249972181 Everywhere else though I shaved every other day! I am so glad i'm getting laser hair removal my SIL (who does it for a living) gave me gift cert for birthday to get it done then I found out I was pregnant. but now I am able to get it done since I had the m/c last month. I had one treatment so far on my underarms and the hair hasn't grown back but bikini area i've had two treatments and it's still there but thinner and some smooth spots.
Avatar n tn Now while doing research on this topic I saw that you should not use any treatments which may irritate the skin such as microdermabrasion, laser hair removal or even waxing for hair removal for 6 months following the use of accutane. Now if this be the case, how is it that pregnancy after 1 month is safe but microdermabrasion is not?? Birth defects are a much more serious matter as opposed to skin irritations.

Avatar m tn I have surgery and the stone was removed ,but stent was place tomorrow i am going to DR for remove of stent Does it pain a lot while removing ?
Avatar n tn so Now I am in consistent pain and will need to schedule surgery for a left ovary and fallopin tube removal. The only horrible thing I remember from the 1st surgery is the Gas in Shoulders.. Can you say OUCH!
384150 tn?1399908416 I had a course of microderabrasions and skin peels and was also having regular botox. I was just about to embark on a course of laser hair removal (bikini) and that was cancelled too!!! I have been back since loosing the baby and asked to resume but they have said NO as I am stil trying!!!
Avatar n tn The main scar is still sore on the inside and by later in the day I get pain down the left side, still have the shelf overhanging which hoping with time and eventually some exercise will go, still quite bloated but this comes and goes seems to get worse later in the day. Hormones have been all over the place as well. I have had a first period since the op and the pain was still horrendous but assume this is everything settling down again.
Avatar n tn I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue. I am having a very hard time finding any info on any one with this happening to them and the risks to me or my unborn child. I have seen several doctors and none of them have ever heard of this happening and 2 have suggested termination. I have an appointment with a high risk specialist on Thursday (02/27/03).
682777 tn?1226691122 However, this treatment should not be used in females who are pregnant as well as those who get epileptic fits. The safety of laser hair removal during pregnancy has not much been studied. Hence, many health care providers recommend avoiding laser hair removal during pregnancy due to the lack of information on its effect on the fetus. A new Super Intense Pulsed Light (SIPL) treatment has also come up.
162948 tn?1205256292 9th, so I was regular pretty fast, but I had a lot of pregnancy symptoms immediately after removal and a lot of spotting and brown discharge, which the doctor told me was normal. So now I'm very happy we got pregnant so fast, but I'm also worried.... I hope all will go good!!
8071871 tn?1398904296 Laser hair removal. Ive had 3 treatments and totally hair free. You cant get laser whilst pregnant. But I planned to get mine done before we started TTC. Money well spent.

485259 tn?1519050626 It's been almost 2 weeks since my laproscopic surgery, I have learned alot both from experiencing it and talking to ya'll here on the forum. Time to share, because just maybe somebody is about to go through the same thing and has questions or needs help. It would be great if everyone added their two cents and we will have a nice "what to expect when your expecting laproscopic surgery" list...lol 1. Don't be fooled, this is major surgery. You could be having body parts removed.
363243 tn?1331037450 Hi coco727272, I was recently diagnosed with PCOS. I am not African American, I am of Sicilian decent. I also have had problems with hursutism. I had something called laser hair removal on my face to remove upper lip hair, chin, neck and "sideburn" hair. It is really very effective and permanently removes hair as the laser kills the hair's root. You'll probably always have some hairs because you can grow new ones at any time in your life but it kills the hairs that are there.
Avatar n tn I am terribly concerned as I took Clomid in the past and used it for a 2-3 year period, on and off. It did not result in a pregnancy. I also had endometriosis for which I had laser surgery. I was on Danazol for 6 months prior to the surgery but it didn't work so I had surgery. I feel with all the hormones I took, it may have put me at an increased risk for ovarian cancer. I am 47 years old and am also waiting to go for an endometrial biopsy as I have endometrial thickening as well.
Avatar n tn I know I should of waited at least the day before my blood test BUT I DIDN'T, I took a Home pregnancy test yesterday (5dpt) and it was negative.. I'm so devasted... I feel so negative just to think that I'm not pregnant... I know I shouldn't feel like this because their can be hope.... Please tell me what you guys think..... Good Luck to everyone!!!!!!!
