Common Questions and Answers about Laser hair removal genital

Avatar n tn Hi, I was diagnosed with genital HSV-1 two weeks ago. I am considering laser hair removal for the bikini areas. I am wondering if I should wait a few months or if it is okay to go ahead with this. Also, should I take Valtrex to supress an outbreak if I do? What is the typical course of suppressive therapy for a cosmetic procedure like this? Would this likely cause an outbreak?
Avatar n tn About three months ago I started began laser hair removal for my bikini area. I just recently have been diagnosed with genital warts. I have read that skin to skin contact is the most common way of transmition. But is it possible that transmition from an object, such as a laser, to the skin could cause genital warts?
Avatar n tn I have no experience or data with either waxing or laser hair removal but would expect them to be less likely to spread the infection. I hope this helps. Many of the questions and considerations, as before, are things you should be discussing with the doctor who treated you.
Avatar n tn Hello, What you seem to be having is called folliculitis. Folliculitis is the inflammation of one or more hair follicles. The condition may occur anywhere on the skin.It starts when hair follicles are damaged by friction from clothing or blockage of the follicle. In most cases of folliculitis, the damaged follicles are then infected with the bacteria Staphylococcus (staph). Pls keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics.
Avatar n tn from objects like bath towels). Unless warts are very large and uncomfortable, surgical removal or aggressive laser surgery to remove the warts is generally avoided. Treatment options such as surgical removal or removal by freezing (cryotherapy), burning (electrocautery), laser treatment, immunotherapy or some vaccine treatment are available. It should be noted that since warts are caused by a virus, they may recur following attempts at surgical removal.
Avatar f tn Hello, For small warts, several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts. Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation. In my opinion you should talk to a cosmetologist/dermatologist about this and get these warts evaluated. I hope it helps.
Avatar m tn Also you can go in for laser hair removal which causes permanent reduction of hair and does not cause folliculitis also. Please consult a good cosmetologist/dermatologist for that. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn Some stubborn cases of folliculitis have been responsive to laser-assisted hair removal. This process uses a laser to destroy the follicle. This reduces the scarring that results from folliculitis. Let us know if you need any other information and consult a skin specialist if the lesion is persistent. Regards.
Avatar f tn Hi ,Can i get laser hair removal while i have genital warts??my warts are tiny and there are about 2 or 3 warts.I just want to know if laser hair removal safe in this situation or it may cause of spreading warts on adjacent skin?
Avatar n tn I've searched the forums quite extensively and read up pretty much everything I can, but I'm still interested in some more views. As of September last year, I believe I have genital warts. I basically have 1 wart which is recurring. I've been to the GUM clinic a number of times. The first time they gave me the blue Warticon solution which I dabbed on 3 nights a week. After a number of weeks, the wart disappeared. I was a happy man. A month or two later it was back with a vengenance.
Avatar n tn Hi, I started brazilian (everything gone) laser hair removal. about 2 weeks after the first treatment a, what i believe is a pimple, formed on my buttocks where i just received treatment. Over the course of 2 more weeks it keept getting bigger and then it looked like it was affecting the surrounding hair folicules. I had about 5 of these bumps in the area of about a nickel.
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.
Avatar n tn I am a bit worried that i could have some sort of disease or somthing wrong inside my body? I have read that laser hair removal could help, it's soo expensive, and I have so many areas to treat. I wish that someone would do some reasearch and find out whats going on, im just glad im not alone though. Lastly if anyone has a sucsses storey, please tell.

Avatar m tn Years ago I was receiving laser hair removal on my entire brazilian area. After that, I began getting brazilian waxes. About 2-3 years ago I noticed a small, round bump (smaller than the zero on most keyboards) that was flesh colored, somewhat firm to the touch (solid, not filled with fluid) slightly raised, but relatively smooth, not bumpy. My immediate thought was that it was a keloid/scar as a result of shaving and/or having the laser used on such sensitive skin every month for years.
Avatar f tn The other thing, too, which I can't help but think is related, is that I've been doing laser hair removal in my bikini line area. I noticed this bump a few days after my fourth treatment. I'm wondering if it's a side effect of that, or maybe if the laser could cause a genital wart outbreak and that's why I never had one before?! I have a book recommendation for you: "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About HPV and Abnormal Pap Smears" by Joel Palefsky, M.D. After my dr.
Avatar n tn Hairs will grow for awhile and then fall out on their own and grow back (that is why your pubic hair and body hair does not grow beyond a certain length). A new hair can become ingrown just like a shaved hair can, although it happens less frequently.
Avatar n tn What you are describing is normal coloring as most women have dark skin in the pubic/genital area. The bump could be an ingrown hair or cyst. Again, check with your GYN doctor to be safe.
Avatar f tn My husband believes that this was a loose hair that got trapped but I noticed a follicle at the end of the strand, which leads me to believe that the hair actually grew up there. I am thankful that removal was pain free, but am dreading another occurrence.
Avatar f tn A rash has formed that NEVER seems to go away. (I also do laser hair removal and that could irritate it, BUT, I have never had such a swollen, red lip) The last bump hurt when I touched it, it throbbed, itched, burned, tingled, this has been going on for weeks now. I pierced the bump, blood came out. I squeezed the bump it became bigger but never forms as a cold sore. I itched it and then kind of touched my lip on the side, a new bump formed there that itched and swelled up. STILL no leakage.
Avatar n tn --- In the past at the age of 17-18 my parents paid for laser-hair removal sessions (6 total spanning over 16 months, separated roughly 8 -12 weeks apart) and found the treatment to have minimal effect, actually disfiguring or denaturing the appearance with constant irritation, ingrowns, and acne (that is otherwise unheard of on my skin) rather than thinning it out to something approximating 'normal' or 'presentable'.
Avatar n tn You might want to try a different way of hair removal too. waxing might be better for you or even consider laser hair removal. You can also just trim hair shorter with a body hair trimmer instead of taking it all off. There are also many post bikini area shaving products out there too. The skin in the genital area is very sensitive and needs treated with extra tlc!!!!
Avatar f tn A little back story... I receive laser hair removal treatments for my Brazilian area.. the area between my legs - the crease where my panty line is - is sometimes difficult to treat. I replaced my razor and tried to shave very close there, as my hair was prickly. I know when I shaved, I irritated the area. The next day (this past Thursday) my boyfriend (we've been monogamous since May) gave me a Christmas gift early, a new vibrator.

Avatar m tn If you do continue to shave, look for post shaving products to try to give the sensitive genital skin some extra tlc. Other hair removal options too like waxing and laser hair removal to consider too. Sounds like you either are getting a shaving rash afterwards or even a mild folliculitis. Avoid sex when you have rashes in case it's triggering shedding of herpes just to err on the side of caution. as far as pregnancy, your hsv1 genitally isn't an issue until delivery.
Avatar f tn However, I have a couple questions. I've been getting laser hair removal in my genital area, and I don't know if I should continue with this until MC has cleared or does it matter? Will laser make it spread? I read not to do electrolysis so I'm just wondering. Should I tell the nurse who does the procedure what I have? Also, I read that MC can take 3-6 mths to clear, but in some cases up to 4 years! Under what circumstances would it take up to 4 years to clear?

Avatar m tn If shaving continues to cause you problems, consider alternatives such as waxing or chemical hair removal or even laser removal. if things do not improve please see a professional health care provider.
