Laser Skin Treatment During Pregnancy?

What should I do before my first laser hair removal treatment?

You should take a few crucial actions to maximize the results of each laser hair removal treatment.

For best results, we ask you to:

  • Shave the area that is to be treated 12-24 hours before your appointment
  • Exfoliate the skin no less than 3 days before treatment
  • Avoid fake tan for 2-4 weeks before your session to prevent undesired outcomes such as burns
  • Do not apply moisturiser, body oil, deodorant, and perfume before your appointment
  • Do not pluck, wax, or epilate the treatment area for 4 weeks
  • Minimise sun exposure two weeks before your appointment
  • Please don’t hesitate to give us a quick call if you have any questions or concerns in the days before your appointment. No matter how insignificant you believe your questions to be, we would be happy to answer them.

    I recently learned that I am seven weeks pregnant, but two weeks ago, I underwent a facial laser treatment for hyperpigmentation. Is the baby healthy?

    Compromised results

    It is common knowledge that hormonal imbalances can lessen the efficiency of laser hair removal and reduction.

    Ordinarily, each laser hair removal procedure follows the natural cycle of your hair growth. The active growth phase is known as the anagen phase, and it is only during this phase that laser hair removal is successful.

    20% of hair is actively growing during the Anagen stage, which is why you require 6-10 treatments, depending on different areas of the body

    But a common side effect of pregnancy is excessive hair growth, and hormones can alter the cycle of your “regular” hair growth.

    This means that if we continued to provide treatments while you were pregnant, you might receive them at the wrong time of the cycle of hair growth.

    This can diminish the long term effects.

    As we mentioned above, our industry is unregulated.

    This implies that unlicensed therapists could administer laser treatments using less expensive, ineffective, and possibly dangerous equipment that increases the sensitivity of the skin to pain during treatment.

    We take the time to explain the technology underlying our systems, assisting clients in comprehending the results of laser hair removal, how it operates, and why the high-quality medical equipment we use is the best available.

    In order to answer your question, I would say that everything depends on the technology and system being used and, of course, on your personal pain threshold.

    In most cases, clients report feeling a slight pinching sensation.

    It’s often described as having the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin. It is not painful.

    Additionally, cutting-edge technology has a cooling feature that lowers the possibility of pain and burns during treatment. This cooling feature renders laser hair removal virtually painless!.
