Laser Hair Removal: Safe in Pregnancy?


Many expectant mothers wonder if it’s safe to undergo laser hair removal during pregnancy. While the convenience of long-term hair reduction is appealing, concerns about safety for both the mother and the baby are paramount. This article explores the considerations, potential risks, and expert opinions on getting laser hair removal while pregnant.


What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal involves using concentrated beams of light to target and destroy hair follicles. This procedure is effective for reducing unwanted hair growth on various parts of the body, offering a long-term solution compared to shaving or waxing.

Changes During Pregnancy


Hormonal Changes Affecting Hair Growth

  • Pregnancy often brings hormonal fluctuations that can increase hair growth, particularly in areas like the face, belly, and breasts.
  • These hormonal changes can make hair removal more of a concern for pregnant women.

Skin Sensitivity During Pregnancy

  • Pregnant women may experience increased skin sensitivity and pigmentation changes, making the skin more susceptible to irritation from laser treatments.

Post-Pregnancy Laser Hair Removal


When It’s Safe to Resume Treatments

  • Most experts suggest waiting until after childbirth and breastfeeding before resuming laser hair removal treatments.
  • This allows the body to return to its normal hormonal state and reduces the risk of skin sensitivity issues.

Tips for Post-Pregnancy Care

  • Start with a consultation to discuss any changes in your skin or hair growth.
  • Follow post-treatment care guidelines to ensure the best results and avoid irritation.


While the convenience of laser hair removal is tempting, it’s best to avoid this procedure during pregnancy due to the lack of research and potential risks. Opt for safer hair removal methods and consult your healthcare provider for personalized advice. After pregnancy, you can resume laser treatments with peace of mind, knowing you’re prioritizing the health and safety of both you and your baby.

Got 3 facials done here. My skin never felt better. I came in for my first facial and had pretty bad acne. The next week after the facial everything started to disappear. The facials were done really gently and calmly. It was amazing. Loved going there and definitely would go again. My skin is super clear now and this is without exaggerations. I never felt better.
