How safe is laser treatment for hair removal?
Q: I have hair on my nipple and the lower abdomen. I don't have any other problem. My periods are very regular. Since 2 years I am taking permanent hair removal laser treatment. I have taken around 12 sitting. The hair have reduced by almost 75%. I got married recently. I would like to know how safe is it? Can I go for some more sittings? I am planning to have a child. Is it dangerous to breast feed the child after undergoing laser? Is there any chance of getting breast cancer in the future?
A:Laser Hair removal is very safe and you can take as many sittings as you may require. You can continue with more sittings. There is no harm in starting a family. However, I would suggest that you find out the cause of excessive hair. At times, excessive ovarian hormone causes increase in hair growth in unwanted places. Please consult a Gynaec Endocrinologist.
