Are you treating your bikini area with laser, but not sure how laser hair removal works during a period? Inevitably laser hair removal can fall on the same time as your period may be due. Or sometime periods can be unreliable and all of a sudden it starts on the day of your treatment. And of course for many patients their period are irregular and impossible to track. So what happens if you already booked your laser hair removal treatment for the same day?
Laser hair removal during your period
Ladies, the good news is that periods are not a medical contra indication to the laser treatment. However it may be more uncomfortable and you prefer to reschedule to a time when you don’t feel conscious and worried about an overflow.
Our bodies are all very different, and while some patients don’t experience any discomfort during these few days, others may suffer from severe period cramps, bloating or a heavy flow. So the last thing on your mind will be to also get laser and heat over the area that is already causing you discomfort. So it’s down to your personal preference and what you feel comfortable with. After all the treatment is all about making you feel better in your skin.
Having said that if you feel comfortable enough and happy to wear a tampon we can of course carry out the treatment as usual and your practitioner at Skin Perfection will always make you feel at ease during your treatment.
