Gresham Locals Get High-Quality Laser Hair Removal Services With Laser Smooth Company

If you’ve struggled with the repetitive chore of shaving or waxing, then laser hair removal may be the answer you’ve been looking for. Laser Smooth Company is proud to bring top-notch laser hair removal services to Gresham. What is laser hair removal? Laser hair removal is a hair removal procedure that uses pulses of light to destroy hair follicles and prevents them from growing back. Since hair grows in cycles, to completely eliminate hair growth, 6-8 treatments (at intervals of 8-12 weeks) are needed to achieve the desired result. This is the only method of hair removal that offers permanent results and is an effective and cost-efficient alternative to waxing and shaving.

Can I Do Laser Hair Removal If I Am Pregnant?

Laser Smooth Company does not perform laser hair removal on pregnant clients. In fact, doctors do not recommend that pregnant persons receive laser hair removal while pregnant.

The effects of laser procedures were studied in pregnant rats, and the results showed adverse effects. These studies were published in the book, Lasers In Gynecology by Gunther Bastert and Diethelm Wallwiener. The US FDA approved laser hair removal and skin treatments in the 1990s. Since then, however, there are no research studies showing or concluding that the treatments have adverse effects on pregnant or non-pregnant women.

In the absence of research and due to the non-availability of information on the negative consequences on a pregnant woman and her growing baby, most doctors and clinicians suggest postponing laser hair removal procedures until after the delivery. It is not good to be on the wrong side of caution, especially during pregnancy.

If you’re considering laser hair removal and are pregnant, it is best to wait until after the delivery date.
