laser hair removal
Hi everyone! I'm 21 weeks today, and I'm wondering if i can continue doing  laser hair removal during my pregnancy.  The technician doing it for me is certified, and she claims it's perfectly safe. She herself had it done while pregnant 9 years ago. Can anyone help me with some advice?

Any reputable company would NOT continue treatment while pregnant. I also get treatments and the second I told them I was pregnant they immediately rescheduled until after I have my baby. The reasoning is because there are no studies done to show the effects laser hair removal has on the baby. Since there are no studies, we don't know if it is okay or not so most companies (ones that care about your well being) would refuse treatments.

common sense would lead me to assume it is not dangerous especially if on other areas of the body, because there is no clinical data to prove this (as it would be unethical to carry out such a trial) there isn't proof to say it is safe... or proof to say it isn't.  Companies want to avoid being sued and nowadays you can sue people for anything so they will not carry it out.  I don't think it is a danger, people do far more harmful things to their bodies during pregnancy
