Lamictal and laser hair removal

I am on 200mg of lamictal and am keen to try ipl hair removal. Beautician thinks the lamictal in my system might cause bad side effects such as blistering. Has anyone had experiences with this hair removal treatment whilst taking this med?

I am on 200mg lamictal per day as well as methylphenidate (ritalin).  I got laser hair removal on my face. It was a very positive experience.  No seizures (my diagnosis is JME and I get grand mals) whatsoever and no photosensitive reactions. Hope this helps you in your decision. I think it's well worth it!
