Can I have laser hair removal when I have my period?
Yes, you can have laser hair removal when you have your period.
If you are having treatment on the extended bikini area we would ask you to use a tampon for hygiene purposes. If you do not use tampons we would ask that you reschedule your treatment until after your period has finished. All other areas are fine to treat as normal and this will not affect your treatment in anyway.
Some clients may find laser slightly more painful if a session is due the week before their period is due so they may choose to schedule their appointment after their period has finished. This completely varies from person to person, so please let us know and we will schedule your treatments around times and dates that suit you.
You also may notice that your skin may be a little sensitive around the time of your period, some clients notice that the temporary side effects of laser ie redness, slight swellings around the hair follicles may last a little longer but these generally subside over a period of 24-48 hours.
Please don’t be embarrassed to contact us with any questions about this, being a dedicated hair removal clinic this is a very common occurrence so their is no need for you to feel uncomfortable in any way. Having your period should not interfere with your course of laser hair removal treatment however if you would prefer to re arrange your appointment just let us know and we will do this for you. It is so important to us that you feel absolutely at ease when you are having treatments with us.
