I have had my bikini line laser hair removal in the past and just found out I am 6 weeks pregnant. Can I carry on with my treatment?
Laser Hair Removal if 6 Weeks Pregnant?

Laser hair removal when pregnant
While there is no real proof that it is harmful, I would not recommend treating your bikini line when you are pregnant. Although these lasers do no penetrate that deeply into the skin, I don't think anyone really knows for sure if there would be any problems so I think it is best to wait until after delivery to resume treatment.
