Laser Hair Removal Will Not Affect Fertility

There is no risk for laser hair removal to be done here – the laser light will not penetrate deep enough for anything bad to happen. The biggest hurdle here is finding someone to do the procedure; some may not feel comfortable treating this area.

The depth of penetration of this light energy should  not be deep enough to penetrate the inner tissues of the testicle. It would be prudent for the doctor to check with the company of the laser they use specifically, in terms of your question before proceeding with your treatment. Different lasers have different wavelengths of visible light.
