Thanks for your query.Laser hair removal is contraindicated on acne skin. It is advisable to treat persistent acne before undergoing laser hair removal. Hope it helps.

Laser hair removal is not contraindicated for patients with acne or acne scarring, this treatment could actually improve acne by the laser treatment. Please consult with a laser expert. Best, Dr. Emer
