Effect of Bikini Laser Hair Reduction on fertility
There is no scientific evidence that shows that the energy delivered during laser hair reduction in the bikini area penetrates deeply through the various layers of tissue- skin, fat, muscle, etc to affect the ovaries in any way.
To be thorough, do consult with you obstetrician to get their opinion.
Laser hair removal
We do not have evidence that energy generated by a laser device for hair removal would interfere with your baby's development. The energy only reaches the dermis of the skin, and not even the fat and especially not the muscle below.
