QUESTION

Laser Hair Removal Damage my Breast Implants?

I grew some hair around the areola after I gave birth. I would like to know if it is safe to have a laser hair remove on this area. I have not heard of hair grow on this area on a woman, so I feel that my problem is isolated. Few years ago, I had breast implants. Now I am considering having laser hair removal and would like know if my implants can be affected by the laser.

ANSWER

Laser Hair Removal and Breast Implants

Thanks for your question There should be no problems with laser hair removal and your implants. It is important to avoid direct laser energy to your incisions for the first 6 months while they heal. Your provider may custom design shielding to avoid your scars if the hair removal area is close. I hope this helps!
