Question:

Is hair removal with medlite safe for pregnant women?

Answer:

It is a safe treatment, even in pregnant women, however, the policy of our clinic is to not treat pregnant women with laser. Despite the low risk, the stakes are high (there is a baby on-board!) so we don’t treat pregnant women.
