Diabetics and laser


#1

I have a general question:

Is hair removal of legs a problem when you get a laser treatment and your diabetic? I ask that because diabetics may not use rotary epilators to remove hair on the legs. Diabetics could get complications if they use rotary epilators to remove hair on the legs.


#2

I would urge anyone with diabetes or with circulatory problems in their lower extremities to discuss hair removal options with their physician. It is possible that any type of epilation that removes hairs roots and all could result in side effects which take longer to heal in diabetics, or could even lead to complications in those who are susceptible to wounds.
