medication and laser hair removal

I am currently taking 25 mg of hydrochlorothiazide per day and am wondering if that will cause any ill effects when having laser hair removal.

What is the medication taken for? What do the side effects on the bottle say? Talk to your doctor to see if the medication will cause problems or not.

Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic, which is a drug that increases the amount of urine you excrete, and as such can make you more sensitive to a laser treatment. You could develop hyperpigmentation (brown spots) or a dermatitis (inflammation of the skin).

Diurectics are just one of many classifications of drugs that can cause photosensitivity following a LASER treatment.
