    Is laser treatment safe for pubic hair removal?

I was recently diagnosed with lichen sclerosis. I find it difficult to see where to apply the strong cortisone cream I have been prescribed due to my pubic hair. Given that this condition may require treatment for the rest of my life, I am considering having all of my pubic hair lasered away permanently. Do you think this would impact negatively on this condition, to have laser on the skin where I have the lichen sclerosis, as well as everywhere else?

Hi,

Permanent removal of pubic hair may not be possible. Do talk to a dermatologist regarding this option.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
