The laser used in hair removal doesn't usually cause herpes outbreaks.
Not all doctors prescribe a prophylactic oral antiviral medication for those getting the hair removal laser. The treatment doesn't damage or break the skin, so it doesn't usually stimulate a recurrence. If you have a history of genital herpes or cold sores on the area you are working on, it would be advisable to take the medication as a precaution. If a patient has an active cold sore before the procedure, they should reschedule until it is totally healed. Discuss everything with your doctor at the time of the consultation.
