Nicked with a Razor before Laser Hair Removal
Mar 23, 2007

I started Laser Hair Removal today and the esthetician used a razor that was placed on her workstation to shave the area before commencing. While shaving, she nicked me but I have no idea if this was used or a new razor. How worried should I be and should I get tested?

Response from Dr. McGovern

This is probably not a risk and I would not pursue testing.

Epivir or Adefovir
HBV and others
