A 20-year-old female asked:

Can i laser my face (hair removal) while using epiduo?

Not recommended: Laser hair removal treatments often cause the skin to become red and irritated, similar to a sunburn. Epiduo causes the skin to be photosensitive, or more susceptible to burn. I recommend stopping the epiduo for several days before treatment and until the laser reaction resolves.
