The laser works to target your hair follicles to destroy them but it cant tell the difference between pigmented hairs and pigmented skin.  During pregnancy it is common to have hormonally triggered types of hyperpigmentation of the skin which is when the skin becomes darker in patches and if these areas falsely absorb the energy from the laser instead of the hair follicle it can result in a burn or discolouration of the skin.

Waxing is not unsafe to do in pregnancy but beware that it may be a lot more painful than normal.  This is due your body producing more blood and fluids to support your growing baby.  Some salons will refuse to let you go ahead with waxing of the bikini area in the first trimester.
