Does Laser Treatment Affect Fasting?

27 April, 2021
Q As-Salamu alaykum. I have question regarding laser treatment over back for acne or skin scar problem during Ramadan fasting. Does it affect fasting?

Answer

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.


In this fatwa:

Ointments that are applied to the skin before or after using laser treatment have no effect on fasting.


Answering your question, the Fatwa Center at www.islamwe.net states:

Laser is a photonic band and it has no effect on fasting because it does not nourish the body, and it is not of the same effect as food or drink. Ointments that are applied to the skin before or after using laser treatment have no effect on fasting also because they are not a nutrient (they do not nourish the body).

Allah Almighty knows best.
