Can Laser Hair Removing on the Private Parts Cause Hemorrhoids by Any Chance?

I did 2 treatments so far and had hemorrhoids after each, and I have never had them before.

Hemorrhoids and perianal laser hair removal


There is no scientific reason for developing hemorrhoids after getting laser hair removal around the perianal area. The only possibility I can think is increased anal sphincter tightening as a response to the irritation from the laser leading to constipation which can cause hemorrhoids. I would suggest increasing fiber in diet and take fiber supplements for a few days before and after your laser treatments.
