Laser Hair Removal and Thyroid Damage

Laser Hair Removal Treatment. First on Lip and then Bikini line, later adding inner thigh, toes and underarms. The hair does seem to lessen with each treatment.

I believe Laser Hair Removal can lead to Thyroid issues. No One in my family has thyroid issues. Mine didn't start giving me trouble until I've been receiving Laser treatments for 3 1/2 months. The thyroid became enlarged 1 1/2 to 2 weeks after the first underarm treatment. I believe I have thrown something off and am hoping that my dr. can confirm. I think there is a link that just hasn't been "medically" proven as of yet. Please look into this...
You are absolutely right! It happened to me! It's happened to other people. As a matter of fact, I know a woman who had had sono on her thyroid before IPL that showed no problems whatsoever.
Not long after IPL she had thyroid nodes and hypo symptoms.
I have nodes and hypo symptoms myself. I never had those symptoms before IPL. I had fractional laser and IPL and I think either one could be the culprit.
