Can lasers such as Intense Pulse Light and skin rejuvenation lasers that go 1320 nanometers cause an inflammation in the thyroid if the energy is delivered to the entire neck area? Could this inflammation and damage to the tissue cause lymphocytes to attack thyroid tissue thereby producing antibodies? Rita
