Yes you can safely go ahead with the laser hair reduction. No interaction between Lyme disease and Laser Hair reduction

Wellcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
Lasers can be taken safely even if you have lyme ds...Since you said it is on your breast ,you should get your hormonal profile also done .In general multiple sessions are required for laser hair reduction...approx 6-8 sessions at one month interval.And if your hormones are high then probably you might require more number of sessions to get good result.
take care,

Thank you for your response. Its just that because of the lyme and other co infections Ive always been ultra sensitive to things. I Just am afraid of having another problem I suppose. .. As i was diagnosed late stages of it ( like over 10 years of infection).
The woman who worked at a clinic said somthing like if you have any condition that effects your immune you shouldnt get the lasor due to complications with healing?

I know I need to sort out the hormones but i think when the lyme is gone they will be sorted. I have issues taking the anti androgen med they gave me, makes me not feel good.
