ThermiVa and laser hair removal

Yes, it is completely safe to have a laser hair removal in the same area after ThermiVa. These are 2 completely different technologies that do not interfere with each other. Good luck.

Yes totally safe

Thank you fro your question and yes I do not see any reason why you cannot undergo laser hair removal post TheriVa treatment.This is what makes these non surgical lasers so attractive for patients.  They offer effective treatment with minimal downtime or risks.

Safe for hair removal after Thermiva

Yes it will be safe to have laster hair removal two weeks after a Thermiva treatment.  There is no downtime after a Thermiva treatment, and laser hair removal is not shown to affect the results either way.  If you personally feel comfortable since having Thermiva and are ready for hair removal, go for it.

ThermiVa is a great treatment in that there are really no activity restrictions following a treatment. Laser hair removal 2 weeks after a ThermiVa treatment is perfectly acceptable. In fact, they can even be performed the same depending on your comfort level and where the laser hair removal is being performed.
I hope this answer is helpful! Best of luck.

Laser Hair Removal and ThermiVa

Hi and thank you for your question!

Yes, it is totally safe to have ThermiVa and proceed with laser hair removal treatments. There are no contraindication to these procedures being done together. I think waiting 1-2 weeks between is a reasonable amount of time.

Laser Hair Removal After ThermiVa

Yes, it is perfectly safe to have laser hair removal 2 weeks after ThermiVa.  There are no restrictions after a ThermiVa treatment.  If you are having some sensitivity after the treatment, wait a few days.  But since the hair removal is 2 weeks later, you should be fine.  Good luck!
