Why should I consider leg hair removal?
Hair-free legs just feel good. Women know that smooth legs look sleek when revealed in a mini skirt, shorts, or bathing suit. Many women (and their partners) find hair-free legs attractive and sexy, plus you don’t have to worry about hair snagging on pantyhose and leggings.
Men may choose leg hair removal, too. This improves their aerodynamics in sports such as swimming and cycling or just lets their muscles pop in bodybuilding competitions. More hair isn’t always “manly” either. In an informal survey done by a women’s magazine, 22% of women said they like their man with smooth legs.
How does laser hair removal work for leg hair?
With laser hair removal, you can ditch the razor for good and cancel your future waxing appointments.
The laser energy penetrates your outer layer of skin to target the pigment-containing hair follicles beneath the dermis. The heat from the laser renders the follicles unable to produce hair, so growth ceases.
You don’t have to worry any longer about keeping up with the stubble on your legs that creeps up just a few days after shaving. The Cynosure Elite+ laser works on every skin color and just about every type of hair.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
You don’t have to have substantial hair growth prior to your appointment. You can shave before coming in for laser leg hair removal, but do avoid waxing. You need the hair follicle intact for the laser to work.
Do avoid tanning in the sun or a booth for about two weeks prior to your appointment, as tanned skin doesn’t respond well to laser hair removal treatments. And, although you may be eager to show off your smooth legs after a session – keep them out of the sun, too. Laser-treated skin is temporarily extra sensitive to ultraviolet rays.
How many sessions will I need for successful leg hair removal?
The number of sessions you’ll need to achieve permanently smooth legs depends on the density of your hair. You may see a noticeable reduction in hair growth in as few as three sessions. Hair grows in cycles, so multiple sessions are necessary to catch follicles in a growth phase when they’re ready for destruction.
How long does a session of laser hair removal take and does it hurt?
Expect each session for your legs to take about 25 minutes. The legs do have a large surface area, so you may notice a sharp prickling sensation as the laser passes over your skin. Most people tolerate the sessions well, however.
