A Guide to Laser Hair Removal for Your Legs
After the female underarm, the female leg is the most commonly plucked, waxed, shaved, depilated, threaded, bleached and sugared area of the body! It is unsurprising that laser hair removal for the legs is quite a commonly sought procedure. If you’re looking forward to walking straight past the shaving aids section in the supermarket for the rest of your life, check out our guide to laser hair removal for your legs first.
Laser hair removal for your legs
Most of us are quite used to leg hair removal – but there are still some little extras to consider with laser hair removal for your legs:
•Pricing for your legs is significantly different to other popular areas, simply because of the time that a treatment takes.
•If budget is an issue, however, having only your lower legs and knees done is a popular and quite workable option.
•Summer is a better time to have your laser hair removal done, so that your post-laser skin isn’t irritated by constantly wearing long pants.
•For older men and women, laser hair removal on the legs can stimulate new collagen production and help offset the loose skin that comes with aging!
•Many clinics promote IPL hair removal as an equivalent option to laser hair removal. Unfortunately it is not. IPL treatments can cause significant burns and scarring, and fail to achieve any permanent hair reduction.
How does it feel?
Given that most of us have developed pretty high pain tolerance on our legs through waxing, laser hair removal for legs is usually a walk in the park. Our Candela machines all have Dynamic Cooling Devices attached for a much more comfy experience, also – but if you prefer to have topical anaesthetic, we’re happy to help.
How long does it take?
Laser hair removal for the bikini area is generally quick, though it does depend on how much of your bikini area you ask to have treated. Obviously, cleaning up stray hairs that want a little sunshine when you’re swimming will take less time than a full Brazilian treatment.
Leg laser hair removal pricing
Laser hair removal for the legs looks like a pretty big investment – but because the legs are such a popular area to have treated, many clinics have specials on full leg laser hair removal. Keep your eye out and you could get free underarm or upper lip treatments!
