Foot laser depilation: how to remove hair on the toes?

In women, the hair on the feet is not very developed. Nevertheless, especially on the big toe, hair can be bothersome and cause complexes, especially in the summer. Not very aesthetic, it is not uncommon for some women to decide to resort to laser hair removal of the feet to get rid of these small hairs permanently. Let’s take stock of this technique, how it works and its price.

Foot depilation: the technique

Laser hair removal is a technique that aims to remove hair in an almost definitive manner. This technique makes it possible to destroy the hair bulb by heating it with a beam of light. Attracted by melanin, the laser energy is transformed into heat which will destroy the hair bulb and transform its structure into scar tissue, thus preventing regrowth.

Hair on the feet, especially in women, can have several causes:

  • Heredity: in very brown or Mediterranean type women, the hair on the feet is generally very developed.
  • Hormones: stopping taking the pill, pregnancy or the menopause can cause hair to appear on the feet.
  • Certain pathologies of the hair system such as hirsutism or hypertrichosis can lead to the appearance of hair on areas that are usually hairless.

Foot depilation: the session

In general, it takes between 4 and 6 sessions of laser hair removal of the feet to obtain an optimal result. Nevertheless, the number of sessions is determined by the doctor according to the amount of hair on your feet.

Each session lasts approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

It takes between 4 and 6 weeks between each session to allow time for the hair to grow back visibly.

Before your first foot hair removal session, a first consultation with the specialist is necessary so that he can learn more about your history and detect possible contraindications that could prevent you from having this procedure. He will examine your skin and hair and determine the number of sessions required for your treatment, as well as the intensity of the laser.

The day of the operation :

  • The doctor examines you again to detect any lesions or herpes pimples that could postpone your session until you have recovered.
  • He will also check the shaving of the area to be depilated and will do it himself if necessary.
  • He will give you protective glasses that you must wear throughout the session.
  • He then sets the parameters of the device and performs a test on a small part of your body to check the intensity of the treatment.
  • Then, using a handpiece that emits pulses of light, he scans the treatment area.
  • At the end of the procedure, he applies a soothing cream that will help reduce redness and pain.
