Leg laser depilation

Leg laser depilation: Wear a dress without thinking about your hair!

Today, there are many techniques to go hunting for hair. Razor, wax, depilator or depilatory cream allow you to have soft and smooth legs. However, depilation can sometimes be a real chore.

Every year, thousands of people resort to laser hair removal in order to have perfectly depilated legs in summer and winter. Let’s take a look at this technique, how it works and its price.

Leg depilation: the technique

There are several different areas for laser leg hair removal:

  • The calves and shins: the hair is thick and dark and therefore very receptive to the laser. The skin on this area is quite thin and some pain may be felt during hair removal.
  • Knees: the hair is quite fine and light, so hair removal will be longer in this area.
  • The thighs: at the level of the thighs, the hairs are also fine and very clear, in some cases, it can be a light down which should not be treated to avoid a stimulation of the hair.

Leg depilation: the session

It usually takes between 6 and 8 sessions of leg hair removal.

Each session is spaced about 8 to 12 weeks apart and lasts about 20 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated and your hairiness.

Before a leg hair removal, a first consultation with the doctor is carried out and allows him/her to learn more about your history and your expectations regarding the procedure. He or she will also examine your skin and hair to determine the intensity of the laser but also to detect any contraindications that could prevent you from performing laser hair removal.

On the day of the leg hair removal, the practitioner takes the time to examine the skin and hair on your legs again. He or she will then check the shaving of the legs and, if necessary, may have to shave them himself or herself.

Once the checks are done, he gives you a pair of protective glasses that you must wear. Then, he delimits the treatment area with a white pencil to avoid areas where hair removal is not necessary. He will then proceed with the laser test on a small part of your skin and check the intensity of the laser.

Finally, he scans the area with a handpiece. The cryogenic system of the device avoids pain and redness thanks to the diffusion of a cold liquid during the operation.

At the end of your session, the doctor applies a moisturizing and soothing cream to your legs to soothe redness and pain.

The results

As the sessions progress, the hair grows back less and less. At the end of your leg and thigh epilation, about 90% of your hair will no longer grow back unless there is a hormonal change, such as during menopause. This is why maintenance sessions should be scheduled every year.

In the vast majority of cases, leg and thigh hair removal offers patients more than satisfactory results.
