Ready for Summer? Legs Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal has enjoyed substantial popularity and is presently the second most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the U.S. following botulinum toxin injections Laser-assisted hair removal is the most efficient method of long-term hair removal currently available. Now we all enjoy a smooth, silky, stubble-free legs without the pain of shaving or waxing!

Laser and light-based techniques rely on the process of selective photothermolysis. The selective absorption of red and near-infrared wavelengths by melanin in the hair shaft and follicular epithelium confines thermal damage to the hair follicles and, to a point, limits the untoward diffusion of excess thermal energy to the surrounding tissue. Laser hair removal was first described in 1987 in an experiment to remove rabbit eyelashes with an argon laser. Now several hair removal systems have been shown to be effective in this setting: ruby laser (694nm), alexandrite laser (755nm), diode laser (800nm), intense pulsed light source (590 to 1200nm) and the neodymium:yttrium-aluminium-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser (1064nm), with or without the application of carbon suspension. The parameters used with each laser system vary considerably. All these lasers work on the principle of selective photothermolysis, with the melanin in the hair follicles as the chromophobe. Regardless of the type of laser used multiple treatments are necessary to achieve satisfactory results. Hair clearance, after repeated treatments, of 30 to 50% is generally reported 6 months after the last treatment. Patients with dark colored skin (Fitzpatrick IV and V) can be treated effectively with comparable morbidity to those with lighter colored skin. Although there is no obvious advantage of one laser system over another in terms of treatment outcome (except the Nd:YAG laser, which is found to be less efficacious, but more suited to patients with darker colored skin), laser parameters may be important when choosing the ideal laser for a patient. The benefits are endless as it will keep your skin soft and smooth and without hair you no longer have to worry about sharp stubble and razor burn.

hairs around your legs and knees that always seem to pop up at the most inconvenient moments.
