Get Smooth, Hair-Free Legs With Laser Hair Removal

Winter is the perfect time to let your hair-removal regimen relax a little as you can hide your legs under long pants. All too soon, however, the warmer months will be upon us, which means baring those legs again. If you’d like to ditch the razor and painful waxing appointments, why not give laser hair removal a try?

At Humble Cardiology Associates, Dr. Madaiah Revana and our team offer an extensive suite of services that cover everything from your heart health to aesthetics. Included in this impressive mix are our cutting-edge laser hair-removal treatments, which banish unwanted body hair right down to the follicles.

And if you start now, you’ll greet summer with smooth, hair-free legs.

The power of laser

Did you know that the average woman shaves her legs 11,500 times during her life? Now imagine that we can permanently reduce the hair on your legs by 80% in just three treatments.

To accomplish this, we turn to Candela’s Gentle® Hair-Removal system, which delivers short bursts of energy into your hair follicles to prevent them from producing more hair. The heat from the laser energy destroys the hair follicles, permanently disabling them.

While we rely on heat to do the work, rest assured that the technology is designed for your comfort with a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™. This system delivers bursts of liquid cryogen to cool the surface of your skin throughout your quick treatments.

Get ready for summer — your laser timeline

The reason why we recommend that you start now on laser hair removal for your legs is that we need to treat the area several times — usually three. At any given time, your hair is in one of three growth phases:

To ensure that we address all of the hair follicles in your treatment area, we space your treatments apart to allow time for all of your follicles to transition into the active phase, where they can be destroyed.

We usually perform the treatments themselves in under an hour, depending on the size of the area we’re targeting. There's no downtime after each session, which means you won’t skip a beat in your routine (though we do ask that you keep the treated area out of the sun).

Preparing for laser hair removal

To prepare for your laser hair-removal treatments, we ask that you avoid anything that may darken your skin so that we can easily spot your follicles. We also ask that you avoid any hair-removal method that pulls the hairs out of the follicles, such as waxing. If you want to shave, that’s OK as you’re only cutting the hair.

Your results

As you progress through your treatments, your unwanted hair gradually falls out, leaving a smooth surface behind. After several weeks, you should realize your optimal results, just in time for summer!
