The summer sees a chance for us to get our pins out once more and catch some rays, but the hassle of constantly shaving or waxing can become a real chore at this time of year. Last week, pint sized pop icon Kylie Minogue displayed her flawless legs at the British Summer Time festival, but is there a simpler way to get legs that rival Ms. Minogue’s?
“For those wanting a long term solution to their body hair issues laser hair removal can be a great option. Many stars and members of the public opt for the procedure at this time of year as an answer to their time consuming hair removal routine,” says Dr. Alice Hudson Peacock, a cosmetic doctor at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic.
Laser hair removal is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that aims to provide patients with a long term solution to their unwanted body hair. The treatment harnesses the technology of the Alexandrite laser, which works by penetrating the hair with high energy frequencies that identify the pigmentation of the hair to effectively destroy the follicle, making it highly unlikely that the treated hair will grow back.
“The results achievable with laser hair removal treatment could give you celebrity smooth legs. Patients often report a dramatically improved look and feel to their unwanted body hair.”
“Laser hair removal is not just suitable for the legs but can also be used to treatment other areas like the chin, upper lip, cheeks, arms and back, meaning the treatment can tackle almost any body hair issue a patient may have,” added Dr. Hudson Peacock.
Laser hair removal provides patients with long term relief from body hair. We all know how time consuming traditional hair removal methods can be, so much so that it can feel like you spend most of your summer tackling your unwanted body hair! Laser hair removal puts a stop to this and allows patients to enjoy the sunny weather once more.
Following treatment the skin may appear red and irritated, similar to the effects of sunburn. This should subside after a couple of days and over the following month the treated hair will fall out, leaving you with a smooth and flawless result.
“If you are considering laser hair removal this summer it is important that you have realistic ideas of the results that laser treatment can provide you with,” said Dr. Hudson-Peacock.
“Laser hair removal relies on the pigmentation within the hair in order to destroy the follicle, so the treatment is often more effective on patients with darker hair. This isn’t too much of an issue in my experience as many of the patients that struggle with noticeable body hair issues are darker haired.”
Dr. Alice Hudson Peacock concluded:
