Are your legs ready for shorts this summer? How about bikinis? Maybe you’re not as confident about showing off your legs as you’d like to be, but there are a few things you can do to get them looking sexy by the time summer rolls in. Summer means less clothing coverage for issues like spider veins, and it also entails lots of leg shaving if you intend to dress according to the season. If you are self-conscious about unsightly spider veins or want to eliminate the need to shave almost daily this summer, you’ve got some options at Cosmetic Laser CentersSM:
Laser Hair Removal: Especially if you have dark hair, shaving is a daily task during short and swimsuit season. Laser hair removal is a fantastic option for up to 80% permanent hair reduction on the legs. This treatment targets the hair in the follicle, interrupting the growth cycle. Cosmetic Laser CentersSM uses Lumenis® LightSheerTM which is a diode laser that reduces unwanted hair virtually anywhere on the body permanently.
Achieving smoother legs usually takes 6 treatments but some require more or less sessions. Laser hair removal also requires you to avoid sun exposure before and after treatment, so to be ready for summer, you’ll want to schedule treatments in early winter or early spring – the sooner the better if you want to appreciate results for summer 2017.
Getting a late start? Even if you are only able to get in a few sessions, you will likely appreciate some results before the summer season officially begins. Then you can complete your sessions in the fall or early winter. Call Cosmetic Laser CentersSM at 724-935-4200. Summer will be here before you know it, so schedule your consultation to see if you are a candidate today!
Spider Vein Treatments: Spider veins are small, red or purple blood vessels that are visible through the skin, typically appearing on the legs and face. Using a treatment called Sclerotherapy, spider veins in the leg are injected with a sclerosant that causes the vessels to become irritated and collapse. These vessels, now irritated after being injected, eventually turn into scar tissue that will be reabsorbed by the body and fade away. This minimally painful treatment usually takes about 30 minutes and will need to be repeated over several months for optimal results. Sclerotherapy is a safe, widely used and requires little to no recovery time and minimal restrictions post treatment.
So, if you’d like to show off smooth, flawless legs this summer, don’t wait until it’s time to put on those short shorts. Getting your legs in the best shape possible does take some time, so you’ll want to schedule treatments soon.
