3 Ways to Get Your Silkiest Legs for Spring

When it comes to your legs, all you want is smooth, soft skin without stubble, razor nicks, or pain. And to be honest, you also want your time back. Those hours spent tweezing, waxing, and shaving unwanted hair really add up. It seems that, for years, you have been trying to find the most effective method for achieving sexy, clean-shaven legs. After all, don’t you wish you could have the silky, smooth legs that celebrities always seem to flaunt?

Do You Really Need a Daily Shaving Routine?

Your current daily routine probably consists primarily of shaving your legs, followed by some exfoliation to buff away dead, dry skin. Then you might then follow this by dragging that razor over your legs one more time for a closer shave.

Next, you apply liberal amounts of moisturizer to soothe your legs from any itching, prevent razor burn or razor bumps, and, hopefully, prevent ingrown hairs as well. 

Each time you go through this routine, you suspect that it’s perhaps the least efficient method of hair removal, because the next morning, you’ll be repeating the process all over again to get rid of the prickly hair regrowth.

There Is a Better Way to Get Your Silkiest Legs for Spring!

You know it’s extremely unlikely that celebrities rely on a razor alone to keep their legs free of fuzz. After all, hair removal treatments like shaving, tweezing, and waxing can be incredibly painful and tedious. 

Oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Ritacca can help you with a nonsurgical Candela GentleLase Laser treatment, shown in multiple clinical studies to be one of the most effective laser treatments on the market. You can find out more about this by contacting him at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery and Medspa in Austin, TX.

Steps to Follow to Get Your Silkiest Legs

  1. Shave before your treatment. It is best to shave your hair the morning of your appointment, or at the latest, the night before. The laser’s energy needs some hair to damage the follicle. Of course, this means the treatment is more effective on darker hair with some pigment.
  2. Skip other maintenance. Make sure you avoid any other treatment that might affect the hair follicles. Waxing and threading, like plucking, removes the entire hair follicle, thus preventing the laser from being able to target them. It’s also essential to avoid tanning, as this can cause hypopigmentation.
  3. Set a schedule. You will need to set up a schedule of treatments to allow some hair growth between sessions. Since your hair doesn’t all grow at the same rate, you will need multiple treatments to reduce hair growth in each area permanently. With the different treatments, you are targeting different hair follicles in their growth cycle.

As you follow this advice, you’ll find it useful to know that most people experience very few side effects from this treatment. There is usually redness and some swelling, but this should only last for a couple of days.
