Do you hate dealing with the stubble you get a day after you shave? Or the painful sting of waxing strips? If so, there’s another solution. You can achieve smooth, silky legs with a combination of non-invasive treatments.
Even better, the results can be long-lasting or even permanent. With IPL hair removal and BTL X-Wave for cellulite, you can have sexy, touchable legs.
Hair Removal Options
When it comes to hair removal, you have several options. Shaving is the most common and the fastest, but comes with downfalls like ingrown hairs. Also, hair tends to grow back in just two to three days after a shave. Depilatory or hair remover creams are also available without a prescription. However, misuse of these products can result in skin burns. Some individuals also experience allergic reactions or sensitivity to the creams.
Waxing is another option if you want to achieve hairless legs for a longer period of time. However, hot wax can be messy and will likely leave some hairs behind. If the wax is too hot, you can also succumb to burns. While waxing is effective for smaller areas like the eyebrows or upper lip, waxing your entire legs can be downright painful. Waxing the legs can also leave the skin temporarily tender and irritated.
If you want to know how to remove hair without the hassles of shaving, creams, or waxing, try IPL hair removal. This permanent hair reduction option is a form of light therapy that beams a highly-concentrated light into hair follicles to destroy the hair. This precision hair remover is fast, long-lasting, and virtually painless.
Laser hair removal is another option for permanent hair reduction as it effectively treats an area in just seconds as it delivers laser light energy to hundreds of hair follicles in a large area which damages the bulge and bulb, disabling the hair growth.
Consult a skin specialist to know which hair removal procedure is suitable for your skin type. You can continue to undergo treatments until your hair reduces growing.
How to get rid of Cellulite
The next step to smooth, silky legs after hair removal is cellulite reduction. Cellulite can make the legs take on an unattractive dimpled look and the dreadful “cottage cheese” effect.
BTL X-Wave is the latest solution for stubborn cellulite. This innovative cellulite removal treatment uses FDA-cleared acoustic wave pulses that induce vibrations in the connective tissues, causing them to become tighter and firmer.
X-Wave is especially effective in women, as females have more fat cells than men. These enlarged fat cells can cause excess pressure in the tissues, causing cellulite to increase. X-Wave helps to break down fat deposits which reduce the appearance of dimpling on the skin. Many patients have also experienced an overall reduction in circumference of the treated body regions.
While each patient is different, the X-Wave treatment typically takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete. Before starting the procedure, a contact gel is applied to the treatment area to ensure that all acoustic sound waves are properly introduced into the body without energy loss. Depending on the severity of cellulite, some patients may require between 6 to 10 sessions performed 2 to 3 times per week.
