6 Common Questions About Leg Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Leg Laser Hair Removal

If you’re tired of shaving or waxing to achieve smooth legs, you’re not alone. This can be especially true for anyone who experiences dark, prickly stubble and ingrown hairs. Embrace the confidence of always being ready for a dress or a swimsuit without stopping to question whether you shaved or not. Laser hair removal is the ultimate solution to all of the inconveniences of temporary hair removal solutions. With laser hair removal, you can permanently remove leg hair and never have to worry about waxing or shaving again.

How Does Leg Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser leg hair removal uses laser light pulses to destroy hair follicles by targeting the melanin selectively. The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the pulse, damaging the follicle enough to slow hair regrowth. The leg hair is first destroyed from underneath the skin and then sheds. After your first treatment, it may look like nothing has happened, but it has. Hair loss and growth naturally occur in cycles, so laser hair removal specifically targets follicles in the new-growth stage. This is why repeated treatments are necessary to target new hair continually.

The technology behind laser hair removal is ever-advancing. The Laser Aesthetic Center prides itself on being at the cutting edge of emerging treatment options. We use several different lasers to accommodate patients of every skin type and tone.

Our Palomar Vectus Laser provides a treatment that is:


The Palomar Vectus Laser’s cooling technique (Advanced Contact Cooling) protects and soothes the epidermis.


This laser incorporates skin-evaluating technology (the only FDA-approved melanin reader) to adjust the laser’s strength and wavelength. Its tone-matching system removes the possibility of human error and tailors the treatment specifically to your skin tone.


The Palomar Vectus results in lasting hair reduction, no matter the area of the body. You will see a reduction in body hair after treatment.


Many hair removal lasers take time to cover large areas of the skin. The Vectus Laser’s large spot size and uniform beam cover vast expanses, like the back, in mere minutes. This laser allows patients to pursue total body hair removal, with treatment sessions that last 45 minutes. Patients will see incredible results within a fraction of the time.

What Hair Color Is Most Effectively Removed?

Laser hair removal works best with colored hair. Laser technology cannot target follicles without melanin, meaning that patients with white, red, grey or super blond hair will not see results.

What Skin Tones Can Be Treated?

We use several different lasers to try to accommodate patients of every skin type and tone. During the initial consultation, your skin type, hair color, and skin sensitivity will help us determine a personalized treatment plan to ensure beautiful, smooth results that you’ll love.

What Are The Risks?

Laser Hair Removal’s risks are very low, as the lasers are designed to remove hair quickly and efficiently. It’s a lunchtime procedure with no recovery time. As with every procedure, our staff walks each guest through a detailed consent form that explains all the possible risks.

What Other Areas Can Be Treated?

The most common treatment areas for laser hair removal are as follows:

How Long Do Results Last?

Every patient’s results from laser hair removal treatments will vary; however, most patients’ results last years, with many patients experiencing permanent hair loss. The treated hair will not fall out immediately. You will shed the hairs over several days or weeks, and the hair can also fall out patchy. As previously mentioned, laser hair removal targets follicles in the new-growth stage, which is why more than one session is necessary to achieve long-lasting results.
