The Gift of Time

New Year Resolutions! Bah- Humbug! I’ve never been too good at keeping “Resolutions”, so, this year I have decided not to make any. Instead I’ve decided to focus on de-cluttering my world, simplifying things, be it at home or within myself. De-cluttering & simplifying can take time and like many of you, “Time” is always at the fore-front of the reason why we can’t get things done! Most of us tend to procrastinate on the things we don’t enjoy doing, like shaving! This is one thing I no longer have to do, so I have plenty of spare time to get more accomplished instead of wasting precious time in the shower.

Summer is knocking on the door; I want to encourage you all to be ready to answer that door with smooth hair free legs! Just think of all the time you spend shaving just to get a “smooth” leg only to discover that the “smoothness” only last a matter of hours! I used to call myself the “Five O’ Clock Shadow Girl”! I could shave in the morning and then have to shave again that evening if I wanted smooth legs! So, think about how long it takes you to shave your whole legs…probably about 20 minutes, maybe a bit more depending on how coarse and dark your hair is and if you cut yourself or get razor bumps! UGH! Who has that kind of time to dedicate daily! Let’s be honest girls, and guys listen too because it’s a lot of work for us girls! Ladies, you probably forego having smooth legs until you think you may have to show them off in public or that your significant other might want to get a little closer to you. Here in Texas, it’s Summer for a long time, which means lots of bare leg time for all to see…or feel!

This year give yourself the Gift of Time and money, as we all know how pricy razors are! I love not shaving and it is one less thing I think about. The most popular areas to have laser hair removal done are bikini, legs and underarms. Of course, we can laser almost anywhere you have hair. So, say goodbye to razor bumps, ingrown hairs and to razor rash!

Athens has a unique Dual Laser System which allows us to safely and effectively treat all skin types. I invite you to take a look at our website this month; we are offering a wonderful Special on our Legs Package and a few additional specials on other areas as well for the month of January.
Join me in “De-Cluttering” and give yourself the Gift of Time!

“Say Yes” to being Hair Free in 2013!

A guide to laser hair removal for your legs

After the female underarm, the female leg is the most commonly plucked, waxed, shaved, depilated, threaded, bleached and sugared area of the body! It is unsurprising that laser hair removal for the legs is quite a commonly sought procedure. If you’re looking forward to walking straight past the shaving aids section in the supermarket for the rest of your life, check out our guide to laser hair removal for your legs first.

Laser hair removal for your legs

Most of us are quite used to leg hair removal – but there are still some little extras to consider with laser hair removal for your legs:

  • Pricing for your legs is significantly different to other popular areas, simply because of the time that a treatment takes.
  • If budget is an issue, however, having only your lower legs done is a popular and quite workable option.
  • For older men and women, laser hair removal on the legs can stimulate new collagen production and help offset the loose skin that comes with aging!
  • Many clinics promote IPL hair removal as an equivalent option to laser hair removal. Unfortunately, it is not. IPL treatments can cause significant burns and scarring, and fail to achieve any permanent hair reduction.

How does it feel?

Given that most of us have developed pretty high pain tolerance on our legs through waxing, laser hair removal for legs is usually a walk in the park. Our Cynosure machines have a Cooling Device attached for a much more comfy experience.

How long does it take?

Laser hair removal for your legs is not as quick as your bikini area because your legs are a rather large skin area. Upper legs have a finer hair than your lower legs. The lower leg hair is generally a more course hair and the first few sessions may go slower than later sessions. Legs can take for 30 Minutes to an hour depending on whether full legs or lower legs, prep time and number of treatments performed prior.

Leg laser hair removal pricing

Laser hair removal for the legs looks like a pretty big investment – but because the legs are such a popular area to have treated, many clinics have specials on full leg laser hair removal. See our treatments section for pricing information that Athen’s offers.
