Spring is here, which means summer is just around the corner. Our legs get a chance to shine during the summer months. With dresses, shorts, and skirts galore, it’s no wonder that many women worry about how to smooth and shape their legs in time for the summer season. Now is the perfect time to pay attention to your legs and get them warm-weather ready! At Burgess Plastic Surgery, we have several options available depending on what your legs needs to get them looking their best.
Your Concern: Perpetually Hairy Legs
Shaving and waxing are the bane of women’s existence. Thanks to advancements in laser hair removal, there is an option that can make your morning routine far more seamless. By investing in Prowave™ Laser Hair Removal, you can have smooth legs (also perfect for under arms), every day! Designed for large areas like the legs, Prowave Laser Hair Removal boasts long-term hair results. Prowave is unique in that it takes advantage of two laser technologies: infrared light and output spectrum. Both allow for specialized treatment that cater to each patient on a case by case scenario.
It is important to start now in early spring because optimal results take time. Most of Dr. Burgess’ patients see the best results after eight to 12 Prowave sessions. In addition to silky smooth legs, other benefits of Prowave Laser Hair Removal include the need for no anesthesia, little to no downtime, and a very low-risk of complications.
Your Concern: Leg Veins
If you have varicose veins, you might not feel so eager to slip on a skirt or shorts during the summer months. However, with modern procedures like the YAG CoolGlide Laser, unwanted leg veins will be improved and leave you more confident than ever before. The YAG CoolGlide Laser introduces light into vessels and eliminates them, forcing blood to flow into deeper veins that are not visible on the surface. Most patients note a slight stinging sensation during the treatment, but once it’s over, patients are ready to go back to their normal routine with little downtime. Keep in mind that leg veins can be like weeds in your garden and you can continue to have more over the years. Some maintenance might be required.
Your Concern: Your Thighs
What woman doesn’t want trimmer thighs? Fortunately, Dr. Burgess can help you achieve a pair of legs that are slimmer, tighter, and smoother with Thermi®. ThermiSmooth® has two aspects that reap nice results. First, by introducing radiofrequency which stimulates collagen cells, firmer looking legs are seen over several months. Second, by producing more collagen, the quality of the skin improves drastically. Some patients have even seen a reduction in cellulite.
ThermiTight is a radiofrequency procedure that offers substantial improvement of the skin. ThermiTight works deep within the skin and is able to improve the underlying layers of tissue. While TermiSmooth uses several sessions to obtain the desired results, ThermiTight is a single treatment. Whether performed individually or layered together, Thermi treatments can help you achieve legs that are tighter, trimmer, and more toned in time for summer!
If your main concern is debulking the thigh area, CoolSculpting® treatments will do just that. CoolSculpting freezes pockets of unwanted fat in the inner and outer thigh, permanently ridding the treated area of the stubborn fat cells. Once treatment is complete, your body will naturally eliminate these fat cells over a period of 2-3 months, creating slimmer thighs with less bulk. Layering ThermiSmooth and CoolSculpting through our Fire and Ice treatment will help achieve best results for beautifully smooth legs.
