Leg Hair

Reduce unwanted leg hair


Leg Hair

Unwanted hair on the upper and lower legs can make for tedious and continuous hair removal methods, and when you forget, hairy legs can be a source of embarrassment.

Temporary hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing, threading or depilatory creams and devices can cause rashes, bumping and ingrown hairs. Unfortunately, these side effects often subside just in time for the hair to be removed again.

Other causes of leg hair include:

  • Genetics, which may include certain conditions, like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), cushing’s disease, or certain cancers
  • Prominent dark and thick leg hair can also be caused by hormone changes


How to Get Rid of Leg Hair?

When your razor just won’t do it anymore your options to remove or reduce leg hair are:

  • Waxing
  • Threading 
  • Depilatory
  • Cosmetic treatments like syneron e-laser or laser hair removal 

Regardless of the leg hair removal method you decide to go with, we have a few pointers for better hair removal results. Make sure your legs are clean and exfoliated. After your leg hair removal treatment you should pamper your skin with citric acid or salicylic acid to prevent infection, itch and irritation. 


Leg Hair Removal Treatments

At Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic, we offer non-surgical treatments that reduce leg hair. We can also combine treatments to keep results longer, while smoothing your skin.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is FDA approved to permanently reduce unwanted hair from your legs. Hair is destroyed by the concentrated beams of light that penetrate in the hair follicle.

Radiofrequency Hair Removal

Since laser hair removal is not the best for blonde or red hair, adding a radiofrequency treatment, may help improve your leg hair removal results (not offered at our clinic).


An FDA-approved treatment for permanent leg hair removal is Electrolysis. It destroys hair by inserting an electrode into your skin, passing electric currents through the hair follicle (not offered at our clinic).
