Laser epilation (hair removal)

Laser epilation is an effective way to get rid of body hair as it removes hair permanently and does not damage the skin. It can be done on all areas of the body and has no age limit. Laser hair removal targets the hair follicle and its pigment (which gives the hair its colour). The darker and denser the hair, the more effective the laser procedure.

    Laser hair removal on the legs is a safe and effective procedure for permanent removal of unwanted hair. After laser hair removal you will forget about leg hair for several years. Laser hair removal on the legs at Confido Aesthetic Medicine Clinic is performed using world-class equipment and only by personnel with higher medical education.

    How does it work? A short diode laser flash affects the hair pigment, melanin, and heats the hair follicle for a few milliseconds. As a result, the cells that provide nutrients to the hair are destroyed and the hair falls out and stops growing. This procedure removes existing hair, and also prevents the formation and growth of new and burrowing hair. Depending on the individual features of the patient, the number of hairs on the legs after a course of 6-10 procedures is reduced by 80-99%.

    Indications for laser hair removal on the legs

    Laser hair removal is indicated for those who are tired of fighting with undesirable hair on the legs and who consider their appearance non-aesthetic.

    The issue of hair growth on the legs is very common. Even fair hair may cause complexes for women. Another indication is a large number of burrowing hairs on the legs. Laser hair removal on the legs will quickly, delicately and, most importantly, permanently solve this problem.

If the patient’s age is under 16 years old, the patient should come for a consultation with one of their parents.

    About the procedure

    The laser beam affects only the pigment, i.e. melanin. Due to the short heating, the cells that provide nutrients to the hair are destroyed and the hair falls out and stops growing. The laser beam virtually does not affect healthy skin and affects hair follicles only, so the pain during the procedure is minimal. The procedure takes 15 to 60 minutes. The recommended interval between procedures is 4-6 weeks.

    Step-by-step description of the procedure

    Before the procedure, all dirt is removed from the legs. Eyes are protected with glasses, and the laser procedure is carried out, which is felt as tingling. Following the procedure, the skin of the legs can be treated with a medical antiseptic and additional cooling is applied, if necessary, with application of the medicine for better regeneration.


    As a result of the procedure, some hairs will fall out immediately, and some over the next few days. After the course of procedures, the number of hairs on the legs is reduced by 99%.

    What do you need to know before the procedure?

    The laser beam affects only follicles that are in the stage of active growth. As new hairs are growing, laser hair removal should be repeated. A couple days before the procedure, you need to shave your leg hair. Avoid the solarium and tanning for two weeks before the procedure.

    After the procedure

    Immediately after the laser hair removal procedure, the patient can return to their normal life. On the skin on the legs, redness is possible, which will resolve by itself in the next few …. During the first 24 hours, try not to get water on the skin of the legs. Within 14 days after the procedure, avoid sunbathing and the solarium. It is recommended to use sun cream when going outside. Also use the skincare product recommended by the doctor or nurse at Confido Aesthetic Medicine Clinic.
