Forget about May gray and June gloom in LA, it’s still the time of year when women wear short skirts, short short and bikinis. And what part of our body do we want to show off when we do. Duh! Our legs of course. And while we like to believe we know it all on the west coast, it takes a NY doc to tell us just how to accentuate the positive and make those gams look great.
Of course some femmes flaunt flawless stems, but most of us aren’t so fortunate. Others sport sensitive skin which is susceptible to painful razor burn. And then there’s those ugly spider veins.
Whatever the embarrassing ailment it might be, there’s an app for th at says Mike Sendogan, Clinical Director of New York City Medi-Spa LaserTouch Aesthetics offers advice on how to get sizzling hot legs this summer that you won’t want to cover up.
- ORGANIGLOW™ Organic Spay Tan: Glowing skin and a darkened complexion is one of the fastest and easiest ways to hide cellulite, visible veins, scars and freckles, notes Mike. LaserTouch Aesthetics offers a 100% organic, all-natural, FDA-approved spray tan service that is also alcohol, paraben and odor free. ORGANIGLOW’s formula produces different level of initial color depending on your initial skin tone, guaranteeing a natural-looking result. The clear formula provides no immediate results but color begins to develop within a few hours, steadily darkening over time.
- Skin Tightening with Laser Treatment: Laser skin tightening is done through the use of lasers to tighten the old and “loose” skin to give the appearance of youthful skin. After the technology was changed in the early 1990s from the ablative technology to the non-ablative technology, the risk and the recovery times from the treatments have greatly lessened. Especially GentleYag laser skin tightening technology has advanced with the change from the use of radiofrequency to the infrared frequency and an increase in the penetration depth, allowing a greater degree of skin tightening.
- Laser Hair Removal: When you’re strutting your stuff on the beach, nobody wants to feel self-conscious about dreaded ingrown hairs and razor bumps, especially on your bikini line! While shaving, waxing, and electrolysis are common solutions for hair removal, many people feel that these time-consuming and often painful treatments are not worth the short-term results. “The legs and bikini area are two of the most common areas for laser hair removal,” says Mike. “The bikini area is extremely sensitive and shaving this area usually results in a painful, unattractive rash.” Laser hair removal is a convenient non-invasive way to permanently remove unwanted hair with only minimal discomfort. It is no wonder laser hair removal was one of the 5 most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in 2010, accounting for 938,000 procedures, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
- Laser Treatment for Spider Veins: According to Web MD, about25 million Americans have unsightly varicose veins (a.k.a. spider veins) on their legs. Spider veins get their name from their appearance; the veins branch out from a central point, similar to the shape of a spider. Although the exact cause of spider veins is unknown, certain factors are known to contribute to their appearance, such as weight gain and sitting or standing for long periods of time. These painful and unattractive veins can be very embarrassing and often will discourage women from wearing bathing suits or anything that exposes their legs. This can be particularly distressing in the summer when most people hit the beach or don leg-baring outfits to stay cool. “Luckily there are lasers that can diminish the appearance of spider veins significantly,” explains MIke. The laser works by heating the inside of the vein causing it to seal shut and banish the bulging appearance.While laser treatments do not always get rid of spider veins entirely, they will enhance the skin’s appearance significantly enough so you will want to show your legs off all summer.
