What is people's opinion and/or experience with getting electrolysis done on lower legs?

I've done laser a couple of times on that part and frankly, wasn't too impressed. Actually, I've had different lasers and IPL done on every part of my body and not really impressed with the whole thing. If it was $20 per hour I might be, with the miniscule amounts achieved.

So not mentioning laser (which I know people will be so tempted to say!) what do you think?

I have much experience with women's legs. It's an easy job, but you have to be constant. On average, one leg (from knee to ankle) needs a 5 / 6 hours for the first clearance. If you wait long enough without shaving before the first clearance, the results are spectacular. The second clearance will need about 3 hours. And the third one, an hour and a half.

The skin of the legs is very hard and as James always says is a good area to do by yourself.
Do you want to see some examples of completed legs?

I can show you hundreds of them:

Are you planning to use Vaniqua on your legs,it is only effective on hormonal hair(some facial and body hair but not legs) After 9 months of electrolysis treatment on your legs, did you notice some reduction of hair?

Thanks Christine. smile
This is the way to compensate Hairtell readers of my limited knowledge of English. It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words. In my case, a thousand images can forgive million grammatical errors? I hope so.

I enjoy working in the legs. It's one of my favorite areas because that is where we can show how great is the electrolysis and how fast we can work with our Apilus Platinum. I agree with you in 9 months should only be very isolated hairs (1 or 2 hairs per each 15/20 cm2).

Great!!

I'm so happy to have taken the decision to start my leg's journey the next year! Could you please give me some recommendation to take into account before and during the process? Thanks a lot!

The most valuable advice I can give you is to not touch the hairs for at least 4 months prior to electrolysis.

Here is an example of the results of a single clearance on the legs of a 22-year-old woman who had received some laser sessions several years earlier.

The peculiar horizontal stripes are the result of a bad application of that laser treatment.

BEFORE (February 2016):




AFTER first electrolysis clearing (June 2016):





The first full clearance took 5 days with an average of 7/8 hours/day.

Josefa as always a picture is worth a thousand words! You gave that poor girl a gift of happy life with your amazing skills.
Every electrologist needs to photo document their work to help educate the public what electolysis is capable of.
