Summer Short Shorts Ahead: How to Get Your Silkiest Legs Ever

With summer just around the corner, we find our attention turning to losing those excess pounds gained over winter and prepping our physiques for breezy summer clothing.  

When it comes to putting on short shorts and skirts though, there can be more to think about than your thigh gap. Ever-growing leg hair, cellulite, and hard-to-move pockets of fat around the thighs can all cause stress and wardrobe complications. We can spend ages with a razor, getting our legs to the smoothness we like, when what we really should be doing is spending as much time enjoying the summer sun as we can. 

Here, Etre Cosmetic Dermatology offers insight into the most effective and time-saving cosmetic treatments that can provide the smoothest, softest and most sensational legs this summer. 

Laser Hair Removal

One constant hassle to risqué summer attire is leg hair. No matter how many times you shave your legs, or how close you take the shave, the hair will always grow back to a bristly stubble. 

A highly effective solution to this is to use laser hair removal, a process that stops hair growth at the source – the hair follicle. 

At Etre Cosmetic Dermatology, we use the most cutting-edge laser hair removal technology, Lumenis LightSheer® DESIRE™. This procedure ensures the best results, with maximum comfort and the least amount of downtime as possible. By using an advanced combination of vacuum technology, cooling air, and properly-calibrated laser technology, Lumenis LightSheer® DESIRE™ frees up any woman’s summer schedule by offering a permanent solution to leg hair. 

Depending on the size of the treatment area, sessions last anywhere between fifteen to forty-five minutes. A series of only three or four treatments will be required to reset all the hair follicles in your legs and stop them from growing hair. There is minimal pain associated with the procedure, and patients only need to stay out of the sun for a day or two following treatment before they can fully enjoy wearing comfortable summer attire over their silky-smooth legs. 

Another aspect of beautiful summer legs is to ensure that the definition and curvatures of the legs give you beautiful contours. An ideal procedure to help achieve this is CoolSculpting.  


Diet and exercise play a significant role in achieving the physique you desire all year round. Still, as many of us know, some areas of the body are particularly resistant to our fat loss efforts and stubbornly hold onto fat.   

With CoolSculpting technology, patients can non-invasively eliminate unwanted pockets of excess fat, particularly from areas around the lower buttocks and thighs. Once this excess tissue is removed from the area, the skin firms up and becomes smooth to the touch, and incredibly attractive to the eyes. 

Coolsculpting hyper cools the fat tissue in these areas, which, over time and after the treatment, kills off the fat cells and brings a shapely, sculpted look to the region. Coolsculpting is one of the most effective, non-surgical fat reduction techniques available today, and it can quickly and easily help patients achieve the smooth, toned, firm, silky legs they want for summer. 


Dimpled skin around the buttocks and thighs is often not a result of poor body definition or excess fat – cellulite, the condition of dimpled skin, is caused by issues with the structure of the skin itself, and Cellulaze, a minimally invasive laser treatment, offers patients the ideal solution to the problem. 

The Cellulaze treatment uses highly specified lasers to target particular regions of a treatment area. This works to solve the cause of dimpled skin, by releasing fibrous bands in the skin, which causes the dimples. The laser also stimulates collagen production, which is integral to maintaining healthy, firm skin and a silky summer complexion.
