How to prepare and polish your legs for spring – The Times

The Times 

March 2022 

Experienced Beauty Editor, Jennifer George explores how to start preparing for the grand reveal of our legs for the month of May. While tights help to cover a “multitude of sins”, there comes a time our legs are exposed. Jennifer discovers the best treatments to tackle specific concerns such as toning or cellulite that can be treated with the help of The Cosmetic Skin Clinic experts. 

Sagging skin on the legs 

Loose or wrinkly skin above and around the knee can be stubborn and even difficult to treat. Factors that can play a role in worsening sagging skincare: 

  • Lack of hydration 
  • Hormone deficiencies I.e., lack of oestrogen 
  • Sun exposure 

The top 3 treatments that can help with sagging skin on the legs are Radiofrequency, Ultherapy and Profhilo Body. 

Radiofrequency treatments such as Morpheus8 can help to “boost collagen production.” 

Ultherapy, a non-surgical ultrasound treatment “for deep lifting” and tightening of the skin. 

Profhilo Body, is a “skin boosting” injection that plumps and hydrates the skin. “The effects can be seen immediately, but develop over the next few weeks. The treatment is quick, only a bit stingy, and you’ll need to cover up the area (which will have bee-sting like bumps on it) for a day or so.” 

Toning legs or tackling cellulite 

EMSculpt Neo is great for toning and tackling cellulite that seems to always plague our legs. It has rapidly gained popularity for its easy and impressive results.  

EMSculpt Neo “combines electromagnetic energy to send muscles into a pulsing frenzy with radiofrequency, which heats and weakens fat cells.” This treatment simultaneously “causes muscle growth alongside fat reduction non-invasively.” 

The EMSculpt Neo applicators are designed with a curve to fit around the thigh. They are “strapped around the inner or outer leg not unlike a harness, so you’re lying down, legs splayed, muscles constantly contracting for 45 minutes. If you’ve given birth, it’s easy to picture (but far less painful).” 

EMSculpt results aren’t immediate which is why four treatments are recommended, however the results are impressive. The appearance of cellulite is vastly reduced, “lumps and bumps get smoothed out, and in many cases, inches are lost.” It has proven to be effective on the inner thigh area.
