Goodbye Strawberry Legs: Laser Hair Removal Rescue!
“Strawberry Legs” are a common concern that can leave your legs feeling less than fabulous. These small dark spots or dots resembling the seeds on a strawberry can affect our self-confidence when it comes to showing off our beautiful legs. But fear not, because we have an effective solution that will leave your legs smooth, flawless, and ready to shine: laser hair removal! The term “strawberry legs” is used by patients to describe the appearance of dark spots or dots on the skin, resembling the seeds on a strawberry. These spots are typically caused by the presence of small hair follicles or pores that are clogged with dead skin cells, bacteria, or trapped hair. The trapped material oxidizes and darkens, resulting in the characteristic appearance of strawberry legs.
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective method for long-term reduction of unwanted hair. But did you know it can also address the underlying causes of strawberry legs?
Laser hair removal works by delivering concentrated light energy into the hair follicles. The pigment in the hair follicles absorbs the light, which damages the follicles and inhibits future hair growth. By reducing the presence of hair follicles, laser hair removal can minimize the appearance of strawberry legs.
Laser hair removal not only targets hair follicles but also helps exfoliate the skin. The laser energy gently removes the dead skin cells, unclogs the pores, and reduces the build-up of debris that contributes to strawberry legs. This exfoliation process leaves your skin smoother, fresher, and ready to showcase its natural beauty.
The laser energy used in hair removal can also target pigmentation irregularities, including the dark spots associated with strawberry legs. The laser light breaks down the excess melanin in the skin, gradually reducing the appearance of dark spots and promoting a more even skin tone.
At our practice, we specialize in laser hair removal. Our providers use advanced laser technology to target hair follicles and improve the overall appearance of your legs. Each treatment is customized to your specific needs and skin type, ensuring optimal results and minimal discomfort.
Call or text 847.459.6400 to schedule a consultation. It’s important to remember that laser hair removal typically requires a series of treatments to achieve the best outcome. This is because the laser can only target hair follicles in the active growth phase, and hair follicles go through different growth cycles. With each session, you’ll notice a gradual reduction in hair growth and an improvement in the appearance of your legs. CLN® Dermatologics Body Wash (3.4 oz, $35 / 12 oz, $45) is a great product at skinfo® if you are not ready for laser hair removal treatment.
