Laser Hair Removal for Strawberry Legs
Strawberries typically lead to a delicious experience. Strawberry shortcake. Strawberry smoothies. You get the picture. Some delightful recipes are products of this popular fruit. But one strawberry result is not so delightful. We’re talking about strawberry legs.
This condition makes a person’s legs resemble that of the summertime fruit. It’s common, and it can be addressed with an assortment of options. It has even been discussed previously on this platform!
But one option stands out more than the others. Read on to find out why laser hair removal is the best method to get rid of strawberry legs!
What is the cause of strawberry legs?
Strawberry legs occur when a significant buildup of oils or dead skin cells is trapped in the hair follicle. When that happens, the legs take a strawberry skin-like surface.
Other factors that can lead to the condition include dry skin, folliculitis, and keratosis pilaris – a skin condition that causes dry, rough patches and tiny bumps.
… you’ll be left without strawberry legs and with smooth, healthy skin!
Why is laser hair removal for strawberry legs a great choice?
Because it addresses those dark hairs by removing them altogether. The dark pigment in the hair follicles from the tip of the hair to the root of the follicle is targeted, but the surrounding tissue is left undamaged.
As a result, new hair growth stops. With ongoing treatments (which usually require seven to 10 visits), you’ll be left without strawberry legs and with smooth, healthy skin!
Are there other methods used to address strawberry legs?
Yes, but it’s important to know that the same lasting results that come with laser hair removal would not happen with another hair-removal method.
Other methods include traditional shaving with a sharp, clean blade; exfoliating, which will rid the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin; using a wash – specifically a salicylic wash which penetrates deep into pores and cleans them; or an intense pulsed light at-home treatment (IPL), which we’ll discuss below.
How effective is intense pulsed light (IPL) for addressing strawberry legs?
Unlike laser hair removal (which uses an actual laser), IPL uses lights in broad waves and does not provide the lasting results someone would get with laser hair removal. Repeated use would be the norm to keep the strawberry legs at bay.
Additionally, there’s a time and maintenance element to account for. The at-home device must be kept clean for best results and to avoid any potential bacterial infection. Oh, and don’t forget you need to keep it fully charged. And even if you do, it’s not a guarantee the charge will last for a full treatment.
It’s nice to know laser hair removal for strawberry legs is so effective.
It’s always nice to know your options – especially the best option – when addressing an unwanted condition.
Again, there’s more than one method to rid yourself of strawberry legs, as illustrated above. But if you want to ensure strawberry legs stay away, laser hair removal is the best choice you can make. To find out more, contact a laser hair removal professional!
