Best Treatments for “Strawberry Legs”
In Part 1 of this article we explained what caused “strawberry legs” – those unsightly red spots or bumps on your legs, sometimes with small brown or black dots in the center.
In this article, the skin care experts at AMAE discuss the many effective products and treatments available at AMAE in the Troy, MI area to get rid of “strawberry legs” – so you can enjoy silky, smooth, sexy legs.
As with any skin problem or medical condition, the best first step is to see a medical professional, like the skincare experts at AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, Mi area, to diagnose the exact underlying cause of your strawberry legs – and to rule out infection – so you can choose the best course of treatment for your unique skin issue.
Clinical Grade Moisturizers for Strawberry Legs
In some cases, where dry skin is the primary cause of strawberry legs, all it may take is a good clinical strength moisturizer to remedy the condition.
At AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, MI area we offer the widest selection of the best medical grade skin care products from Alastin, Elta MD, and ZO Skin Health by Dr. Obagi. These products are available in our online stores as well as at the Med Spa.
Our experienced skin care experts can recommend the products that are right for your unique skin condition.
Laser Hair Removal for Strawberry Legs
In some individuals, especially those with thicker or more coarse hair, strawberry legs can be the result of in-grown hair. For these patients, laser hair removal is a highly effective way to get rid of unwanted hair and to eliminate the strawberry legs that come with it.
At AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, Mi area we offer the revolutionary Nordlys Ellipse IPL laser hair removal system. This procedure is strong and effective enough to remove even the coarsest and thickest of hair, yet gentle enough for even the most sensitive areas of the body.
With laser hair removal you can permanently say goodbye to waxing, shaving, tweezing and depilatories, as well as ugly strawberry bumps!
Exfoliation for Strawberry Legs
In cases of clogged pores (comedones) causing strawberry legs, exfoliation treatments that remove the dead skin cells, oils and debris from the pores may be the ideal treatment. At AMAE Med Spa we offer a variety of exfoliation treatments that can be customized specifically for the skin on the legs.
Chemical Peels containing salicylic acid or glycolic acid can get rid of dry and dead skin, as well as help treat acne or other underlying skin conditions that may be causing or worsening your strawberry legs.
At AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, Mi area we also offer the revolutionary Dermalinfusion Diamond Glow system that simultaneously combines exfoliation, extraction of clogged pores, and serum infusion into a single treatment. A diamond-tipped wand exfoliates the skin while special vacuum technology sucks the sebum (oil) and skin cells out of the pores – while a specially formulated serum is infused into the pores to help kill bacteria, calm inflammation and heal the skin.
Prescription Treatments for Strawberry Legs
That advantage to seeing an experienced skin care expert, like Dr. Ali, rather than self-treating strawberry legs is that he can determine if you’re dealing with an infection (such as folliculitis) that requires a prescription to treat the infected hair follicles.
Dr. Ali will be able to determine if your unsightly bumps are the result of a bacterial, yeast or fungal infection, and can prescribe antibiotic or antifungal creams or gels (and oral antibiotics in extreme cases), as well as topical anti-inflammatory medication. Once any infection has been cleared up, you are off to a fresh start! And then our many other skin care treatments for strawberry legs can help keep you legs smooth, clear and bump free for long-lasting results.
