This is why we have written this article, to let you know the main six things that every dermatologist wishes you knew about super hair removal in Singapore before your visit. By the end of this article, we hope you will have a more informed understanding of what Super hair removal is truly capable of doing for you.

      I.   Pain

First up—the pain factor: Since this is your first time trying out hair removal service, you probably dread the pain factor. Well, let us ease your nerves by letting you know that Super Hair Removal treatments are much less painful than waxing or tweezing.

Yes, seriously!

How much pain you feel during and after your treatment will depend on what area you’re having treated and how much hair is being removed. The discomfort shouldn’t be more than an occasional pinch or two if it’s for a small part like the upper lip or bikini line. However, you may experience some tenderness if you plan on having larger areas done, such as the legs or back.

   II.  What areas can I treat?

As with any procedure, this will depend on which area you plan on having treated as well as how much hair you need to be removed. It would be best to consult with a dermatologist prior to booking an appointment for them to best determine if super hair removal is right for you. But, as a general rule, most people tend to have success with the following areas:

  • Upper Lip
  • Chin
  • Neck and
  • Arms (Bikini line)

III.  Can I Treat my Back?

Yes! Super Hair Removal in Singapore is an excellent treatment for those who struggle with back acne. There are numerous dermatologists that can treat this area by rolling over your shoulder and bra strap. However, if your back acne has a severe case or specific scarring, then a dermatologist will recommend another form of hair removal, such as laser hair removal instead. However, it should be noted that if there is any active inflammation from acne the treatment may not be ideal for you because it might cause an infection.

IV. How long does it last?

There is no certain length of time Super Hair Removal will be effective for you. Depending on your hair growth rate, these successful results can last anywhere from 6 months to up to 2 years.

The best thing that we have noticed about super hair removal in Singapore is that it’s extremely cost-efficient in comparison to other methods such as waxing or shaving because there are no costly maintenance appointments required after the initial service. One treatment and you’re set! This makes it much more affordable for those who have a hectic schedule.

   V.  What does Super Hair removal feel like during treatment?

Super hair removal may involve the use of cartridges that spin when they hit your skin. They spin really fast, and it feels like tiny bee stings when they touch the skin. It also makes a sound because it’s moving so fast. But when you get used to it, it’s not really a pain.

Questions to Ask a Dermatologist about Super Hair Removal

You want to be sure that this treatment is right for you. You also want to be at ease during this treatment. The following questions will help lay a good groundwork for your super hair removal in Singapore.

      I.  How long will it take?

Typically, a dermatologist can treat most areas of the body within 30 minutes to an hour. For example, if you plan to get your underarms done, that process shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes. However, if you’re going for a more extensive area such as the bikini line or legs, you may want to allow up to 1-2 hours so they can ensure accuracy and proper hair removal.

   II.  What do I need to do before treatment?

There is some general prep required before booking any super hair removal appointments. A dermatologist will recommend avoiding applying tanning lotion or perfumes on the day you plan on having this treatment done since it can cause a reaction with the laser. You will also need to wash off all of your makeup and put on clean clothes, so you don’t get any lotions or creams from your clothing on the skin where hair is being removed. If you drink, it would also help to avoid alcohol before laser or keep it at minimum because its dehydrating effects may impact the quality and/or safety of your treatment.

III.  What does super hair removal feel like?

Super hair removal in Singapore uses lasers to remove unwanted hairs, which means no discomfort or pain is involved during this process. The biggest thing that may stand out for some people is the noise that’s being made. It sounds high-pitched and a bit annoying, but just think about how long they have been dealing with these noises – they’re used to it!

IV.   How long do I have to wait between treatments?

You will want to leave some time between treatments since this area of the skin is still growing. Just like shaving, you won’t see results right away but after a few days or weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows. Hair removal lasers are designed only to target new hairs growing in, so make sure not to shave or wax before an appointment. Since it’s impossible to tell exactly how fast each person’s hair will grow back, dermatologists typically offer to schedule for every 4-6 weeks.

   V.  Will I experience any side effects or pain after treatment?

If you don’t have sensitive skin, then the only thing you should expect is some redness and swelling, which can last up to an hour after each appointment. This is where sunscreen comes in handy since you want to avoid further skin irritation if possible! If redness occurs, make sure not to expose yourself to the sun until it’s completely gone.

The Bottom Line

All in all, super hair removal is a quick and easy procedure that can save you time at the salon! If you want to get rid of your unwanted hair, then just schedule an appointment with your dermatologist. They will most likely recommend you come back every four to six weeks for an appointment since this skin area still grows. This prevents hair from growing back between appointments plus speeds up the process of seeing results!
