Learn More About Super Hair Removal
Super hair removal, or SHR, is the newest and most advanced technology available for removing unwanted hair. For many people in the Brandon, Lakeland, and Riverview areas, hair removal can be time-consuming, expensive, and frustrating. If you dislike having to plan ahead and shave, pluck, wax, or epilate on a regular basis, laser hair removal can seem enticing. At Brandon Plastic Surgery, we now offer Super Hair Removal so that you can feel confident with smooth, hair-free skin in any situation.
Traditional laser hair removal works by sending concentrated light beams to individual hair shafts to destroy the growth mechanisms in the follicles. Although Super Hair Removal still utilizes a similar mechanism, it comes with the benefit of damaging the nearby stem cells to further prevent the regrowth of hair. With low light energy and rapid pulses, Super Hair Removal is safer, faster, and more effective than traditional IPL laser hair removal. At Brandon Plastic Surgery, located only 15 minutes from Riverview and 51 minutes from Lakeland, you can rely on the aesthetic expertise of one of Florida’s Top 10 Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Marvin F. Shienbaum.
One of the biggest benefits of Super Hair Removal is a more comfortable treatment experience. Because IPL laser hair removal uses high-frequency energy bursts, it comes with the risk of discomfort and damage to the skin. Super Hair Removal uses very mild energy pulses and comes with a built-in cooling system, meaning treatments are comfortable and relaxing – especially in sensitive areas.
Secondly, traditional laser hair removal tends to be less effective with certain types of hair, as well as certain combinations of hair color and skin tone. Super Hair Removal is safe and effective for all skin types, hair textures, and hair colors. It can be performed on any areas of the face and body including the legs, back, chest, bikini area, and underarms. This makes it one of the most comprehensive forms of laser hair removal here in the greater Tampa, FL area.
Super Hair Removal treatments take between 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the size of your treatment area. During treatment, your applicator will carefully apply the handpiece to the treatment area, ensuring full coverage and a comfortable experience. Most of our Lakeland, Riverview, and Brandon area patients report that Super Hair Removal feels warm and pleasant, allowing them to relax and unwind at our world class treatment suites. Once your treatment is complete, your applicator will review your aftercare steps and schedule your next session.
Super Hair Removal affects around 20% of the hair in the treatment area. Most Tampa patients undergo a package of 6-10 sessions depending on how quickly the hair grows back. Although Super Hair Removal produces long-lasting results, we recommend yearly maintenance sessions at our state-of-the-art office.
