SHR Super Hair Removal Laser Treatments
SHR stands for Super Hair Removal. Using a patented technology, SHR permanently destroys hair follicles by using low fluence repetitive laser pulses targeting the susceptible hair follicles while at the same time providing concurrent contact cooling, resulting in painless, permanent and SAFE hair removal.
HOW DOES SHR WORK?
SHR gradually heats the dermis to a temperature that is able to effectively damage hair follicles and also prevent re-growth of the hair follicles, while very importantly avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue. With Super Hair Removal the hair follicles do not get exposed to one single pulse of high energy because using a single pulse of high energy (like regular laser hair removal) can have the risk of injuring the skin. Instead the follicle receives multiple, short, and low energy pulses accumulating enough energy to damage the hair follicle.
DOES IT HURT?
An In-Motion method is used with SHR by moving the handpiece multiple times over the area being treated to ensure full coverage. Crystal Tech cooling is used via a sapphire tip preventing superficial burns and facilitating virtually painless but very effective hair removal. SHR is a very safe option for darker Fitzpatrick skin types that are at high risk of burns and PIHP (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation).
These are only some of the benefits of hair removal:
- Time saving
- Prevents razor burn
- Reduces body odour
- Prevent in-growns and PIHP (post-inflammatory pigmentation)
- Reduces breakouts for clients prone to breakouts on face, neck, chest and back
HOW QUICKLY DOES IT WORK?
Most people notice a reduction in hair (or at least a more even skin texture
from a reduction in follicles) after the first treatment.
However it usually takes around 6 treatments to target all hair follicles
and prevent future growth.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Treatment plans are individualised depending on the type of hair and
how fast it grows. Most people start with 6-12 treatments one month apart.
From then, they may only need an SHR session once every 12-24 months
HOW MUCH DOES THIS TREATMENT COST?
Treatments cost between $20 and $300 depending on the size of the
area that you wish to treat.
