SHR stands for Super Hair Reduction and is the latest breakthrough innovation in IPL permanent hair reduction. When compared to traditional IPL hair reduction treatments, SHR is faster, easier and best of all - pain free.
With SHR, you can experience comfortable hair removal treatments in less than half the time of a traditional IPL session. The gradual heating method of the IPL SHR light delivery to the targeted hair follicle also means that treatments are comfortable and pain-free.
The rapid treatment times and superior comfort factor both make SHR a leading choice when seeking permanent and hassle-free hair removal solutions. In addition, SHR offers a great way to save on the ongoing cost and time spent on waxing, shaving and depilatory creams.
SHR excels in rapid and painless hair removal from larger areas.
How is SHR IPL hair removal different?
SHR technology is a breakthrough innovation in IPL treatments. The difference between IPL SHR and other IPL machines is that SHR scans the treatment area with up to 10 flashes per second. This gradually heats the targeted area for painless hair reduction, instead of high intensity shots that can cause discomfort, experienced with traditional IPL.
Is IPL SHR hair removal suitable for me?
Treatments are suitable for a wide range of skin types and hair colours. Your clinician will discuss your expected results during your consultation.
How many treatments will I need?
This depends on your individual hair type. Most clients require 8-10 sessions to achieve optimum results though hair will reduce and become finer with each treatment. For some, maintenance treatments may be required to achieve a lifetime of smooth skin. This will depend on a range of factors, which your clinician will discuss during consultation.
How long do I have to wait between treatments?
Treatments must be conducted at regular intervals. These vary depending on the area being treated. As an example, the face may be treated at 2-4-week intervals, while the chest, back and legs may be treated every 8 weeks.
What can I expect after my SHR IPL sessions?
Facial hair will take 7-10 days to fall out while body hair may take 2-3 weeks. Individual results will depend on your skin type, hair coarseness and natural growth cycle. Your clinician will be able to provide more information on what you can expect based on your individual situation during your consultation.
