How does SHR Laser Hair removal work?
The SHR system represents a huge step forward for hair removal procedures through Phototherapy. The system combines laser technology and the benefits of pulsating light to get painless results.
SHR is designed to cause long-lasting damage to target hair follicles. More gentle than IPL, short and gentle energy pulses directly target the hair follicle. When the targeted follicle is treated in the anagen, or growth stage the result is permanent hair removal of this specific hair.
How long will my treatment take?
The treatment itself can take as little as 10 minutes! A facial treatment will take 15 minutes, on average. Both legs will take up just 30 -45 minutes of your lunch break. As we are open early some days of the week and late on others, we can fit seamlessly around your schedule. Ideal!
How many treatments are needed?
Usually, from 6 to 10 treatments are needed in 2 to 4-week intervals for long-lasting success. As we are all individual some people achieve results in 6 treatments and for others 12 treatments may be necessary.
A 2 to 4-week regime is essential in the beginning as the SHR treatment will catch the hair in it’s active stage of re-growth. Near the end of the treatments, a 6 to 8-week interval is observed as your hair growth slows down.
One to two maintenance visits a year will sustain results.
This will be discussed with you upon initial inquiry as we like to ensure our clients are fully informed of all aspects when it comes to the treatments we offer.
Will it hurt?
The treatments with SHR technology are entirely pain-free, even in the most sensitive areas. The sensation is a pleasant warmth similar in temperature to a warm bath and no pain is experienced.
Is SHR hair removal suitable for everyone?
SHR is one of the only treatments available that is suitable for all skin types. This method involves heating and cooling as opposed to follicle exposure via high-intensity pulses. SHR works well for fair-haired people as well as red-haired people. The procedure is suitable all-year-round. The procedure is suitable all-year-round and can even be adjusted for those who love to tan. As with all systems, results may vary from one patient to another.
Is It Safe?
Through intensive clinical studies, SHR has been proven to be the safest method of light-based hair reduction. Melanin in dark skin is exponentially more sensitive to the heat used in laser treatment and the SHR method has been clinically proven to be safe for dark skin types. This makes SHR the safest phototherapy hair removal option no matter your skin type.
