What is SHR IPL/ Laser Hair Removal                        

SHR stands for Super Hair Removal, a combination of laser technology and the benefits of intense pulsed light (IPL) for permanent hair reduction.

This system delivers practically painless results and even hairs which may have previously been difficult to remove can now be treated. 

The sweeping technique of moving the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area ensures full coverage while the cooling system cools the skin surface, preventing burning and allowing for virtually pain-free yet highly effective hair removal.

SHR can also be used to successfully treat pigmentation, rosacea and red veins as well as skin rejuvenation.

What is the difference between traditional laser technology and IPL technology?           
Traditional laser or IPL technologies employ short impulses of approximately 2-300 milliseconds, applying a vast amount of energy (12-120 Joule on one square centimetre). Energy is transported to the hair root through melanin, where warmth of 65-72° Celsius is produced. Energy reaches the root of the hair follicle solely through melanin. Skin and red blood cells have a similar absorption coefficient as melanin and therefore also absorb the high levels of energy produced by the laser and IPL methods. This can lead to swelling lasting several days or even to third-degree burns.  

SHR technology, on the other hand, utilizes the melanin path only partially (50%). Light energy is penetrated down to the follicles which produce hair growth.

Research has shown that a slower, but longer heating process is considerably more effective for permanent hair removal than high and short levels of energy. Therefore, when using SHR, the device is passed over the tissue 6-10 times (in motion) using low energy but a high rate of repetition (up to 10Hz, i.e. 10 times per second) instead of using the traditional method with single, high-energy impulses. Thus, the hair melanin, as well as the tissue of the stem cells, is heated with low energy at a slow pace and over a longer period of time (90 seconds) to a comfortable temperature of 45° Celsius. SHR enables the successful treatment of blonde and, in part even white hair, given that the hair pigment is only secondary.

Conventional devices not using SHR technology merely transport energy along melanin to the follicles.  SHR gently transports the energy through the skin and through melanin to the follicles.

What advantages does this have for you?       
An optimal intensity can be achieved given that the same area is treated multiple times with low energy impulses. The treatment is more comfortable and the skin is better protected than with conventional methods. The treatment is virtually painless.

How are different skin colours affected?  
Light skin with dark hair responds most favourably to the treatments. In addition to targeting the melanin, SHR-technology affects the chromophore, a protein located in the follicle, enabling the successful treatment of dark skin removing achromous, fine hairs.                                                                 

What does the client feel during treatment?         
Treatment with SHR is practically painless as opposed to treatment with the conventional IPL devices. On areas with dense hair growth, warmth from the light impulses is evoked and the light impulses may be felt to a much lesser extent than with laser or IPL.

Are SHR Treatments suitable for Men?
Yes, men make up a big percentage of our clients. In contrast to other hair removal technologies, SHR  uses an IN-Motion technology, which is a rolling technique that scans the area, rather than focusing on one hair at a time, thus providing males with a true pain free solution for all areas containing thick, dense hair.                                      

Precautions to be taken before the treatment?      

Sun exposure, fake tanning, sunbeds and hair removal creams should be avoided at least one week before initial treatment and throughout the treatment period.  Hairs should not be waxed or plucked less than 6 weeks before treatment.  Shaving is allowed any time.  Areas to be treated should be shaved the day before your appointment.  Certain medications can make skin more susceptible to damage and we will need to be aware of all medication               

Precautions to be taken after the treatment?
The skin’s natural protection is highly weakened after this intense light treatment. Therefore a high level of UV protection in the form of suntan lotion should be applied for about 1 week.  After 1-5 weeks hair will fall out. Shaving is possible any time but hair should not be plucked.                                   

What else can be done with SHR ?                                   
SHR's capabilities are used extensively, for additional aesthetic applications, including skin rejuvenation, pigmentation and dark spot removal, red veins / spider vein treatment, skin tightening, re-contouring and treating acne scarring.

IPL Sheerlight SHR IPL -  Skin Rejuvenation and Hair Removal
All treatments performed using the SHR IPL Machine require an initial consultation and patch test.

Which areas can be treated?
Body hair can be removed on any part of the body. It is recommended a test be performed on a small patch before the first treatment.

How many treatments are necessary?
The number of treatments required varies from client to client and will be discussed during your consultation and reviewed during the treatment process. 

How long should the intervals between treatments be?           
The hair growth cycle and the interval between treatments should correspond requiring spacing of approximately 4 weeks.

How much time is necessary for a treatment?
Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the time varies from 15 to 30 minutes for smaller areas and up to an hour for larger areas.

Will there be any side-effects?
Skin is more sensitive in some areas of the body than in others and redness can occur as a side effect.
