IPL SUPER HAIR REMOVAL
SHR IPL PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION
SHR (IPL) LASER TECHNOLOGY
Introducing Super Hair Removal Technology (SHR) Lasers - a revolutionary new method for permanent hair reduction that is virtually pain & side effect free. In comparison to other slightly dated laser and IPL methods, SHR provides faster, safer and pain free hair reduction treatments for clients.
PAIN-FREE HAIR REMOVAL
Most conventional IPL laser hair removal technologies utilize massive amounts of heat to destroy hair follicles and ensure permanent reduction. On the other hand, SHR IPL Lasers fire multiple shots but at lower Joules. This new method gently heats the hair follicles producing a warm tingling sensation—some clients compare it to a warm massage. In-Motion™ technology is utilised by moving the hand piece over the treated skin which contributes to the overall comfort felt by our customers during their hair reduction treatments.
ALL HAIR TYPES, ALL SKIN TYPES, ALL YEAR ROUND
The unique laser technology and techniques used in SHR IPL makes all hair and skin types suitable for this treatment. SHR IPL is also an attractive hair removal solution for those who don’t want to shy away from the sun, meaning hair reduction treatments can be had all year round. By utilizing low heat, SHR IPL decreases the amount of heat absorbed by the skin so treatment can be done on tanned skin. SHR IPL Technology is ideal for LIGHTER and WHITE HAIR.
FOR BEST HAIR REMOVAL RESULTS
Depending on the area that requires SHR, we recommend that our clients have 6-10 treatments at four week intervals. Hair reduction treatments at four weekly intervals will ensure that we are able to target the hair at the right time during the natural re-growth cycle. Towards the end of the process, the interval between hair reduction treatments may be extended to 6-8 weeks as the re-growth cycles slow.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO PRIOR TO MY TREATMENT?
Avoid waxing, chemical peels on treated areas
Shave your hair one day before your appointment
Do not fake tan your skin or sunbathe
Make sure your skin is intact without contagious skin conditions (such as herpes, or cold sore)
IS IT SAFE?
IPL Laser hair removal is the most popular aesthetic procedures performed around the world. SHR IPL Laser treatments have provided safe and effective permanent hair reduction for millions of people worldwide. Because SHR Lasers utilizes IN-MOTION™ and low-heat settings we are able to provide a level of safety unlike any other laser hair removal procedure.
WILL MY HAIR EVER GROW BACK?
Actively growing hair that's been treated with SHR should not grow back. Once a hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow hair. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phas, will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for some patients to have a touch-up two years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes.
DO I NEED TO ARRANGE TIME OFF FROM WORK FOR TREATMENTS?
SHR IPL Laser treatments have no “down time” and requires no recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work and other normal activities immediately.
WHY DO I NEED 6+ TREATMENTS?
Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (active hair growth), Catagen (regression) and Telogen (resting, not growing). Laser hair removal only affects the Anagen stage (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately twenty-five-percent of hair is removed with each treatment. A few treatments are therefore required for the treatment area to be hair free.
WHAT ARE THE AFTERCARE STEPS?
It’s important that you do not pluck or wax any hair on the area that was treated. By doing so, you will disrupt the treatment process which may lead to potential stimulation of the hair follicle, in other words you could potentially spark regrowth.
Exfoliate the area once any redness subsides, approximately one to two weeks after your laser hair removal appointment.
Avoid extremely hot showers or baths for at least 48 hours after the treatment.
Avoidwearing tight clothings for the first 3 days
If discolouration/pigmentation occurs to the affected area, apply vitamin E to encourage soothing of the skin.
Avoid direct sunlight for at least two to four weeks after the treatment.
If you have undergone laser hair removal in a facial area, mineral makeup may be applied within the first 48 hours, but other cosmetics should be avoided until the skin has had time to heal.
Keep away from deodorants for at least three days to avoid causing irritation.
It’s important not the scratch the affected area. Scratching or causing a scab to arise may result in scarring.
Give your body 24-48 hours rest from excessive exercise, the gym or the sauna – these can all cause irritation.
