SHR Hair Removal 

Introducing Super Hair Removal Technology (SHR) - Is not a Laser or IPL treatment, but a revolutionary new method for permanent hair removal that is virtually pain and 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. This technology is considered the best hair removal treatment to date according to several independent studies comparing the existing technologies.

ALL HAIR TYPES, ALL SKIN TYPES, ALL YEAR ROUND

The unique laser technology and techniques used in SHR  makes all hair and skin types suitable for this treatment. SHR 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  decreases the amount of heat absorbed by the skin so treatment can be done on tanned skin. SHR  Technology is also ideal for LIGHTER HAIR.

For best hair removal results

Depending on the area that requires SHR, we recommend that our clients have min. 6-8 treatments at four to eight week intervals. Hair reduction treatments at these 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 8-12 weeks as the re-growth cycles slow. Avoid sun exposure, sauna, solarium, salt water pools and similar a week before and after your treatment.

FAQ

Is it safe? SHR  Laser treatments have provided safe and effective permanent hair reduction for millions of people worldwide. Because SHR utilizes IN-MOTION and low-heat settings we are able to provide a level of safety, unlike any other laser hair removal procedure. Please note that areas with tattoo may not be treated and and even though we take the utmost care when treating areas around a tattoo, the light can spread under the skin and come in contact with your pigment.

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 phase will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for some patients to have a touch-up one or two years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes or your body reproducing hair follicles.

Do I need to arrange time off from work for treatments? SHR  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. In rare cases on sensitive skin there may be a sunburn like redness that can last for 1-3 days, apply a soothing lotion such as Aloe Vera or cool packs (not ice) at home if required. Avoid using any skincare that contains AHA, Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid or Retinoic Acid  (e.g Retin A) for 3-5 days.

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). SHR hair removal only affects the Anagen stage (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately fifteen to twenty-five percent of hair is removed with each treatment. A few treatments are therefore required for the treatment area to be 'hair free'. A successful result is when 80-90% of hair has been eliminated.

Some people, due to their genetic makeup, ethnicity, health status and so on may not respond to the treatment as well as expected.
