SHR (IPL) Laser Technology
SHR is 4 x faster than traditional IPL and Laser, it is safer and pain free.
SHR is the most advanced way of removing unwanted hair today. SHR is 4 x faster than traditional IPL and Laser, it is safer and pain free.
(SHR) Lasers - a revolutionary new method for permanent hair removal 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. Its a step forward in permanent hair reduction.It is a new generation of IPL systems using in motion technology.
How SHR works, is a revolutionary approach, rather that bombarding your skin with high amounts of Joules ( energy ), SHR fires multiple shots but at low Joules, in doing so it gently heats the hair follicle to the heat needed and the most you will feel is warmth and a tingling sensation, some clients comparing it to a warm massage. SHR also utilizes In-Motion technology, where the hand piece is always in motion over the skin ,easy to compare to ironing .
T raditional laser or IPL technologies employ short impulses of approximately 2-300 milliseconds, applying a vast amount of energy (25-35 Joule on one square centimeter). 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..
SHR technology, on the other hand, utilizes the melanin path only partially (50%), and combining In-Motion technology, gently warms the skin helping penetrate down to the follicles which produce hair growth.
Conventional devices, not using SHR technology, merely transport energy along the melanin to the follicles.
SHR gently transports the energy through the skin and through the melanin to the hair follicles.
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 phase, 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.
SHR is the only clinically proven method of laser hair removal that is virtually painless. The unique heating and energy delivery method effectively damages the hair follicle and prevents re-growth, while preventing injury to the surrounding tissue. At the same time, ICE™ tech cools the skin surface, preventing superficial burns and the sensation of pain.
Proven Safety Record
SHR has been proven in multiple clinical studies as the safest method of laser hair removal for all skin types, including dark skin whereby melanin is exponentially more sensitive to the heat used in laser treatment. Hair follicles are damaged not by a single pulse of high energy, but by repetitive short energy pulses. These pulses minimize the risk of burning to the skin, as it is the heat build-up which raises the temperature of the dermis to the level needed for preventing hair growth.
How many treatments are needed.?
To fully treat the area you may require 6-12 treatments at four week intervals. A four week regime is important to maintain so that the SHR treatments gets the hair at its four week re-growth. most people require a series of multiple treatments. This is because the first treatment only eliminates the active hair follicles. Depending upon hair type and genetic factors, some patients may require several additional treatments beyond the initial treatment of 6-12.
