IPL Hair Removal Treatment
Experience silky smooth skin!
Tired of shaving every day? IPL is a non-invasive and non-ablative treatment that uses high-intensity pulses of visible light. Our IPL Super Hair Removal (SHR) treatment can reduce the appearance of hair all over the body.
What is SHR?
SHR stands for Super Hair Removal and it’s the latest breakthrough innovation in IPL technology to launch onto the ever-advancing beauty and aesthetics market. Think IPL or laser hair removal but faster, easier and best of all—painless.
How is SHR different to regular IPL treatments?
Our new SHR machines can still operate in the normal IPL mode. This is where one shot is fired at a time with the handpiece held still and then moved to the next area for each subsequent shot. Where the SHR mode differs, is it can fire multiple shots (between 2 – 8 per second) but at a lower energy level. The handpiece is moved around (“In Motion”) as opposed to being held still with traditional IPL. A similar amount of total energy is transmitted, but studies have shown SHR provides the same or better results in a much more comfortable and safe manner.
SHR technology utilizes the melanin path only partially (50%). Skin is penetrated down to the follicles, which produce hair growth. 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 to a comfortable temperature of approximately 45° Celsius. Many people compare IPL to being flicked with a rubber band, but say SHR feels more like a hot stone massage.
SHR also enables a more successful treatment of lighter and finer hairs given that the hair pigment is only secondary.
