SHR E-LIGHT LASER HAIR REMOVAL
WHAT IS SHR (IPL) LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Introducing Super Hair Removal Technology (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.
PAIN-FREE HAIR REMOVAL
Most conventional IPL laser hair removal technologies utilise massive amounts of heat to destroy hair follicles and ensure permanent reduction. On the other hand, SHR E-LIGHT Lasers fire multiple shots but at lower Joules. This new method gently heats the hair follicles producing a warm tingling sensation. An In-Motion™ technology is utilised by moving the hand piece over the treated skin which gives an overall comfort treatment for 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 E-LIGHT is an attractive hair removal solution for those who likes the sun, meaning hair reduction treatments can be done all year round. By using low heat, it decreases the amount of heat absorbed by the skin so treatment can be done on all skin color including dark skin.
FOR BEST HAIR REMOVAL RESULTS
Depending on the area that requires SHR, we recommend that our clients have 4-6 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.
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 utilises 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 phrase, 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 = Super Hair Removal
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.
The SHR difference
SHR technology is much like traditional IPL treatment but instead of delivering individual high-intensity shots to the treatment area, SHR scans the treatment zone—gradually heating the skin with repetitive low fluence pulses until the hair follicle is destroyed, resulting in stunted hair regrowth or complete elimination of the hair follicle.
Can Laser Hair removal cause cancer?
It is a myth that laser hair removal therapy can cause cancer. The lasers are specially designed to pass through the skin cells and target only the hair follicles deep within the skin.
The lasers used in laser hair removal do produce a small amount of radiation. However, this radiation is non-ionizing therefore it is not thought to be harmful, and there is no evidence that laser hair removal therapy causes skin cancer.
Can Laser Hair Removal cause Infertility?
Currently, there isn’t any evidence and no medical research studies that can prove the intense pulse light energy can harm your reproductive system. The laser light can’t penetrate deep into the skin to cause any harm. Most of the wavelengths being used aren’t that strong enough to go through the first layer of skin. The lasers only penetrate the skin and do not reach or affect any other organs. Laser hair removal is usually safe, even in sensitive areas such as the groin.
DIODE LASER HAIR REMOVAL
The key principle behind laser hair removal is matching specific wavelengths of light and pulse duration to a specific target, namely the melanin in a hair follicle whilst avoiding the surrounding tissue area. Melanin is the naturally occurring pigment in our skin and hair associated with colour.
Understanding DIODE LASER Hair Removal
The key to successful diode laser hair removal is the deliverance of high energy into the skin. The energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin surrounding the hair follicle whilst not impacting the surrounding tissue.
Diode lasers use a single wavelength of light that has a high abruption rate in melanin. As the melanin heats up it destroys the root and blood flow to the follicle disabling the hair growth permanently. High quality laser hair removal machines sincorporate crystal freeze refrigeration contact cooling (+5ºC) to protect the surface of the skin, making the treatment a comfortable, pain-free experience for patients. Diode lasers deliver high frequency, low fluence pulses and can be safely used on all skin types and hair types.
