SHR Permanent Hair Removal

Super Hair Removal (SHR) uses low energy light via rapid pulses to safely traumatise the stem cells of any unwanted hair, helping prevent any regrowth. Compared to older, traditional hair removal treatments that use Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), Super Hair Removal (SHR) is faster, gentler and more effective.

Super Hair Removal (SHR) is suitable for both men and women and can be performed on all skin types & hair colours. Furthermore, it’s suitable for use on nearly all areas of the face and body including:

  • arms and underarms
  • legs
  • back and chest
  • face (above lips, nose, cheeks, chin, ears, eyebrows)
  • intimates/bikini line.

How Does SHR work?

Super Hair Removal (SHR) procedures use selected wavelengths of low energy light, which are rapidly pulsed into the skin at 180 times per minute. Target hair follicles are gently heated during this process and terminally damaged. In short, that prevents any re-growth of the hair.

The procedures are relatively quick. The applicator is swept back and forth repeatedly across the designated area whilst the low energy light is pulsed into the skin, ensuring full coverage. Each treatment takes between 15 minutes to one hour (underarms: 30 mins or less; legs: 45 to 90 mins; bikini: 20 to 40 mins; back: 45 mins to two hours).

Prior to any treatment, we provide you with a patch test during your initial consultation, which ensures that there will be no adverse reactions in the tested area. Based on the patch results, we will recommend a personal plan for your laser hair removal course.

How long does Super Hair Removal (SHR) take to work?

Results are instant. However, as each Super Hair Removal (SHR) treatment affects only approximately 20% of the target hair, repeat sessions will be required.

What is the downtime with Super Hair Removal (SHR), does it hurt?

There is usually no downtime with Super Hair Removal (SHR). You can return to work straight after treatment.

Unlike traditional Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments, which use high energy levels that may cause discomfort and pain, SHR treatments are mild and comfortable, resulting in a pleasant warming of the skin. The applicator also has built-in cooling functionality, too, ensuring that you’ll experience comfort even in the most sensitive of areas.

How many treatments are needed with Super Hair Removal (SHR)?

Each hair removal treatment affects around 20% of the hair within the targeted area. We recommend an average of six to 10 sessions depending on the hair regrowth time, which varies in different areas of the body. The average number of treatments for a successful result is eight with an annual top up, if needed. The final results are long-lasting, we simply recommend a yearly top-up to help you stay hair free.
