SHR Hair Removal
SHR's is a new and most advanced technology use light and electric pulses to heat the hair follicle and destroy its roots without damaging the surrounding tissue or skin. By targeting the follicle, laser hair removal treatments inhibit any future hair growth.
Q & A ?
What is SHR- Super Hair Removal ?
Super Hair Removal is a breakthrough technology used for permanent hair removal. When using SHR, we apply the "In-Motion" method, a gliding technique, that allows a more accurate treatment of the targeted zone. The precise positioning of the hand piece is not necessary, because the new glide technique represents indeed a safer and more effective option for permanent hair removal. The efficiency of the SHR technology relies at the most for 50 %, on the melanin contained in the hair (contrary to the IPL and laser devices that rely entirely on the melanin). SHR also directly affects the stem cells to eliminate the production of new hair.
How is SHR different from IPL?
SHR technology is newer and more effective than IPL hair removal. SHR causes minimal pain due to the cool touch laser hair removal methodology as compared to IPL. SHR can cover all parts of the body such as hair removal for face, arms, legs, underarms, etc. SHR causes less discomfort as compared to IPL hair removal. SHR is also suitable for all hair types and skin tones as compared to IPL, making it an effective means for permanent hair reduction.
It shouldn’t be painful?
When it comes to pain level, SHR hair removal falls somewhere between shaving (painless) and waxing (painful). It will usually use a cooling system to numb the area before and after the SHR treatment. It also gets progressively less painful as treatments continue and the hair becomes finer.
How frequently must a SHR be done?
For your initial course of SHR Hair Removal treatment, we recommend approximately 6-10 treatments. Treatments are spaced at three weeks in the beginning. As hairs become lesser and finer, treatments will be spaced between four and five weeks.
Please note that results differ between individuals, such as:
Individual hormones (or on medications)
Unlike darker hairs, red or blond hairs will need more sessions.
Are there any potential side effects?
SHR treatment is considered to be a safe treatment that is well-tolerated – there is still the risk of burns, redness and discoloration for some patients – although the likelihood is very low when done with experienced professionals.
Adhering to a strict skincare routine to keep your skin protected and moisturized is the best way to minimize any side effects and maximize your treatment results!
Is it a must to go through the entire treatment plan?
Many customers often make the mistake of not completing their treatment plan, and this can be detrimental to their results. While SHR is built to be a semi-permanent hair removal treatment – it still needs several sessions spaced at appropriate times in order to achieve long-lasting results.
Because the treatment is still highly dependent on the individual’s specific hair growth cycle, you want to make sure that each session is focused towards the hairs that are currently in the growth phase. After each treatment, your hair is expected to fall out within the next 3 weeks, and it is during this period where many customers are tempted to stop coming back.
On average, you will need around 6 – 10 treatments to start seeing noticeable results, as every session is expected to target only 20% – 30% of the hair follicles.
Especially for the ladies, hair growth is primarily caused by hormonal changes – which means that it is still possible for your hair to grow back. However, this can be easily solved by coming back for maintenance treatments every once or twice a year.
Is treatment expensive?
SHR treatment is actually a very affordable solution that although requires a heavy investment upfront – actually saves you more in the long-term as compared to shaving or waxing!
Since it will require at least 6 months to start seeing huge improvements, SHR treatment requires both the willingness to invest and commit to the process.
Depending on the number of treatment areas, and how many sessions it will require for you to see results – this will affect the cost of your entire treatment.
Does it matter which specialist I go to?
Yes, of course it does! Since SHR treatment requires a deep understanding and execution of an intricate technology tailored to each specific individual – it is important that the specialist you go to has a wealth of knowledge and experience on the laser itself.
Our staff are specially trained to ensure that you get the most out of every treatment session, and never compromise on your results and safety.

Will my hairs ever grow back?
Actively growing hairs that have been treated with SHR will not grow back.
However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase, will still need to be treated. It is not unusual to see fine hairs after initial treatments after a few years due to hormonal changes such as menopause, pregnancy or aging. Touch-up maintenance is recommended.
Do you treat pregnant women?
It is best to play it safe and avoid laser hair removal while you’re pregnant. There is no evidence to suggest that it is unsafe, but there have not been long-term studies to analyze the effect of the laser on an unborn child.
To protect your unborn baby, wait until after you’ve given birth to begin laser hair removal treatment.
Can I get laser hair removal if I have a tattoo in the area I want treated?
We do not suggest treating the area a tattoo is on and will only treat around it. Lasers for hair removal work on the same basis like tattoo removal machines being attracted to darker pigments. treating over a tattoo with a laser used for hair removal may cause the tattoo ink pigments to shatter, resulting in lightening of tattoos and most likely burning/scarring over the tattoo.
How Do You Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?
To prepare for SHR hair removal, avoid plucking, waxing, and tanning for three weeks prior to your first treatment. Take a shower and shave right before your treatment, but don’t apply any lotions, moisturizers, or sunscreens to the skin.
Areas that SHR cannot be treated ?
Pregnant ladies, Scars, birthmark, mole, Sun burned skins, cuts, irritations, tanned skin, pimple/ acne skin, skin with allergies, dermatitis, eczema & etc.
Waxed or plucked skin (need 3 weeks interval)
