IPL or Laser hair removal has been associated with pain, until the arrival of SHR. SHR hair removal treatments are the latest and buzziest treatment in town. For someone whos has experienced IPL or Laser in the past, will find a stark difference between the 2 and the new SHR.
What do Technicians and Clients say :-
"SHR is virtually Pain-Free, comfortable and has zero downtime"
"SHR is much faster and more effective"
"SHR can cover larger areas and evenly spread out the heat energy emitted into the skin, keeping the skin’s surface cool throughout the procedure"
"SHR is an ideal choice for even the most sensitive areas like Brazilian"
TRADITIONAL IPL vs. SHR
IPL and SHR are both effective methods, but SHR comes up trumps when it comes to comfort, results, and convenience.
IPL uses conventional high-intensity light pulses to target melanin, whereas SHR uses low fluence pulses at a higher frequency. As such, IPL’s high-intensity light pulses may increase the risk of skin burns and the sensation is not as comfortable. On the other hand, the skin is heated more gently during SHR, keeping skin trauma at bay. SHR’s cooling technology also enhances customer’s comfort, making it an ideal choice for sensitive areas such as Brazilian.
IPL’s light is mainly absorbed by melanin pigments in dark coarse hair. For fine, light colored hair, the lack of melanin means light is not absorbed as much. Thus, this may render the treatment to be less effective. The wavelengths of light in SHR not only gets absorbed by melanin but also by the hair-producing stem cells in the skin. As such, SHR can target both dark coarse hair and fine light hair, stopping the regeneration of these hair follicles. In general, SHR is suitable for all skin types as it uses low fluence pulses at a higher frequency, combined with the correct settings based on the customer’s skin tone and ethnicity.

IPL or SHR?
The truth is – both treatments are viable options for effective hair removal. However, if you want to
1. Minimize the risks involved,
2. Ensure minimal pain,
3. Have zero downtime
4. Have faster treatment times
5. Achieve softer, fairer and hair-free skin
THEN SHR IS DEFINITELY THE RIGHT CHOICE.
ANAGEN PHASE - THE BEST TIME FOR AN IPL-SHR TREATMENT :
When you are catching the hairs in the anagen growth stage you are stopping the growth at that particular follicle by cauterizing the blood supply with the IPL-SHR treatment. The hair will feel softer because it is already thinning out, even after just one treatment. This is why it is important to come in for your appointments as per your customized program so that we can catch the next lot of hairs in the anagen stage of life. The next best option will be the Catagen phase.
