  Super Hair Removal
New Technology

SHR is 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 most skin and hair types.

Most conventional IPL laser hair removal technologies utilize massive amounts of heat to destroy hair follicles and ensure permanent hair reduction. SHR machines fire multiple pulses at significantly lower Joules instead. This new method gently heats the hair follicles producing a warm tingling sensation which some men compare to a warm massage.

SHR in-motion technology is utilised by moving the hand piece over the skin treatment area, which contributes to the overall comfort you feel during your hair reduction treatments.

How does it work?

During treatments intense pulsed light is applied through a handpiece that is in contact with your skin. These SHR machines function only in the visible light spectrum so no infrared or damaging ultraviolet radiation.

The light penetrates only the upper layers of your skin from the surface down to the hair follicles and surrounding tissue and heats it. Heating the follicle and surrounding tissue deactivates follicles from generating new hairs.

The SHR light targets colour pigment in the hair as well as chromophores such as melanin in brown spots and freckles; and haemoglobin in broken or diffused blood vessels, heats it up and neutralises it. This helps with Skin Rejuvenation.

Are all hairs desctroyed at once?
No. It targets only actively growing hairs, which is about 10% of your body hair at any one time. Your hair grows in constant cycles: In the first stage they actively grow. During stage two they become dormant (rest), and finally during the last stage they loosen and shed, only to have the cycle start all over again.

Only hair follicles in the active growth stage are targeted by these treatments. Hairs in the dormant stage of the growth cycle normally remain anchored in the follicles for weeks or months, depending on their location, but their follicles and associated hair germination cells are not disabled by treatments. These follicles are treated in subsequent sessions, which is why you need repeated sessions.

Hair growth becomes sparser with each session. All treated hairs should shed within about two weeks. After 3-4 visits you really start to notice the reduction.

Can I achieve total hair removal?

No hair reduction system can achieve 100 % hair free. It is possible to reach around 90% or even 95% hair free over a period and after a number of treatments.

WHO CANNOT BE TREATED?

Grey hairs - Yep, you waited to long bud...
Sunburnt skin - You'll have to wait a couple of weeks for the red to go and the skin to fall of mate!
Asian skin - Men from Asian descent are at high risk of pixellation.
Very dark skin - The light targets melanin that give you your colour. If you are too dark you would put yourself at risk of dangerous overexposure.
