SHR (Swift Hair Reduction) is a technology that combines Laser hair removal and IPL. SHR combined with 'In Motion' represents a breakthrough in permanent hair reduction with light technology. The treatment is more pleasant than with conventional systems and your skin is better protected. The treatment is virtually PAIN FREE.
How does IPL work for hair removal?
Does it hurt?
How many treatments will I need?
This IPL targets pigment located in the hair follicle and shaft. The light is absorbs by the pigment in the hair follicle and this energy is converted to heat which results in damage to the hair follicle. This damage causes delayed re-growth of hair and, in most cases, permanent destruction of many of the hair follicles. Unlike electrolysis, which disables one hair follicle at a time, the laser reaches and treats hundreds of follicles at a time.
Using much lower energy and multiple passes, IPL/SHR technology provides treatments with minimal discomfort and is virtually pain free
We recommend 6-10 treatments. In fact, it is not uncommon for a person to need 6 or 7 or more. There are a variety of factors that can influence the number of treatments any individual may require to achieve the desired results.
The hair growth cycle varies for different parts of the body, therefore each body part has a different course treatment.
