SHR IPL hair removal
Your skin deserves excellence in results and care. That’s why we’ve invested in the best available IPL technology with the SHR (Super Hair Removal) IPL machine.
The SHR (Super Hair Removal) system is the best in class for achieving results using the most innovative technology on todays market. This system is renowned for creating painless, permanent and powerful results when used by our expert technicians.
Hassle free hair removal
If waxing or shaving is no longer cutting it and you want to see long lasting results that persist over time, IPL could be the ideal solution. Our recently built SHR IPL Superlux machine is best in its class for its speed, effectiveness and comfort.
The SHR system involves gradual heating to the dermis to a target temperature that damages the hair follicles and prevents hair re-growth effectively.
Rapid repetitions of single pulses are delivered deep into the dermis achieving high-powered and therapeutically effective heat build up without the risk of injury to surrounding tissue.
When it comes to IPL hair removal treatment, preparation really pays off. To get the most from your session, we advise:
- Avoiding waxing, fake tan and body treatment oils on the area in the 3-4 weeks leading up to your session
- Avoiding exposure to sun at all times
- Shave the area on the day of your session
- Wear comfortable clothing to your session
Please contact us for more information and to determine suitability for this treatment.
Following your session, the aim is to regulate heat in the skin and avoid irritation. So for up to 7 days following your treatment you should avoid:
- Exercise that’s likely to cause sweating
- Very hot showers or the use of saunas
- Sun exposure – A good quality physical sunscreen is a MUST daily with IPL treatments
- Active skincare such as AHA or Retinol
- Exfoliating the treatment area
It’s important to know that results may vary from person to person, hair growth can be restimulated in a number of ways. We always recommend a course of treatments for best results and follow up treatments may be necessary to maintain your result. A best case scenario is around an 80% reduction of growth.
Certain medications (including antibiotics) and skin conditions can make your skin more light sensitive, so it’s very important that you let us know about your medication before treatment.
At the beginning of treatment, your IPL therapist will advise a suggested number of sessions – however this is a guide only and will depend on how your skin and hair reacts over time.
The Fitzpatrick Scale is the numerical scale used to determine your skin phototype and suitability for IPL treatment. Our device is capable of treating Fitzpatrick I to III to IV safely.
Generally, the best candidates for laser hair removal are people who have a high level of contrast between their hair and skin colour (i.e. the hair colour is much darker than the skin colour). This is to avoid the absorption of photonic energy into the skin when we are targeting the hair. Safety is our priority so we have a strict screening process during our consultation to determine suitability for our IPL procedures.
It is important to avoid sun exposure during your IPL treatment course. The settings we use will be predetermined from your previous treatment, if your skin has been exposed to sunlight you may be prone to a thermal injury.
