IPL / SHR Hair Removal
IPL / SHR Hair Removal uses light energy to target the hair follicles causing coagulation that renders the follicle unable to produce new hair growth. To achieve optimal results the treatments are performed during your hair’s growth phase.
SHR stands for Super Hair Removal and it’s the latest breakthrough innovation in IPL technology to launch onto the ever-advancing beauty and aesthetics market. Think IPL or laser hair removal but faster, easier and best of all—painless. SHR technology is much like traditional IPL treatment but instead of delivering individual high-intensity shots to the treatment area.
SHR scans the treatment zone—gradually heating the skin with repetitive lowfluence pulses until the hair follicle is destroyed, resulting in stunted hair regrowth or complete elimination of the hair follicle.
SHR also brings great news for those who are a little intimidated by the thought of discomfort during waxing or traditional IPL/laser hair removal. The gradual heat distribution of SHR means treatments are totally comfortable, non-irritating and virtually pain free making it ideal for even sensitive skin types.
Pre treatment Advice
Check with your doctor if you have any health concerns or are taking any medications. Do not wax or tweeze for four weeks prior to your treatment. Shave the area prior to your treatment, leaving a small patch of hair for your therapist to access colour and thickness in order to achieve best results.
Post Treatment Advice
Avoid sun exposure throughout your course of treatments. If the area does become exposed to the sun, ensure it is protected with a high quality sunscreen. (You should be wearing sunscreen all the time to protect your skin!)
Soothe the area post-treatment with a high quality repair moisturiser From ASI Don’t tweeze or pull out hairs, they will fall out naturally.
Exfoliate three days after your treatment with an exfoliating mitt. Don’t expose the treated area to the sun or sunbeds for the duration of your IPL treatment schedule.
Avoid excessive exercise and sweating after your treatment to avoid irritation.
Don’t use AHAs or retinol on the treated area for three days before and after your treatment.
Avoid swimming in chlorinated water for 24 hours after your IPL treatment.
Attending all treatments at the regular intervals and sticking to the schedule advised by your Therapist will maximise your benefits of IPL Permanent Hair Reduction.
