What a response we have had about SHR treatment! So many questions and enquiries so I thought it best to get these out there for you all.
Can SHR help with ingrown hairs?
Yes, SHR works much better than IPL when it comes to the reduction of ingrown hair. For even better results we suggest that you scrub 2 days before your session to help get rid of dead skin, this is so that the SHR light reaches the ingrown hair effectively. A recommended tip is to use brown sugar and aloe vera gel as a scrub, the brown sugar has whitening effects on the skin and is great for darker underarm areas.
How is SHR different to IPL?
SHR (Super Hair Removal) only uses low fluence light during the service, clients will feel a sense of warmness. IPL (intense pulsed light) uses high fluence light that could cause burns (especially on dark skin tones) and pain. In terms of effectiveness, SHR releases 20-30 shots per second, whilst IPL only releases 1 shot per second. SHR clients will see results by the second session, SHR motion technology will also cut down treatment time yet maintain its optimal efficiency in comparison with IPL.
The most important aspect post treatment is the maintenance of a good skincare routine and this involves frequent hydration/moisturisation on a daily basis.
