Painfree * Fast * Safer * Hair Reduction
IPL in Christchurch - What is SHR IPL?
SHR IPL hair removal is revolutionary ‘in motion’ technology in permanent hair reduction.
SHR is an acronym for “Super Hair Removal”. It is a much safer and faster method than traditional IPL and Laser treatment. The ‘in motion’ technology gently warms the skin, and therefore penetrates the energy down to the hair follicles at cooler temperatures than traditional IPL treatments. 50% is transported to the hair root through short pulses of energy via the melanin in the hair follicle and 50% from ‘in motion’ technology using multiple shots at low joules (low joules energy with higher rate of repetition).
The cooler temperatures of this “revolutionary technology” help make this a safer, pain free method of hair reduction. You may experience some tingling or warming sensation as the SHR arm is passed over treatment areas, however most of our clients say it is an unusually “relaxing experience”!
Who can have SHR IPL hair reduction treatments?
SHR IPL hair reduction is suitable for both men and women.
SHR IPL hair reduction can be done anytime during the year. Furthermore, it is suitable for most skin and hair colour types from fair to dark skin; (Fitzpatrick Skin types 1-5), fair hair, and even tanned skin!
