The gradual heating method of the IPL SHR light delivery to the targeted hair follicle also means that treatments are comfortable and practically pain-free.

What is SHR?
SHR stands for Super Hair Removal and it is the latest breakthrough in advanced IPL hair treatment… it’s faster, easier and best of all – virtually painless. Indeed, the rapid treatment times and superior comfort factor make it a leading choice for permanent, hassle-free hair removal. And let’s not forget – SHR saves you the ongoing cost and time spent on waxing, shaving and depilatory creams.
How is SHR IPL hair removal different?
The word ‘Super’ in Super Hair Removal offers a clue. Unlike traditional IPL treatments, it utilises high pulse repetition rates at low energy levels rather than delivering individual high intensity shots to the treatment area.
How many treatments will I need?
This depends on your individual hair type. Most of our clients require anywhere between 4 – 6 sessions to achieve optimum results, although hair will become finer just from the very first treatment. It just depends on your individual hair type, and of course we will advise you prior to treatment.
And what about between treatments?
SHR IPL hair removal treatments should ideally take place at regular intervals and this varies depending on the area being treated. As an example, the face may be treated at 2 – 4 week intervals whilst the chest, back and legs may be treated every 8 weeks.
What can I expect after my SHR IPL sessions?
Immediately after you may feel a slight ‘pepperiness’ or heat sensation, but generally that will not last long. We always bathe you in our organic after-care lotion, to soothe and mitigate any heat.
Is SHR IPL hair removal right for me?
Yes. Coarse or fine, dark, blonde or red hair – all respond well to SHR IPL hair removal treatments.
Which parts of the body can SHR treat?
You can remove unwanted hair from the legs, arms, back, bikini line and more. Our top of the range German technology devices also come with standard IPL to remove unwanted hair from more difficult-to-access body areas.
