What is IPL/SHR?
SHR( Super Hair Removal) is a technology that combines Laser hair removal and IPL. SHR combined with “In Motion” represents a breakthrough in permanent hair reduction with light technology. The treatment is more pleasant than with the conventional systems and your skin is better protected. The treatment is virtually pain - free.
How Does this work?
The IPL targets the pigment located in the hair follicle and shaft. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and this energy is converted to heat which results in damage to the hair follicle. This damage causes delayed re-growth of hair and, in most cases, permanent destruction of many of the hair follicles. Unlike electrolysis, which disables one hair follicle at a time, the laser reaches and treats hundreds of follicles at a time.
