SHR: Super Hair Removal Technology

Super hair removal (SHR) hair removal is an advanced laser treatment for the removal of unwanted hair. This innovative new technology is faster and safer than other laser hair removal techniques, providing pain-free treatment with no side effects, and consistently excellent results with no downtime.

SHR can be used on almost all body areas including the upper lip, chin, cheeks, hands, bikini line, buttocks, legs, chest, abdomen, back, feet, and toes.

Super hair removal technology uses a gentle and incremental heating process that is more efficient than the high intensity and high temperatures associated with alternatives like IPL/laser.

Each individual treatment is likely to take between 15-45 minutes, but times will vary according to the amount of hair and the area of the body being treated. For best results, we usually recommend 6-10 treatments, given at 4-6 week intervals.

Time until results seen

Results will be seen gradually over the duration of the course of treatment.

Treatment longevity

This treatment can be long-lasting but results may vary from patient to patient. Sometimes new hairs may grow back in the same body area due to hormonal changes in the body.

How does this hair removal treatment work?

SHR works by gently heating the hair follicles via multiple laser ‘shots’. The heat delivered damages the follicle, preventing re-growth of the hair and giving the patient a warm tingling sensation, all without affecting surrounding skin or tissue.


What happens during my super hair removal treatment?

A gel will be applied to area being treated and the SHR handset will be moved slowly over the treatment area. You will feel a warm sensation during treatment as the pulses of energy delivered by the laser gently heat the hair follicles.


Will I feel any pain or side effects?

No, this treatment is pain-free and has no side effects. Some patients compare the tingling sensation felt during treatment to a warm massage. Comfort and safety are ensured by the use of IN-MOTION™ technology that heats the hair follicles being targeted.


Who is this hair removal treatment suitable for?

SHR is suitable for most skin types but does not work on un-pigmented hairs. Unlike some other hair removal treatments, SHR is also suitable for those with tanned skin. This treatment will not be recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
