IPL SHR (Super Hair Reduction) FAQ's
Q: How is SHR IPL reduction different?
SHR technology is a breakthrough innovation in IPL treatments. The difference between IPL SHR and other IPL machines is that SHR scans the treatment area with upto 10 flashes per second. This gradually heats the targeted area for painless hair reduction, instead of high intensity shots that can cause discomfort, experienced with traditional IPL.
Q: Is IPL SHR hair reduction suitable for me?
Treatments are suitable for a whole range of skin types and hair colours. Your clinician will discuss your expected results during your consultation
Q: How many treatments will i need?
This depends on your individual hair type. Most clients require 8-10 sessions to achieve optimum results though hair will reduce and become finer with each treatment. For some, maintenance treatments may be required to achieve a lifetime of smooth skin. This will depend on a range of factors, which your clinician will discuss during consultation.
Q: How long do i have to wait between treatments?
Treatments must be conducted at regular intervals. These vary depending on the area being treated. As an example, the facemay be treated at 2-4 week intervals, while the chest, back and legs may be treated every 8 weeks.
Q: What can i expect after my SHR IPL sessions?
Facial hair will take 7-10 days to fall out while body hair may take 2-3 weeks. Individual results will depend on your skin type, hair coarseness and natural growth cycle. Your clinician will be able to provide more information on what you can expect based on your individual situation during your consultation.
