The technology behind SHR laser hair removal is very effective in preventing hair from growing back. Its slow heating of the dermis to a specific temperature, damages the hair follicle while protecting the surrounding skin. By exposing the hair follicles to multiple, short energy pulses instead of a large pulse of high energy, this technology achieves enough heat to damage the hair follicle permanently.
SHR LASER HAIR REMOVAL FAQ
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR SHR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Since this is a medical procedure that requires specific training to be performed safely and successfully, you should allow us to look at the area you want to be treated before the hair removal starts to determine whether you are ready for it.
Additionally, we recommend limiting sun exposure for about six weeks before the laser hair removal is done. If you have been exposed to the sun and your skin is sunburnt or peeling, you should wait until that is over before having the laser hair removal. Also, please limit plucking, tweezing, waxing, or any other hair removal procedure for at least six weeks before laser hair removal for your hair follicles to be ready for the laser.
DOES SHR REQUIRE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
SHR laser hair removal technology has developed a cooling tip applied to the skin at the same time as the heating pulses. This way, any risk of superficial burns during treatments is minimized or avoided. In addition, this combination of hot and cold allows you to experience the treatment while feeling comfortable and pain-free.
Also, no local anesthesia is called for since your skin is effectively cooled during the entire time of procedure. The result is that you can immediately resume your daily activities, whether they involve going back to work, attending a class at the gym, or anything else you wish to do.
DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING SPECIAL AFTER THE SHR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
At Skin Body Soul Spa, we recommend that you protect the area of your skin that has been treated from the sun. You do not want the sun to hit the treated area, nor should you use a sun lamp or other indoor tanning equipment. If you have any doubts, please ask yourSkin Body Soul Spa technician, and we will gladly address all of your concerns.
HOW LONG SHOULD I PLAN TO BE AT THE CLINIC FOR A LASER HAIR REMOVAL SESSION?
The SHR laser hair removal technique is so effective that we can remove hair from a full back in simply minutes. It is also so precise that it allows hair to be removed from the most challenging and hard-to-reach places in the body, such as nostrils, ears, and between the eyebrows. SHR’s applicators are so specialized that we can perform treatments on even the most minor parts of the body and all sensitive areas. This technique permits us to perform more treatment sessions in less time.
IS THERE ANYBODY WHO SHOULD NOT RECEIVE SHR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
The SHR laser hair removal treatment has been proven safe and effective on all skin tones or hair colors. However, if you are taking any antibiotics or any other photo-sensitive medication that cannot be discontinued, it is not recommended that you get an SHR laser treatment. Also, if you have an open sore, herpes, are sunburned, or have a rash or skin peeling in the area to be treated, we recommend that you take care of these conditions before booking your SHR laser hair removal treatment.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
You can see results immediately after the treatment. However, depending on the area treated and the coarseness of the hair, results may vary. You may require 2 to 6 sessions to achieve the desired results, mainly if it is a large area.
