SHR (IPL) LASER TECHNOLOGY
Super Hair Removal Technology (SHR) Lasers is a revolutionary new method for permanent hair removal that is virtually pain & side effect free. In comparison to other slightly dated laser and IPL methods, SHR provides faster, safer and pain free hair reduction treatments for clients.
WHAT IS SHR?
SHR stands for Super Hair Removal. It’s a huge step forward in permanent hair reduction and is the most advanced way of removing unwanted hair. SHR is faster than traditional IPL and Laser, it’s safer and its pain free in comparison.
HOW DOES SHR WORK?
SHR is a revolutionary approach. Rather than bombarding your skin with high amounts of Joules (energy), SHR fires multiple shots but at low Joules. This gently heats the hair follicle to the heat needed and the most you will feel is warmth and a tingling sensation. SHR also utilises In-Motion technology, where the hand piece is always in motion on the skin.
IS SHR SUITABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES?
SHR is suitable for all skin types, even tanners, this is achievable because of the technology and techniques utilised. Unlike traditional Laser and IPL, SHR can be had all year round without having to hide from the sun.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
To fully treat the area you may require 6-10 treatments at four week intervals. A four week regime is important to maintain so that the SHR treatments get the hair at its four week re-growth. Near the end of the treatments, 6-8 week intervals will be needed to finish off your course.
IS THERE ANY PAIN?
Absolutely pain free, this is achieved by SHR technology and In-Motion techniques, to give pain free treatment for body hair removal.

The benefit of IPL hair reduction (as opposed to waxing) is that you’re working towards a seriously decreased growth of hair. Depending on your skin colour and hair colour will depend on your result! Therefore results are extremely individual and this is why a full consultation is required, we at Petries Cottage can actually give you an estimate of the result in the consultation.
Also cost!! Even though the initial outlay of cost for IPL hair removal will seem quite a lot. Compared to on-going waxing cost, it is actually more cost effective than waxing!
Hair removal with IPL or laser uses heat from light rays to target hair roots, incapacitating it from ever growing again. Depending on the growth phase of the hair follicle, only approximately ten percent of the hair is successfully disabled each time. This is the reason why multiple sessions are required to achieve an acceptable level of hair removal. Most clients will see results after 6 – 8 treatments on the proviso that treatment appointments are strictly adhered to. This is intended to capture as many hairs as possible during its growth phase.
Other factors affecting the number of treatment sessions required are the area being treated, skin type, hair colour, age, gender, hormones and metabolism. Medical conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) will experience poor result and clients should consult their doctors before undergoing hair reduction treatments. This is due to hirsuitism which is excessive hair growth on the face due to hormone disruption; a symptom of PCOS.
While there is some immediate hair loss, the more common result is for hair to continue falling out over the next two to three weeks. Over the course of the six or seven treatment sessions, clients can achieve a significant amount of hair reduction in the treatment area. Subsequent maintenance treatments are only required once every six to twelve months.
With SHR technology only a slight warmth is felt during this quick treatment. You have to feel it to believe it.
Do you suffer from or have had HORRIBLE shaving rashes, ingrowns and excrutiating waxing experiences, this is amazing, hair reduction from your first treatment, minimal discomfort and virtually painless. I will never wax again!
PAIN-FREE HAIR REMOVAL
Most conventional IPL laser hair removal technologies utilize massive amounts of heat to destroy hair follicles and ensure permanent reduction. On the other hand, SHR IPL Lasers fire multiple shots but at lower Joules. This new method gently heats the hair follicles producing a warm tingling sensation—some clients compare it to a warm massage. In-Motion™ technology is utilised by moving the hand piece over the treated skin which contributes to the overall comfort felt by our customers during their hair reduction treatments.
ALL HAIR TYPES, ALL SKIN TYPES, ALL YEAR ROUND
The unique laser technology and techniques used in SHR IPL makes all hair and skin types suitable for this treatment. SHR IPL is also an attractive hair removal solution for those who don’t want to shy away from the sun, meaning hair reduction treatments can be had all year round. By utilizing low heat, SHR IPL decreases the amount of heat absorbed by the skin so treatment can be done on tanned skin. SHR IPL Technology is ideal for LIGHTER and WHITE HAIR.
FOR BEST HAIR REMOVAL RESULTS
Depending on the area that requires SHR, we recommend that our clients have 6-10 treatments at four week intervals. Hair reduction treatments at four weekly intervals will ensure that we are able to target the hair at the right time during the natural re-growth cycle. Towards the end of the process, the interval between hair reduction treatments may be extended to 6-8 weeks as the re-growth cycles slow.
SHR IPL LASER HAIR REDUCTION TREATMENT AREAS
Is it safe? IPL Laser hair removal is the most popular aesthetic procedures performed around the world. SHR IPL Laser treatments have provided safe and effective permanent hair reduction for millions of people worldwide. Because SHR Lasers utilizes IN-MOTION™ and low-heat settings we are able to provide a level of safety unlike any other laser hair removal procedure.
Will my hair ever grow back? Actively growing hair that’s been treated with SHR should not grow back. Once a hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow hair. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phas, will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for some patients to have a touch-up two years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes.
Do I need to arrange time off from work for treatments? SHR IPL Laser treatments have no “down time” and requires no recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work and other normal activities immediately.
Why do I need 6+ treatments? Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (active hair growth), Catagen (regression) and Telogen (resting, not growing). Laser hair removal only affects the Anagen stage (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately twenty-five-percent of hair is removed with each treatment. A few treatments are therefore required for the treatment area to be hair free.
