Whether you’re planning an exotic beach getaway or you’re cycling competitively, hair removal is always a prickly issue. Many of us go through painful waxing or time-consuming shaving sessions, but better methods are available. Super laser hair removal is the best and most effective way of getting rid of unwanted body hair or facial hair in a safe and cost-effective manner. And more importantly, it offers permanent results!
Until recently, hair removal techniques such as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) only worked on some individuals (fair skin and dark hair combination). But Super Hair Removal Technology (SHR) Laser procedures are guaranteed to get rid of body hair regardless of skin tone and hair colour or thickness. This means that even blonde, white or red hairs can be successfully removed, as well as darker hair tones on Asian or Afro-Caribbean complexions.
The first thing we always get asked about this procedure is whether it hurts or whether it will burn, potentially leaving unsightly marks on the skin. Because this system is based on focusing huge amounts of energy (light) onto the skin, there is no risk of burning! The SHR laser shoots multiple light pulses at low levels, which gently heat up the hair follicle. You will only feel a warming sensation that is sometimes accompanied by a mild tingling feeling and no pain at all – as opposed to older IPL treatments.
Importantly, with SHR lasers you don’t have to live with embarrassingly long hair in between treatments. Simply shave or trim and be amazed about the progress you see after each session.
In order to achieve the desired results, five to ten treatment sessions are required at minimum at around four weeks’ intervals so as to match the hair growth cycles. As you are nearing the end of your treatment, the interval will move towards six to eight weeks.
Impressively, the hair reduction achieved with our Super Hair Removal Technology (SHR) can be up to 90%, and the lasers produce the permanent results. So if you are hesitant or would like to ask specific questions about this procedure, pop over to our clinic for an absolutely free, no-obligation consultation with our lead nurse clinician Zoe. We’re here to support you through the journey and give you all the information you need to make the right decision.
