Hair Reduction - IPL | SHR

IPL is a non-invasive treatment technique for hair removal and skin rejuvenation treatments, including skin clearing, redness reduction and skin tone correction.


What is IPL– Intense Pulsed Light Treatment?

IPL is a non-invasive light-based technology used to remove 
unwanted hair and improve many skin conditions. Such conditions as age spots, sun spots, freckles, superficial capillaries and other unsightly discolouration of the skin can be eliminated using this technology. IPL is also incredibly effective for those of us who suffer from facial redness and can even stimulate fibroblast causing increased collagen production in your skin for a more natural, lively, healthier looking you!


How does IPL work?
A fully trained therapist will apply a specially designed hand piece to your skin and generate an intense pulse of light which will be absorbed by targets in your skin. The light delivered from the hand piece is delivered at high intensity during a very short period of time. It is this rapid discharge of light that provides the high energy levels required for each IPL treatment to be effective!



Hair Reduction Treatments

IPL hair reduction treatments are easy, painless and quick solution to unwanted hair and can be successfully used on the body or the face. Usually a course of 6-10 treatments is required to achieve optimal result, but once you've completed your treatment cycle, you can look forward to a lifetime of smooth skin with only the occasional maintenance treatment. Compare that to the cost and hassle of a lifetime of waxing.

What is SHR IPL? (Super hair reduction)

SHR is the latest in state-of-the-art Intense Pulsed Light Treatments (IPL) and is able to deliver a pain-free permanent hair removal, in as little as half the time of standard IPL. By gradually heat the hair follicle our SHR treatments disrupt the hair follicle's growth, so you can look forward to a lifetime of smooth skin with only occasional maintenance required. In just 6-10 treatments you can say goodbye to a lifetime of waxing, shaving and plucking!


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.

How is SHR IPL hair 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 up to 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.


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 face may be treated at 2-4 week intervals, while the chest, back and legs may be treated every 4-8 weeks.


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.
