“SHR is the smarter choice for hair removal as its high frequency “In-Motion” working method brings more effective heat for remove the hair.”
SHR vs IPL – Why SHR Hair Removal is Better
When it comes to the topic of hair removal method, you might be familiar with the various forms of hair removal- shaving, epilating, tweezing, waxing and IPL (intense pulsed light) hair removal. Laser hair removal treatments are now seeming as the most effective method of hair removal for all hair type. While IPL used to be the most popular form of permanent hair removal, many people are starting to pay attention to SHR (Super Hair Removal) as the better alternative to IPL.
What is IPL Hair Removal?
IPL (intense pulse light) uses a single pulse of energy, at high intensity, which targets the customer’s hair follicles and melanin. IPL simply works by releasing light in multiple wavelengths directly into the dermis. Melanin is produced in specialized cells called melanocytes. The intense light and energy from IPL are converted into heat energy and is able to cause damage to the hair follicles without causing too much damage to the skin. This makes IPL more suitable for people with darker and coarser hair.
What is SHR or Super Hair Removal?
SHR (Super Hair Removal) is a relatively newer technology which uses low energy and rapid pulsing light but at a higher frequency. This technique relies on focused light, which makes treatment of bigger body areas possible. SHR technology allows the skin to be heated gently, but with the rapid pulses, the energy is then accumulated by the skin. While 50% of the energy is targeted at the melanin (similar to IPL), the other 50% targets the stem cells responsible for hair production.
Advantages of the SHR Technology:
With SHR technology the hair removal methodology that involves the hair pigment uses only 50 per cent of the energy for permanent hair removal. The remaining 50 per cent is absorbed into the stem cells responsible for hair production through the skin during treatment with SHR technology.
With SHR technology one does not need single pulses with high energy. The skin is massaged six to ten times using low energy but with high frequency. This procedure is referred to as the so-called “in-Motion” methodology, because the hand piece is moved over the treated area in sliding movements. (Unlike this, the IPL technology is called “stamp technology”.)
Using the SHR technology the skin is heated gently through the melanin and the stem cells with low energy (48 degrees) but with high frequency. In that way even lighter and finer hair can be treated and removed permanently in a better way. With IPL technology the skin is heated up to 70 degrees.
