SHR Hair Reduction

SHR Hair Reduction

A safe yet powerful way to achieve soft, smooth, hair-free skin.

Don’t let unwanted hair make you feel self-conscious. With our advanced SHR Permanent Hair Reduction procedures from Cosmedico, we have a safe and potent way of helping you achieve soft, smooth skin.

SHR is suitable for both men and women and can be performed on all skin types. Furthermore, it’s suitable for use on nearly all areas of the face and body including:

  • arms and underarms
  • legs
  • back and chest
  • face (above lips, nose, cheeks, chin, ears, eyebrows)
  • intimates/bikini line
how does SHR Hair Reduction work?

SHR Hair Reduction work through procedures use selected wavelengths of low energy light, which are rapidly pulsed into the skin at 180 times per minute. Target hair follicles are gently heated during this process and terminally damaged. In short, that prevents any re-growth of the hair.

The procedures are relatively quick. The applicator is swept back and forth repeatedly across the designated area whilst the low energy light is pulsed into the skin, ensuring full coverage. Each treatment takes between 15 minutes to one hour (underarms: 30 mins or less; legs: 45 to 90 mins; bikini: 20 to 40 mins; back: 45 mins to two hours).

Prior to any treatment, we provide you with a patch test during your initial consultation, which ensures that there will be no adverse reactions in the tested area. Based on the patch results, our aesthetician will recommend a personal plan for your laser hair removal course.

does SHR Hair reduction hurt?

Unlike traditional Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments, which use high energy levels that may cause discomfort and pain, SHR Skin Pulse treatments are mild and comfortable, resulting in a pleasant warming of the skin. The applicator also has built-in cooling functionality, too, ensuring that you’ll experience comfort even in the most sensitive of areas.

How many sessions of shr hair reduction are needed?

The SHR hair removal procedure has the potential to be long-lasting but is not truly permanent. Studies show that professional hair removal procedures typically have a long-lasting impact. Some folks claim that they haven’t had any hair growth for at least ten years.

can hair grow back after shr?

One should undertake at least six to eight treatment sessions, spaced out by four to eight weeks, in order to achieve the optimum outcomes with SHR. However, it is important to remember that the quantity of individual hairs in the active growth phase, as well as the density and colour of the hair, are all factors that affect results.
