Hair Removal is now a painless affair with Super Hair Removal (SHR). The old thinking was that light must be strong enough and the pulse long enough to heat up the hair follicle to destroy it. That light was delivered with either and IPL or a laser. Our old Coolglide laser was an example. It was effective but painful.
SUPER HAIR REMOVAL
With SHR, low intensity light in rapidly firing sequences deliver heat to the hair bulbs. The heat is low enough not to cause pain but just enough to destroy the hair bulbs in the hair follicle. We like the R&D that has gone to this. With SHR, we can achieve painless permanent hair removal and this method can be used on all skin types.
About Permanent Hair Removal
IPL VS LASER HAIR REMOVAL VS SUPER HAIR REMOVAL
We do not use IPL for hair removal anymore, although there is nothing wrong with it. IPL has certain limitations when used on darker skin types but if we adjust the power settings appropriately, its safe and effective.
We use Laser Hair Removal only in cases like ingrown hairs these days. This is because a laser can reach deeper into ingrown hairs. But Coolglide is painful.
Super Hair Removal (SHR) is used for general hair removal purposes. It can be used anywhere from the face to the extremities. It can be useful safely on all skin types. And most wonderfully, it is a painless treatment. Super Hair Removal (SHR) is done by nurses under the supervision of a doctor. They are designed to be quick and affordable. A consultation is not needed unless deemed necessary by the nurses.
