SHR stands for Super Hair Removal, a non-laser technology of permanent hair removal which is having sweeping success. The system combines the newest released technology and the benefits of the pulsating light method achieving practically painless results. Even hairs which until now have been difficult or even impossible to be removed, can now be treated. SHR represents a breakthrough in permanent hair removal with light technology. The treatment is more pleasant than the conventional systems, leaving your skin better protected. Traditional laser or IPL technologies employ short impulses of approximately 2-100 milliseconds applying a vast amount of energy (12-120 Joule on one square centimetre). Energy is then transported to the hair root through melanin, where warmth of 65-72 Celsius is produced. Energy reaches the root of the hair follicle solely through melanin. Skin and red blood cells have a similar absorption coefficient as melanin and therefore also absorb the high levels of energy produced by the laser and IPL methods. This can lead to swelling lasting several days or even to third-degree burns. SHR technology, on the other hand, utilizes the melanin path only partially (50%), Skin in penetrated down to the follicles which produce hair growth. Research has shown that a slower, but longer heating process is considerably more effective for permanent hair removal than high and short levels of energy. Therefore, when using SHR, the device is passed over the tissue 6-10 times (in motion) using low energy but a high rate of repetition (up to 10Hz, i.e. 10 times per second) instead of using the traditional method with single, high energy impulses. Thus, the hair melanin as well as the tissue of the stem cells is heated with low energy at a slow pace and over a longer period of time (90 seconds) to a comfortable temperature of 45 Celsius. SHR enables the successful treatment of blonde and even white hair, given that the hair pigment is only secondary.
