The upgraded and highly effective SHR Laser Hair Removal System represents a massive step forward in laser hair removal technology and we are one of the first clinics in the area to offer this advanced, pain-free method of permanent hair removal.
So what is SHR? (Super Hair Removal) with In-Motion Technology?
It's not like traditional IPL hair removal - it's faster, more efficient and produces better results. Using a patented diode laser technology, SHR permanently destroys hair follicles by using low fluence, repetitive light pulses, targeting the susceptible hair follicles.
Compared to IPL and laser light-based hair removal systems, which fire around 2-4 high powered shots into each hair follicle, the SHR fires a minimum of 20-30 shots into each follicle. This can be described as the difference between the speed of an automatic machine gun using SHR, to a single rifle shot using traditional IPL.
This new technology progressively heats the deeper layers of the skin where the hair follicle is growing, while keeping the skin surface cool using Crystal Contact cooling.
The In-Motion technology means that the whole area is covered as the applicator 'sweeps' over the treated area several times, ensuring that nothing is missed, unlike traditional IPL treatments. The applicator stays in constant contact with the skin rather than lifting off after every flash, which means faster and more accurate treatments.
ThermaVein® is a clinically proven red vein removal system that seals the thread vein walls safely through
a process called thermocoagulation. Vessels collapse immediately as the treatment is applied. It's a totally safe,
clinically proven method of vein removal that is used by doctors and aesthetic clinics worldwide.
How Does The Treatment Feel?
A small probe the width of a human hair is applied along the vessel, just touching but not breaking the skin. A short burst of radio frequency heat travels down the probe and permanently seals the red vein. Most people describe the sensation as similar to plucking out a hair. I had my nose veins treated two weeks ago, and it wasn't painful.
What Are The Results/After Effects?
Immediate disappearance of the vessel. Some redness or scabbing can happen afterwards, and the effects of the treatment go on working for some days following the treatment as the vessel is completely re-absorbed by the body.
