8 Things You Need to Know About Super Hair Removal (SHR)

Super Hair Removal (SHR) is a revolutionary technology that uses low-energy light to target hair follicles, resulting in reduced hair growth over time. Are you tired of always shaving, waxing, or plucking unwanted hair? If you're looking for a more long-lasting and efficient hair removal solution, SHR might be the perfect option for you. However, before booking your first appointment, you should know a few important things about this treatment. In this blog, we'll review eight essential things you should know about Super Hair Removal.

1. What is Super Hair Removal (SHR)?

At Datsumo Labo, we offer advanced Super Hair Removal (SHR) techniques to help you feel confident with smooth, hair-free skin. Using rapid pulses of low-energy light, SHR gently damages the stem cells of unwanted hair, which helps to prevent regrowth. Compared to traditional hair removal treatments that use Laser and IPL, SHR is a faster, more gentle, and more effective method.

Super Hair Removal (SHR) is appropriate for individuals of all genders and skin types and can be applied to a wide range of facial and body areas, including:

  • Arms and underarms

  • Legs

  • Back and chest

  • Face (above the lips, nose, cheeks, chin, ears, and eyebrows)

  • Intimate/bikini line

2. How Does SHR Work?

Super Hair Removal (SHR) works by utilizing specific wavelengths of low-energy light that are rapidly pulsed into the skin. The targeted hair follicles are gently heated, which results in their permanent damage, preventing any further hair growth.

During the treatment, the applicator is moved back and forth across the designated area, ensuring that every inch of the skin receives the pulsing light. The length of each session varies depending on the area being treated. The larger the area, the longer the treatment time needed.

We provide a patch test if required during the initial consultation to ensure no adverse reactions. Our therapist will create a personalized treatment plan for your SHR hair removal course based on the patch test results.

3. How Long Does SHR Take To Work?

Super Hair Removal (SHR) treatment provides immediate results, but a few treatments are necessary to achieve the desired outcome. The number of sessions required varies depending on the individual's hair type, skin tone, and the area being treated. We recommend adhering to the treatment frequency and the total number of sessions suggested during your consultation with us to optimize your treatment's effectiveness.

After each session, there will be a noticeable reduction in the amount of hair in the treated area, with the remaining hair becoming thinner and lighter. With each subsequent treatment, more and more hair follicles are permanently damaged, resulting in less hair regrowth.

It's important to note that Super Hair Removal (SHR) provides long-lasting results but does not guarantee permanent hair removal. However, with proper maintenance and occasional touch-up treatments, most people can expect to remain hair-free for extended periods.

4. What Is The Downtime of SHR?

Super Hair Removal (SHR) is a non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime. After your treatment, you can immediately return to your daily activities, including work. You may experience mild redness or skin sensitivity in the treated area, but this usually subsides within a few hours. It's recommended to avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight and extreme temperatures for at least 24 hours following the procedure to ensure optimal recovery. Additionally, our therapist may recommend some post-treatment care guidelines to help you maintain the best results.

5. Does SHR Hurt?

Super Hair Removal (SHR) is known for being a gentle and comfortable hair removal treatment. Unlike traditional Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments, which use high energy levels that may cause discomfort and pain, SHR treatments utilize low energy levels, resulting in a mild and comfortable warming sensation on the skin. The procedure is generally well-tolerated by most patients and is considered to be virtually painless.

Additionally, the applicator used during SHR treatments is designed with built-in cooling functionality, which helps to ensure that you'll experience maximum comfort, even in the most sensitive areas. While everyone's pain threshold varies, most patients describe the sensation as a slight tingling or warming feeling. If you are concerned about pain during the treatment, our therapist can work with you to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

6. Is It Suitable For All Hair and Skin Types?

Super Hair Removal (SHR) is a versatile hair removal treatment that is suitable for a wide range of hair types and skin colors. Unlike traditional hair removal methods that are only effective on coarse and dark hairs, SHR can target fine and light hairs as well, making it a popular choice for people with light-colored hair such as blonde or gray. However, since lighter-colored hairs have less pigment, they may require more sessions to achieve optimal results.

One of the major advantages of SHR is that it is safe for all skin colors and types, including tanned and darker skin tones. However, it's important to note that it is not advisable to undergo tanning before or during your treatment as it can increase the risk of skin damage or hyperpigmentation. Our therapist will conduct a thorough consultation to determine the best approach for your skin and hair type and recommend the appropriate number of sessions required to achieve the best results.

Asian skin types are particularly well-suited to SHR, as the treatment effectively targets coarse, dark hair commonly found in this demographic. With its ability to safely and effectively remove hair from virtually any area of the face and body, SHR has become a popular and reliable option for people of all hair and skin types looking to achieve smooth, hair-free skin.

7. Are There Side Effects?

Unlike traditional hair removal methods like waxing or shaving, SHR targets the hair follicles with low and gentle energy pulses, significantly reducing the risk of side effects such as cuts, nicks, bumps, ingrown hairs, redness, and bleeding. This makes it a safe and comfortable option for people who are looking to achieve smooth, hair-free skin without experiencing any discomfort or pain.

8. Longer-lasting results

Super Hair Removal (SHR) can provide long-lasting results by targeting the hair follicles to prevent future hair growth. Permanent hair reduction can also be achieved by completing the recommended number of treatments. This means you don't have to worry about waxing or shaving every few days or weeks. This can be a significant cost-saver in the long run, as traditional hair removal methods often require frequent and expensive maintenance. By investing in SHR treatments, you can enjoy hair-free skin for a longer period of time without having to continuously buy razors, shaving cream, or book waxing appointments.

However, it is important to note that SHR only permanently damages hair follicles in the active growth stage. Hair follicles in other stages may require additional treatments. Additionally, hair growth occurs in cycles, so repeat treatments are necessary to disable hair growth effectively. It is also possible to see fine hair after the initial treatment due to various factors such as hormonal changes, stress, menopause, and medications.
