How SHR Hair Removal Can Prevent The Pesky Keratosis Pilaris

As more women in Singapore are seeking hair removal services, IPL treatments are becoming more popular as they not only remove hair but also improve the appearance of one’s skin by eliminating dead skin cells. But did you know that there is another semi-permanent hair removal treatment that has the potential to smoothen, whiten and reduce the likelihood of pesky bumps appearing on your skin?

Introducing: SHR hair removal – a solution that is a better upgrade from IPL hair removal machines! Allowing you to achieve results regardless of your skin tone and condition, find out how the latest technology can also prevent conditions such as keratosis pilaris.

What is keratosis pilaris?

Keratosis pilaris is a skin condition characterised by harmless, tiny bumps on your skin that may feel dry to the touch and resemble goosebumps. It is also known as “chicken skin” and is caused by a build-up of dead skin cells and keratin in your hair follicles.

Keratin is a protein produced during hair growth. While keratin protects your skin from harmful substances and infection, excess amounts of these may result in the small raised bumps along your skin that feel like sandpaper. Often mistaken as patches of ingrown hair, they can be found on parts of your body where hair grows, most commonly on the upper arms and thighs.

While keratosis pilaris is harmless and usually doesn’t itch, you may feel uncomfortable and insecure about these patches of skin.

How does SHR hair removal work to reduce keratosis pilaris?

While IPL treatments are often used by dermatologists to improve the appearance of the skin and also remove unwanted hair, the intensity of the laser is not suitable for those with darker skin tones. On the other hand, SHR hair removal works on the premise of using gentler pulses at a higher frequency – meaning to say that they still do the job but is also less painful and much more efficient!

As keratosis pilaris contains dead skin cells in these follicles, performing SHR treatments on your arms and legs helps to not only remove the hair around these areas but also targets the build-up of keratin. In turn, this reduces the inflammation and bumpy appearance of your skin!

While SHR treatments are not a definite answer to keratosis pilaris, just a few sessions are enough to see a reduction in skin roughness. So, if you are looking for a way to target both your skin issues and efficiently remove your hair, SHR treatments might just be the solution you are looking for!
