What is SHR Hair Reduction?

SHR (Super Hair Reduction) is the latest breakthrough innovation in IPL permanent hair reduction. The gradual heating method of the IPL SHR light delivery to the hair follicle means that treatments are comfortable. As with IPL, this heating will de nature the environment of the hair and slow growth of terminal hairs. At Skin Correctives, our machinery is fitted out with on board cooling systems to ensure more comfortable, safe treatments. SHR Treatments are suitable for a wide range of skin types and hair colours. The SHR technique is designed for fast and effectives treatment of larger areas. Traditional IPL might be used to treat areas where SHR is not able to.
