Super Hair Removal (SHR)
Finally, you can throw away the wax and the razor blades. At RESKIN, we offer latest technology and state-of-the-art hair removal services, which can remove hair in skin colour types 1 to 5. After several treatments, our patients can watch 60 – 90% of unwanted body hair disappear—for good. Laser hair removal treatments at RESKIN do not require local anesthesia, and most patients experience nothing more than a slight sting.
With SHR technology the hair removal methodology that involves the hair pigment uses only 50 per cent of the energy for permanent hair removal. The remaining 50 per cent is absorbed into the stem cells responsible for hair production through the skin during treatment with SHR technology.
There are 6 Fitzpatrick types, measured from type I to VI. Type I is the lightest skin and type VI the darkest.
I: Light, pale white skin
II: White, fair skin
III: Medium white to olive skin
IV: Olive, mid-brown skin
V: Brown, dark brown skin
VI: Very dark brown to black skin
With SHR technology one does not need single pulses with high energy. The skin is massaged six to ten times using low energy but with high frequency. This procedure is referred to as the so-called “in-Motion” methodology, because the hand piece is moved over the treated area in sliding movements. (Unlike this, the IPL technology is called “stamp technology”.)
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 multiple 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 to a comfortable temperature of 45° Celsius.
Treatment with SHR technology is fast, very effective and almost painless.
