FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  1. How does the customer feel during treatment?

SHR is almost pain-less with a warm sensation. It is lightning-fast and will be over in a few minutes before the customer knows it. There is no downtime.

 

  1. What can the customer expect after each treatment?

As hair grows at different cycles, it will take repeat treatments to effectively bring the hair growth down. The hair will become lesser and finer after each treatment.

Most customers can see 40 – 70% reduction by the mid of the package or even better! The number of sessions required differ between individuals. Please note that results differ between individuals, such as:

 

  • Skin tone
  • Hair color
  • Thickness/ volume
  • Individual hormones (or on medications)
  • Treatment area
  • Unlike darker hairs, red or blond hairs will need more sessions.

 

  1. How long should the intervals between the treatments?

Treatments are spaced at three weeks in the beginning. As hairs become lesser and finer, treatments will be spaced between four and six weeks.

 

  1. How long does each session take?

The lightning speed of SHR means that the treatment time is shorter. It takes two to five minutes to treat upper lips/ underarms. For larger body parts, such as legs, it will take between 10 and 20 minutes.

 

  1. What are the popular areas treated by SHR?

Almost any part of the body can be treated. Most popular areas are underarms, upper lips, fingers, legs, arms, beards, Brazilian, chest, back, etc. It is also suitable for ingrown hairs.

 

  1. Will my Hairs ever grow back?

Actively growing hairs that have been treated with SHR will not grow back. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase, will still need to be treated. It is not unusual to see fine hairs after initial treatments after a few years due to hormonal changes such as menopause, pregnancy or aging. Touch-up maintenance is recommended.

 

SHR for 16 – 17 years old

  • Parental consent and presence are required on the first appointment.
  • More sessions will be needed, as hormones are still changing, and hair growth is still rampant during teenage years.
  • Results vary among individuals. Everyone will experience hair-regrowth over time, REGARDLESS of the technology use as new cells are regenerated.
