How does the client feel during treatment?
SHR is almost painless and client only feels a warm sensation. It is lightning fast and will be over in minutes! There is no downtime!

What can I expect after each treatment?
As hair grows at different cycles, it will take repeat sessions to effectively bring the hair growth down. You will see lesser and finer hairs after each session. By the 4th – 6th session, most customers see 50 – 70% Hair Reduction or even better!

Please note that results differ between individual, such as skin tone, hair color, thickness etc. Unlike darker hairs, Red or Blond hairs will need more sessions.

How long should the intervals between the treatments?
Treatments are spaced at 3 weeks in the beginning. As hairs become lesser and finer, treatments will be spaced between 4-6 weeks.

How long does each session take?
It only takes 2 mins for Upperlips/ Underarms. For larger parts, such as legs, it takes between 10 – 15 mins.

What are the popular areas treated by SHR?
Almost any parts of the body can be treated. Most popular areas are underarms, upperlips, fingers, legs, arms, beards, Brazilian, back etc. It is also suitable for ingrown hairs.

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.
