FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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 reduce the hairs. You will see lesser and finer hairs after each session. 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.

 

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 – 12 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 are not in active grow phase, will still need to be treated.

It is not unusual to see fine hairs after a few years due to hormonal changes, such as pregnancy, medication, menopause or aging. Touch up maintenance is recommended.
