What is IPL Hair Removal?
First and foremost, IPL (or intense pulse light) uses a single pulse of energy, at high intensity, which targets the customer's hair follicles and melanin. IPL simply works by releasing light in multiple wavelengths directly into the dermis. Melanin is produced in specialised cells called melanocytes. The intense light and energy from IPL is converted into heat energy and is able to cause damage to the hair follicles without causing too much damage to the skin. This makes IPL more suitable for people with darker and coarser hair. Establishments which offer IPL include Japan IPL, Musee Platinum as well as Lush Aesthetics.
A person with fairer skin will likely require more sessions as the IPL hair removal technology is less effective on them. On the other hand, while IPL is effective for darker-skinned people, they may have more uncomfortable session (i.e. PAIN!) since their skin will be absorbing more heat energy which would then be translated into pain when the heat affects the nerves.

How Many SHR Treatments are Necessary for Effective Hair Removal?
If the hair is in the anagen phase of growth during treatment, which refers to the active (hair) growth phase, it can be easily destroyed as in the case with IPL technology. The advantage of SHR hair removal in this case is that it can work with customers during both their anagen phase and non-anagen phase, as SHR can target the 50% of the stem cells. Nevertheless, a three-to-four week recovery or "down" time is required to meet this anagen phase as well as to give the skin a recovery time before the next treatment.

SHR (super hair removal) is similar to an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment. The main difference is that the SHR device dispenses light energy with a higher frequency at a lower temperature compared to IPL devices. This newer technology is touted to be more effective at nixing hair follicles while posing less discomfort.
Procedure: After being stripped and shaven clean to expose the hair follicles, aloe vera gel is applied to protect the skin. The aesthetician then carefully works the device over the desired areas in swift motions. Unlike in IPL where the treatment feels like getting snapped by multiple rubber bands, SHR feels like being passed over by shots of warm air.
Results: Effects of weakened follicles (slower regrowth and finer hair strands) are apparent after five to seven sessions.
Pros: The process was painless and the effects are lasting.
Cons: It’s costly and results are not immediate – they can only be seen after five to seven treatments.
Post-care tip: Exfoliate in between appointments.
We recommend: Boyzilian, $144 per session at Wellaholic. More details are available at www.wellaholic.com.
