WHAT IS SHR?
SHR actually stands for Super Hair Removal, this is a form of permanent hair removal, that heats the germ cell within the follicle. It's generally a painless experience with fewer side effects than alternative methods. Plus, it is a newer more safer option for permanent hair removal that is currently available on today’s market. Using the most up-to-date technology, this method proves timely and efficient when carried out by a trained professional.
How Does It Work?
SHR treatment is designed to cause long-lasting damage to targeted hair follicles which are in the grown stage (anagen). This in turn prevents the re-growth of the hair. By heating over the chosen area, the applicator varies in temperature to ensure maximum effect. Short and gentle energy pulses are released, these directly target the hair follicle if they are at the growing stage.
How Long Will The Treatment Take?
In as little as a coffee break or lunch hour. The treatment itself can take from as little as five minutes! Up to 1 hour or more for larger areas, and a facial treatment will take on average fifteen minutes, with both legs for 30 minutes.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
For long term hair removal to be successful you will need an average of 6 sessions. However the exact quantity will be discussed with you upon initial consultation as we like to ensure our clients are fully informed of all aspects when it comes to the treatments we offer.
Is SHR Permanent Hair Removal Suitable For Everyone?
SHR is one of the only treatments available offering suitability for most skin types. Remember, this method involves heating and cooling as opposed to follicle exposure via high intensity pulses. Although the procedure is suitable all-year round, you should not have an active tan or be wearing fake tanning creams.
How Safe is it ?
From the clinical studies undertaken, SHR has been proven to be the safest method of light based hair reduction for all skin types. Melanin found within darker skin is known to be much more sensitive to the heat when used in light based treatments.
Is Preparation Required Before My Treatment?
In order for the treatment to be as successful as it possibly can be there are a few requirements to take on board:

ADVANCED LASER TATTOO REMOVAL

Will my tattoo be completely removed?
Possibly Yes! Modern lasers can give fantastic results but there are no guarantees. Sometimes the total elimination of the tattoo is not possible, despite the promises some tattoo removal specialists may give.
The success of the treatment depends on the colour and type of ink used, the age of tattoo, application method, depth of ink, depth of colours, area of tattoo, your body’s healing ability and your skin type and how you are with after care.
Tattoos that are carried out by professionals are usually more difficult to remove as they contain more pigment colours and there is much more detail in the design. Often with a professional tattoo, the pigment colours are applied more deeply into the skin, and because of this it may take additional treatment sessions.
Surprisingly, there is no recognised standard for the manufacture of tattoo ink, and sometimes inks can be mixed with other unknown compounds. If your tattoo contains iron pigment for example, this could result in immediate pigment darkening, with the laser treatment area turning black. This is another reason why we insist that a patch test is always carried out on your tattoo before any course of treatments can begin. So that potentially rare complications of laser treatment like this, or any others, can be predicted.
Tattoo lightening may continue for several months after the last treatment session.
Can you remove all colours?
Laser tattoo removal works best on tattoos of black ink that have been sparsely applied to fair skin. As the laser is attracted to the darker areas, fair coloured skin gives a greater contrast allowing the laser to work more effectively. Black ink is also able to absorb the full spectrum of light.
A wide range of other colours can usually be removed successfully or lightened to a large degree including brown, red, orange, dark green, blue and purple. It’s also important to note that some people can have an allergic reaction to red ink particles absorbed into the body.
The most difficult colours to remove are pastel colours such as light green, pale blue, teal, turquoise and pink. These colours may be lightened, but it is difficult to remove them completely. If you are looking to cover-up your tattoo with a new design these pastel colours are usually easy to cover.
We will discuss your individual tattoo at the consultation and if you have colours that do not typically respond well.
Will laser tattoo removal hurt?
There will be some discomfort and it is possible to experience a small amount of pain in the area afterwards (like you do after having a tattoo) The laser pulses have been likened to having your skin ‘Pinged’ with an elastic band, This is usually tolerated by most people without any anaesthetic, although anaesthetic is an option.
Some areas can prove more sensitive than others, especially around the ankles or the shoulder blades. However, the discomfort does decrease as treatment progresses and the tattoo fades.
How long will the treatment take?
The treatment can take between 5 and 30 minutes. Longer sessions may cause too much trauma to the skin. This means that larger tattoos need to be treated in several separate sessions similar to when they are created in the first place.
Depending on the size of the tattoo and the results desired (i.e. removal or fading for cover up) 4 to 12 sessions may be required.
Each person and each tattoo is unique so the number of treatment sessions you will need can vary.
Each session will be between 6-8 weeks apart. this depends on your body’s capabilities to dispel the ink and skin healing properties, this will be reviewed throughout the treatments and your clinician will advise you. For treatment to be successful it is a long process... to get the best results clients are advised to be patient.
Am I a suitable candidate for treatment?
Certain medical conditions and medications would make exposure to the laser treatment not suitable for you, this is why a consultation and patch test is required.
How does the laser treatment work on tattoos?
We use a Nd.Yag. Q-switched laser, which has been proven to be one of the most effective lasers for Tattoo removal, this is a very high powered laser which delivers a quick pulse.
The light energy produced tends to pass through normal pigmented skin and specifically targets shattering the pigment on the tattoo ink deep in the dermis layer. As the ink absorbs this light energy, the ink breaks down into smaller particles which is then evacuated from the body, through normal immune response. As the ink particles are removed, the tattoo begins to fade.
Can i have just a part of my tattoo removed?
Yes you can. Our lasers are very accurate so we can do things like taking the face or flower off or removing just a name, you can then have it redone should you wish to.
