SHR is an exclusive method of laser hair removal that works by gradually heating the dermis to the temperature needed to destroy the hair follicle and hair-producing cells, without damaging the surrounding tissue and surface of the skin.
The method is based on the exclusive In-Motion technology developed by Alma Lásers. It is a scanning technique that consists of moving the head and emitting energy continuously over the treatment area, employing low creep, fast repeating pulses and reaching maximum power in each session.
This novel technology, unlike traditional hair removal systems, does not resort to high energy spikes at each pulse, causing pain and burning. Therefore, SHR laser hair removal ensures comfort, increases the speed of procedure and allows to obtain repeatable results safely and effectively.
By not exposing the skin and hair root to a high energy pulse, this method also does not damage skins that contain a high amount of melanin (such as dark or tanned skins), allowing to obtain the same effectiveness in all skin types and making possible the application of the treatment throughout the months of the year.
