I have worked in the aesthetics industry in Singapore for over eight years and have closely witnessed the development of hair removal technologies.
Today, I want to talk about SHR, IPL, and Laser treatments. These are popular in Singapore. Each has its benefits, and choosing the right one can be confusing.
In this piece, I’ll break down SHR, IPL, and Laser treatments. I’ve gathered insights from customer experiences and expert advice. This will help you understand which method might suit you best.
We’ll look at how each technology works. We’ll also consider skin types and hair textures. Safety, comfort, and results matter too.
Wellaholic Research conducted a study and discovered that 71% of women in Singapore and 63% in Malaysia use hair removal methods.
1. What is SHR (Super Hair Removal)?
Gentle, Effective, and Comfortable: The Unique Approach of SHR Technology
At Wellaholic, we’ve embraced SHR, or Super Hair Removal, and I’ve seen its impact first-hand. Unlike traditional methods that blast hair follicles with a single intense pulse, SHR takes a gentler approach. It uses low-intensity light, delivered in multiple pulses, to target hair follicles. This method is not just safer but also effective for a variety of skin and hair types.
The special thing about SHR is that it heats the hair follicles slowly, which reduces hair growth without causing discomfort or the risk of skin damage that other treatments may have. It’s designed to pinpoint the follicles that contribute to future growth, ensuring a smooth, permanent hair reduction experience.
The Gentle Heat of SHR Technology
SHR, or Super Hair Removal, has truly revolutionized the way we approach hair removal at Wellaholic. Its secret? Gently warming hair follicles to stop unwanted hair growth, almost like giving them a warm hug that tells them, “it’s time to relax.” This method isn’t just about removing what’s there; it targets the very source of hair growth. By focusing on the hair follicles preparing for future growth, SHR addresses the root of the issue, leading to long-lasting smoothness.
2. What is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)?
IPL vs SHR: Comparing Hair Removal Treatments in Singapore
IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is another popular hair removal treatment in Singapore. This method uses broad-spectrum light to target hair follicles, helping to reduce and prevent hair growth over time. IPL may not work well on fine hair or darker skin tones compared to SHR, and it requires more sessions for complete hair reduction.
A Tale of Comfort and Intensity
At Wellaholic, we have helped many clients choose between Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Super Hair Removal (SHR). Both are effective for hair removal, but they cater to different needs and preferences. IPL uses light to heat and stop hair growth. It’s potent, yet this intensity might not sit well with everyone. Especially if you have sensitive skin or thick hair, IPL could feel a bit too much.
SHR, on the other hand, takes a gentler approach. It still targets the follicles but with lower energy and more frequent pulses.This technique reduces skin risks and makes the treatment more comfortable for most people. From what I’ve seen, clients often lean towards SHR for its comfort, even as it effectively reduces hair growth.
3. What is Laser Hair Removal?
Delving Deeper into Laser Hair Removal
In Singapore, laser hair removal is a go-to for many seeking smooth, hair-free skin. The laser heats up the melanin in the follicles, stopping hair growth.
In my experience at Wellaholic, laser hair removal has really picked up steam. The key is the contrast – light skin with dark hair is the ideal combo. The laser targets the melanin in the hair, while leaving the skin unharmed. However, it poses a greater challenge for individuals with dark skin or light hair.
The laser might not differentiate the hair from the skin as well, which can be less effective or increase the risk of skin damage. This insight helps us guide our clients to the best treatment options for their unique profiles.
According to a study by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and Wellaholic Research, SHR hair removal can reduce hair by up to 70% after six sessions.
4. SHR vs IPL vs Laser: Comparing the Techniques
It’s important to understand how different hair removal methods work for different hair types and skin colours. Super Hair Removal (SHR) is very effective for different hair types and skin colors, including tanned skin.
On the other hand, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is particularly suitable for individuals with lighter skin and darker hair. Laser hair removal, known for its precision, is highly effective, especially for those with dark hair and light skin.
SHR – Why It Reigns Supreme for Painless Hair Removal
SHR is known for its comfort and is considered less painful than other hair removal methods. IPL can be slightly more uncomfortable, often compared to the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin. Laser hair removal is usually more painful than SHR and IPL, but technology advancements have made it more comfortable.
SHR vs. Laser vs. IPL: The Verdict on Treatment Efficiency for Different Areas
Safety is another crucial factor. SHR is deemed very safe, posing a lower risk of burns, particularly for individuals with darker skin tones. However, IPL can present risks for darker skin tones due to its broad spectrum of light. Laser hair removal necessitates precise settings to ensure safety, particularly for those with darker skin.
Finally, the treatment time varies across these methods. SHR is typically faster than traditional laser treatments, making it a time-efficient choice. IPL’s treatment time can vary, usually quicker than laser but not as fast as SHR. Laser treatments can be more time-consuming, especially for larger areas, requiring more sessions for complete coverage.

That’s why it’s so popular. SHR’s ability to deliver results with minimal discomfort makes it a favoured choice.

Its precision and effectiveness make it a top choice for those seeking meticulous results.
6. My Personal Observations (IPL vs SHR vs Laser)
In my professional journey, I have observed a variety of outcomes with different hair removal technologies. Super Hair Removal (SHR) is a reliable option for many clients because it consistently delivers excellent results on various skin types. Additionally, it has fewer side effects compared to other methods.
IPL is effective, but it requires a careful evaluation to make sure it’s right for different skin and hair types.
Its effectiveness is maximized when accurately matched with the right candidate. Laser hair removal, known for its high efficacy, necessitates the expertise of a skilled practitioner to achieve the best results.
7. Final Thoughts and Recommendations
Choosing the Right Method (for Hair Removal)
Selecting the appropriate hair removal method is a decision that should be tailored to individual needs and characteristics. Consider factors such as your skin type, hair colour, pain tolerance, and the results you want to achieve.
Various methods are more effective for different skin and hair types, and what works for one person may not be the best choice for another.
Pain Tolerance Spectrum: From Gentle to Gritty – Finding Your Hair Removal Sweet Spot
People with darker skin tones may prefer SHR, while those with lighter skin and darker hair may find IPL more beneficial.
For precise hair removal in areas like the bikini line, laser hair removal is the most effective method, but it can be more painful.
Laser hair removal is the most precise method for the bikini line, but it can be more painful. I recommend consulting with a professional to assess your situation and guide you towards the best choice.
Based on my experience in the aesthetics industry, Super Hair Removal (SHR) is often the best choice in terms of effectiveness, comfort, and safety. This makes it a highly preferred choice among our clients in Singapore.
